If you need some help with yard work, this peer-to-peer platform finds students who can help you out. Yaardvark enables local homeowners to recruit people nearby who enjoy working outdoors or have a green thumb.

Both parties create a profile on the free site, detailing either what tools workers have and their availability, or what help with yard work is needed and the offered pay. Yaardvark lets employers and employees to connect with each other and make arrangements. After the job is completed, they can also review each other on the website.

This isn't the first time a P2P function has been used with chore completion or housekeeping, but could have an interesting impact when introduced to short term rental services.
