They don't accept arms and legs just money.
Making it the old fashion way.

Quick books is awesome. It will do more than billing, It will tell where you are making the money.
If you need help there are alot of forums that will help you get started.

Groundskeeper Plus or Qxpress by Alocet (which intergrates with Quickbooks Pro and you must have) both run in the $350 dollar range. I have Lawn Monkey by Alocet and love it, but it runs about $850. It is the same as Qxpress but with accounting features. A very well designed program. You can get free demos of both program as well as most programs offered in this industry.

This site has tons of templates and it's free. (You have to have Microsoft Word to use them). I've just started using them for invoicing this year and if you add a little color and creativity they look really professional.

Good Luck Scarlett!

We have been using QuickBooks Pro for a number of years now and think it's great.

I'm currently using a cheapo generic program that I got at Staples.
It's ProVentures "Invoices & Estimates". Cost like $20.
It's pretty basic but it does everything I need it to for now.
