There is a lot of info in other threads on this subject. I personally use groundskeeper pro because it was cheap and very elementry. Hopefully with a good year this year I will be upgrading to realgreen.

I use Lawn Monkey and really like it. The price was high, but if you're going to be in this business for the long haul, it's easily justified. I wanted something powerful and something I can grow into. I still only use probably use 10%.

If I was to do it all over again, I would look at Gopher. It's cheaper and looks pretty good. Gopher was not around when I started.

I have Gopher we dont use it anymore used it for 3-4 years and they never seem to try to make updates to the software. We later switched to Turf Gold they have taken care of us for a little over 3 years. I like it we run 3 computers linked together on our network with it. My advice is if you plan on growing your business is to grow into your software not out. It took weeks to transfer date into our new system and that was 3 people entering contracts, services, items and clients info.

Qxpress Platinum with Quickbooks Pro. Excellent combo for most all Lco's regardless of size. We used Groundskeeper, Clip and found Groundskeeper to be limited on functions and Clip to be confusing and glitchy.
