Free tool

I posted this a while back but wanted to post again for those that might have missed it. We have a free tool that helps you measure out lawns. http://servicevines.com/jobs/measureit

I know that lots of guys want to do an onsite visit but this can at least give you an idea or if you don't want to drive out give a ball park estimate. The feedback has been good one guy said he'd like the dots to be a little smaller if we consistently get that feedback we'll try and do that.

i tried my house, i placed the pins and it is quite accurate to my surprise, the only problem is that the view of my property is from an angle above + behind my property so the tree line blocks out about 1/2 of the actual turf areas--- since i know my property i placed the pins in the trees on the map (where i know it goes too) so maybe ill try a current customer in an open location

thanks jbturf like a said I think it's good for "ball parking" things. If you have problems with the address lookup we are looking into it. Just like equipment fails sometimes software does too.

We have worked almost every Sat this year, late starts and we get out early afternoon, we better be done by wed. we will work into mid dec doing maintenance on equip, trucks, trailers and clean the shop etc, all the pumps and my motor home got winterized last week when they forecasted 28 deg lows. Now we get to spend the winter collecting money
