    Groundskeeper Pro was sort of hard for me to get used to...
    I like Gopher so far (only had it a week)
    I am also going to try the Lawn Monkey software

    You can try'em all before you buy, most of this program have a 30 days trial period with no commiment.

    For me it was Gopher the clearly winner.
    Reason.

    1.- Real easy to use
    2.- Customer Support.
    3.- Link to QB (need some more work done)
    4.- Price
    5.- Tracking of chemicals

    And there's some other nice features about it, all in all gopher is a complete software, especially designated for this industry, it allows you to have as many customers as you wish for the same price (unlike Clip) free customer support (unlike LM) real easy to use (unlike GK) and they also are working in some nice future projects.

    I'd recommend gopher to anyone but you can only decide if it fullfill your needs.

    Will Gopher price out an job by the k ? I played with it but never could get it to do it . Say you fert 3k for 8.00 per k = 24.00 will it automaticlly compute it ?

    Groundkeeper is pretty good. Some stuff was hard to learn one thing I hate is that you cant print preview your invoices. I'm still trying to get used to it, also havent figured out how to make a backup disk yet.
