    I just started a lawn cutting business and I have 7 lawns that I cut regularly. As I am just starting out I was wondering how to keep all of your lawns and customers organized and how to schedule the customers

    I use Gopher Software program. Simple and it prints up nice invoices, estimates, etc. Also keeps track of money out/in. Pretty impressed so far.

    A PDA is another idea, and on that note they need to make a PDAGPS lol but they're never geared for Ag applications.

    I write everything down and keep stacks upon stacks of paperwork.

    Maybe I'll invest in some software soon.
