    Landscaper,
    If they are already customers? who cares. These guys are idiots. A customer is not going to leave you because of a written invoice. All they care about is the price. I have been in the business for 11 years now and trust me unless you have a vendors account with some huge franchise, don't worry about it. Quick books is just as unprofessional. When you get going Get Real Green invoices. Lawn Assistant is the best program out there. Make sure your estimates ,flyers, and business cards look the best. That's what is important. http://www.perfco.net/ has some great estimates and flyers for the business. Don't let these little guys tell you anything.

    That's funny because look what YOUR Profile that YOU wrote says about being in business....

    just started




    As to Quickbooks, shows what you know...or don't know, as their Invoices can easily be Customized and you can even include logos if you wish and is the most widely used financial Business Program on the market, kid.


    As to "little guys", son I blew more money last year than you made...

    Yes it says been in the business not owned a business. I started my business last year and I already have over 100 customers. I was previously a manager of an athletic field contracting business. With 11 years under my belt with such projects as Pro Player Stadium ,Great American Ball Park Turner Field I know turf management. I got tired of traveling so I quit. I know there is a good future in this business. I am a turf expert :waving: So when it comes to knowing about the business I think I have ya beat! I mostly do lawn care but I have about 12 mowing accounts. I was just trying to help the guy out by the way. Perfco has the best lawn supplies that I have seen. So buddy you should have read more carefully before getting all excited!
