    How many accounts untill you bought software. After my first year I have about 25 lawns. Hope to double that. I am using invoicing software which seems to work. Is the gopher software the best? Or something else. Is it worth the $$

    I bought my first software alomost nine years ago before I even had five customers, I'm using a program similar to Quick books now.

    We use Quickbooks for the bookkeeping. In the past we used a speadsheet to keep track of the schedule. This year we are trying Qexpress scheduling software.. I expect a huge reduction in the amount of paperwork. We service over 200 properties.

    Great software, just need to pay attention when applying payments.

    Also, Green 'n Clean, What's the green industry like in Delaware? Was thinking about moving there a few years ago, but didn't think there was much oppurtunity for a lawn biz? Also thought about commuting back to jersey, that was not a good idea! Thanks

    Got a question for you. I use Quickbooks and Qxpress also for about 200 properties. How do you schedule mulch, annuals, etc for full service customers? It is getting to the point where I cannot remember everything for everyone anymore. Do you just manually insert these services in once a year?
