Along with mowers, trimmers, blowers, etc a digital camera has been a must have for my business. I'm not sure how many of you carry one or use it in your business. I use mine enough for it to be a legitmate write off come tax time and definately part of my business. We have alot of vacation homes in this area and my clients live in other states. I started sending photo's of the work so they could see how things were looking even though they could not physically be there to check my work. If a bank had a lot that was far from the main branch I would often include pictures to indicate the work I done and also they could use them for sales purposes (repo's), now real estate company's from out of state are requiring before and after photo's. I really never expected a digital camera to be such a big part of my work but that's how its turned out. You guys that have clients that say their grass was not cut can have pictures as proof of your work. I did have one lady that wondered why her lawn didn't look as lush as it did in the Spring and wanted me to keep it that way, so it can backfire. I can't make mid Summer grass look lush during dry spells but other than that it has been a very positive influence on my business. In fact many seem to have much more trust in me and even send keys to inspect the homes while they are away.
