    Hi,
    I'm New To The Landscape Business. I Live In Nh I Wanted To See If Anyone Could Give Me Some Pointers On How They Keep Records And Come Up W/ Estimates And Run The Business I Guess. I Have A Partner In This With Me And So Far We've Been Doing It With Common Sense. Any Info Would Be Great. Thanks

    where in NH you from? and my advice do you if you havnt already done so is to make sure you get insurence first off, and as far as the records go, keep extremely good ones!, keep track, right down, and save every little thing you do and spend for your business... congrats, on starting up by the way

    We're Out Of Seabrook. We Got The Insurance Already. We Met With The Accountant And He Thought That The Grounds Kepper Pro Program Wasn't Good For Us Because You Can't Print Out Reports And Compare Them Against Each Other And Past Years And Stuff. He Said To Get Quick Books. What Do You Think? Also Where Are You From. How Long You Been In It?

    well i've been in the business for 5 years, but considering my age (20) i guess you could still consider me a rookie, but i've been going on my own the past 3, i have just one gravely walk behind that does me just fine for my lawns, last year i started doing bigger jobs and instulations, and this year i'll progress that and do more lawns and more designs, i'm looking into either a new exmark walk behind, or a zero turn i havnt decided yet. how long you been in this area, if you've been in the fire business a while im sure you've heard of harold harbour, he's my gramps.
