    Never thought of this but was pointed out in another thread.
    So post your some sat pictures of your accounts that you mow.

    Here's mine of Northshore School District.

    Its pretty easy to do just go to Google Maps, find your location, hit the print screen button on the keyboard, paste it in MS paint, outline your account (I used red), and host.

    A lot easier than I thought It'd be. Might see something interesting if we keep it going. Here's a couple of mine-

    Yep, you're right, the sports complex is on the mississippi. In the 1st picture from L to R it's a ~ 4 acre nursing home, 5 acre residential, 7 acre residential, and down low theres a dot that marks a small corner residential.

    I use satelite pics all the time to give estimates. Works great and saves me gas.

    Likewise - I use the county maps that are aireal photos - have the distance and area measuring devices, and this is very accurate on larger properties. I believe they are called GIF maps.

    Yes they are very nice to use. I got a call today to give an estimate for lawn maintenance/lawn care. Its been pouring all day. I'm thankful for those satelites. Nice and dry until I had to pick up some plants from my nursery.

    How do you print screen? I see a button on my computer called Prtsc - but it wont do anything. Is there another way to do it as I do not have MS paint? Thank, Eric
