    Hey guys I have read some terrible reviews on lawn pro and Im glad I did because I was about to buy it. What would be the best program to use for a lawn care business? I also have a tree service but I could easily use the same program for both. How about lawnaid?

    i would like it to do everything kind of like lawn pro advertises. billing, calendars, invoices, expenses, tell me when customers are late on payment. i have been looking at groundskeeper pro...your thoughts?

    Most programs specifically tailored to lawn businesses are poorly done IMO.

    Quickbooks is fantastic.

    I must have missed the scheduling features on qb. I use clip for scheduling and qb for invoicing
