    well there are the books at lawncare success on this site (to be honest never looked at them though) your public library will have books I'm sure. The best one I've found for a beginer is by Joel LaRusic. He is going to be Podcasting on Gopher softwares site soon. You want to look at their site too, link is at the top. Other software alterantives are lawnpro, clip, quickbooks with addons run on top of them like http://www.qxpress.com/ or http://www.insightdirect.com/industries/lawn_care_software.html?src=G3044kw=landscaping_software
    haven't used either of those. I just generaly stick to opensource software that is free or nearly free like Quasar for accounting, OpenOffice.org for their database and spreadsheets, and use yahoo for email, calendaring because with Itellisynch it goes to my PDA. Welcome to the site and good luck. Really all the questions you have can be answered right here. :waving:
