Wanted everyone to know before i post this. I was not paid, For what I am about to say.



I bought the this program from shttp://www.startalawncarebusiness.com/ I wanted to see what all was in this "kit". I have read the manual from front to back a few times. I have to say this is the BEST for a new Lawn Care Company to buy this thing has ton og good information in it. They are way to many things for me to list about this product in one thread. They offer 2 packages. I suggest you buy the 29.95 one. reason I say this is that it comes with a printed manual and you can take that manual with one job sites. You can mark reference points in it and when some thing comes up you can point back to it and get your answer.


Lawn Care Business and Landscaping Business Guidebook, Software,
Estimating Calculators, and Training Videos.

I think this would be a valuable asset to any young lawn care company. I urge you guys to get this program if you have any douts in estimating or wanting to know how to bid on jobs.

A long time ago I bought William Feller's package with mowingformoney.com for $70. It was a waste of money. Maybe worth $20. Just thought I'd throw that in there.
I wouldn't recommend it at all.

Do you guys think there's a base # of feet that can be mowed per hour for estimating? I know the equipment makes all the difference, but I've never estimated my mowing time, since I used to work for the city mowing all the parks and I was paid by the hour, so I never really calculated how much I got done per hour. I did order this guys software and was looking at his tip for using that Google Earth software, but new to me to figure out the feet of an area for estimating large fields.

Sure! Have you gotten yourself an surveyor's wheel?

http://www.agtprint.com/s16/03/graphics/indexpic.jpg

You could find the square footage of the yards you mow and then time how long it takes you to mow them.

Then you will have an average for you based on sq ft.

Later when you do estimates you could find the sq. ft. of the property and then use your estimate to calculate how long it will take you.

What's your view on that?

ABurlison

Well, I suppose a wheel would work, but I was referring to the Google Earth program, where you can do the same measuring without leaving the house and spending a lot of time at it.

FourSeasons

Thats what i do is use a measuring wheel to figure out what to charge. Even though your talking about google earth.

ABurlison
11-22-2007, 03:32 PM
And do you charge a certain amount per sq. ft or linear feet?

Rob this package is great and good for the money. I did not buy it cause it need it . I bought cause i was looking for a program that could help you guys. I feel this will help you prosper in your business. I 100% recommend this.

I ordered the software today, and was wondering does it have a good form I can fill out for estimates and give to potential customers? It would be nice to give something in writing, so they have a paper to look at after I leave instead of just remembering our conversation.

Hey All:

Thank you for the compliments. I designed the program to be beneficial to newbies and pros alike. Most everyone will get something of benefit out of it.

Andy, thanks for your question about the Google Earth method of estimating. Your question has jump-started me into a project I've been thinking of for awhile. I am putting together a video tutorial on how to used Google Earth along with my estimating calculators. This will make the process more understandable. I have a busy day and weekend ahead but bear with me and I'll upload it and get it posted here by sometime next week.

Thanks again:

Keith

Matt:

You know that I cannot give you actual, final prices...I just can't do that. But, if you have any questions about the calculations, the bidding process, or how to go about a certain aspect of it, I am more than willing to help.

You are on the right track here.

I really believe you are going to do great with this.

Keith
