Software for Landscape, Irrigation Contractors


Whether you're just beginning "computerize" your office, or you're a contractor who's been using this kind of office technology for years, there's plenty of software from which to choose.

Industry-specific software can be divided into five general groups, as noted in the accompanying chart.

Included in the "business management" category are products that track and/or compute billing, accounting, payroll, scheduling, muting, personnel, vehicles and/or invoicing.

In the "estimating" category are programs that will calculate the components of any job and--after you enter profit and other parameters--give you an accurate estimate of what you should be charging for it.

"Horticultural" programs am often simply databases that you can use to pick the appropriate plant for the site.

"Design/imaging" programs run the gauntlet from inexpensive, almost consumer-simple graphic tools to ones that will not only help you design a landscape but also let you insert specific hardscaping and plants and create blueprints or images of the projected landscape.

Finally, "irrigation" programs invariably allow you to connect your computer to an irrigation system and, in some cases, weather-monitoring equipment. Some of the products will also help you actually design an efficient irrigation system.
