Is there a fee to use Yardbook?

You will always be able to run your business on Yardbook for free. Unlike many software companies, we offer an extensive set of features for free.

For folks who require a more advanced set of features – we now offer premium features here.

Why is Yardbook free?

Yardbook has a sponsored ad business model similar to Google and Facebook. This model enables our users to benefit from the software for free and has enabled Yardbook to continuously innovate and improve the product. We also now offer optional premium features for larger companies that may require more sophisticated functionality to run their business.

The Yardbook team is committed to providing affordable and tailored software to best support your landscape business, no matter the size.

Is my data secure?

Rest assured, we will not sell or trade your personal and business information with anyone (see our privacy policy). In fact, we protect all your data access with high-grade encryption. Encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorized people to view information traveling between computers.

Why don’t you offer your software package for download?

The choice to develop Yardbook as a cloud-based application was made by Yardbook’s developers for many reasons. Not needing to download or install any software was a huge factor. Updates are deployed automatically, and given the frequency with which we add new features (based largely on user feedback) this approach saves our customers much time and hassle. Many applications are going this direction, including Quickbooks as one example. Users do need a browser to connect to Yardbook – and for those who want to use it on the go, a mobile app is penned to start development at the end of the year


What about an app?

A mobile app is a popular request from our users.
Currently, Yardbook has an Android app. It also works inside a mobile browser. In fact, many of our pages are smart enough to detect a mobile environment, and automatically change the page layout to better support a smaller screen. Click here for more information.
