  • based on Income Account, like "Landscape Maintenance & Repair", where you can further divide your Service List into Landscape Maintenance and Landscape Repair
  • as a breakdown your services profitability: High Profitability, Medium Profitability, Low Profitability
  • based on resource requirements: Labor Only, Labor and Materials, Materials, Materials and Equipment
