A 3D map gives you the total surface area of the shrubs. Multiply that with recommended volume per unit area of the which is essential for accurately estimating the quantity of growth inhibitor that you'll need.
Mark Lucas, National Account Manager for Rainbow Ecoscience -manufacturer of Trimtect (one of the most popular shrub growth inhibitors) - recommends his customers to map their shrubs in 3D (it's like mapping the shrubs like a loaf of bread) using SiteRecon.

Having talked to hundreds of landscaping and lawn care companies, we have found out that eyeballing measurements leads to an error of at least 10%.
Consider the property on the right for example. The total surface area of shrubs on this site is 80,163.37 sq. ft.
We asked a couple of landscapers to eyeball it and they were off by ~ 8000 sq. ft
Trimtect costs ~ $177 per gallon for 3500 sq. ft. If your measurements are off by 8000 sq. ft. you would either have to:
By spending $40 to get 3D maps of shrubs from SiteRecon, you could save $400 that you would've spent by not estimating the shrub surface area accurately.

SiteRecon is an end-to-end, fully automated property measurement solution.
It is an online platform that measures the properties for you. You have the option to measure properties on your own or get them measured by the software.
It has a button - 'Get Measurements' - that creates orders to generate property measurements.
All you need to do is input the address, select the features to measure and press that button - SiteRecon pulls the property outline and high resolution aerial imagery; measures the property, checks for quality and delivers the data.
Result - fully automated property measurements.
You can measure standard features such as surface area of turf, beds, sidewalks, parking lots; length of soft edges and hard edges; count of trees and palm trees.
Depends on the size of the property, the number of features to be measured and the volume of order traffic. In case the system is not swamped with measurements (>95% of the time), you can expect to get back the measurements within:
Why does it take 30 minutes to do turf on a residential site? Because someone in our team always eyeballs the measurements extracted by the computer algorithm from aerial imagery to make sure that the data created is accurate.
SiteRecon users have verified the measurements through site visits and you can see their testimonial in the case study videos.
SiteRecon combines different sources of imagery to get the most complete picture of the site -
The above sources are combined with the latest high resolution aerial imagery of the site to extract measurements.
Yes. SiteRecon access the best-in-class aerial imagery from Nearmap to extract measurements. Nearmap imagery is collected over 700 cities within the last 1-9 months. The collection frequency depends on how big your city is. The bigger the city, higher the collection frequency.
Yes. It is possible to place bulk orders on SiteRecon. This how it works -
No. SiteRecon supports measurements for -
You can open SiteRecon app on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets/iPads. As long as you have an internet connection and a mobile in the field, you can access the maps.
SiteRecon enables you to share maps with accounts added to your organization's workspace. Everyone added to the workspace can view the maps and measurements
For people outside the team, you can share a map just like sharing a YouTube video - using a web page link.

Even if you have 50 properties to measure every year, those are 50 opportunities to have smarter pre-bid conversation with prospects, qualify leads faster, increase closing rates and optimally allocate sales reps’ time that you will miss out on if you continue with the old way of measuring properties.
You have only paid for the software subscription. You haven’t paid the real cost of using it - the cost of time invested into measuring properties and the missed opportunity to have smarter pre-bid conversation with prospects, qualify leads faster, increase closing rates and optimally allocate sales reps’ time that you will miss out on if you continue with the old way of measuring properties.
