    I have a strictly lawn maintenance company(lawn service, mulch installation, tree trimming, ect) with a decent amout of clients. Is it doable to sub-contract the bigger jobs (patios, walks, driveways, ect) to make a little cash on the side? Any details on this would be appreciated.

    If thats' all you do, and you don't have any time for anything else, why can't you sub-out them jobs? I would try to be bonded though when doing this.

    I would suggest that you either learn how to do them. Or get some connections with some contractors and get like a referral fee. Do you really want to be responsible for a job that you don't know how to do? Do you really want to float the money on a $6,000 project? I wouldn't ever subcontract anything that costs more than what I actually do.
