    i am currently in a subcontract setup with a larger landscape co. in my area. so far it has worked out great and this yr i expanded to run 2 crews. i am now looking to go further under this setup but wonder about what other experiences people have had in this setup. i am thinking about the structure you had with the contractor and what your role as the sub became in your business as you grew larger. also did they reduce the agreed %age you pd them yearly or monthly as you took on more business. thanks for all your input
