    Howdy everyone,

    Hope everyone had a great season so far. We've been doing good. As fall is coming up around corner and then it will be winter before we know it.

    So my questions today is what we can do during winter months ( we are open to and would like to expand our services into these months ).

    Snow plowing:

    - How much do you cost per feet/inches?
    - Best brand plow ( Boss, Myers, etc )
    - Best time to start plowing? ( during snow, after snow etc )

    Holidays decorations:

    - How much and how do you figure bid cost on this?
    - Per feet or per hour?

    More information or feedback etc on this will be great. It will answer to our question if its worth our time and money upfront to invest in expanding our company and add services for winter or just stick with 3 seasons.

    Thanks in advance!

    Go to the sister site Plowsite. Register there, you can use same screen name as here and same password.

    Better response will be had there because not every landscaper does snow removal. Just as not every snow removal guy does landscaping.
