    I got put through to a commercial job that is looking to replace their current company. The woman who is in charge of getting this done is a friend of my fathers and she said that she will tell me what price they are paying currently for services, can't complain because the company who is doing it now is pretty good and has good prices. I can do the mowing, landscape upkeep, fertilizing and everything else, the only problem is that she was wondering if I do snowplowing. I told her that I didn't and I'm wondering what should I do. The lot is about three acres. Any suggestions or best way to handle this. Not a big problem, but thinking about subing out the plowing. Kentucky usually dosen't receive much snow at all.

    Subbing it out would be best. I would keep away from LCO's that plow. Look in the book for snow removal. A lot of home improvement and costruction guys do it for an off-season money maker. Plus, they won't try to underbid you out next year.
