    I do lawn and landscape during the summer and want to start plowin in the winter. Im just trying to find out what it is i will need to get off the ground. ive already got an F-350, just need the plow, what kind of plow should i get? I know thats all based off of what kind of accounts you have. i plan on doing both res. and commercial. Is there a certain type of insurance i need for plowing? Ive already got insurance on the lawn n scape business. would that all fall in the same category? It doesnt snow but maybe 5 times a year here so i want to have booked nights so i can actually pay off the plow and other equipment. What about salt? should i offer that too? How would i go about getting commercial accounts? that is what i would preffer. more money...and only one person to deal with (usually one person). same as in the lawn n scape industry. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone here was willing to take the time to answer my million questions.
