I can understand that you need a Irrigations but what in the world do lawn care people mean when they state in the add that they are a license lawn care company?

Means they have a company license and pay taxes basically it means they are a real business

Basically stating that you are a state/county licensed company, you pay taxes on your income... not just the kid down the street cutting grass.

pesticide application for hire requires a license.
fertilizer does most places as well

Check with your state. An online class might not cover you. My state requires a class and (50 Hours) apprentice time. I hope they don't enforce that time because I have no Idea who to do it with or how to schedule it with my schedule. Search your states' webpage or call the town/county clerk they will steer you in the right direction. I have heard the fines are insane if you get caught. Good luck.

Hi Liberty, if you're landscaping in Jersey I'm pretty sure for a 3b(Turf) and 3a(Ornamental) license, you are required to have 40 hrs(not 50) of onsite training for each category. If you cannot obtain the training, you can take a full day class instead for each category. Then you need to pass the core test, as well as the test for the categories. Classes cost around $135 each. This is to be a licensed pesticide applicator. This is all administered through Rutgers, so I'd check their website.

Then on top of that, you need to pay the state of NJ to have your business licensed as a pesticide applicating business. And you're right, the fines are hefty if you are caught.
