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?

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.

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.
