Rates, Time Of Year They Start, Laws I May Not Know In My State, Places To Buy Products I May Not Know Of, Businesses That May Be Coming Available And Other Things I May Not Have Thought Of Yet. Nosey!!:dancing: JUST KIDDING THAT INQUIRY WAS FINE, I KNOW YOU ARE TRYING TO HELP OR GET INFO FOR YOURSELF.

I am up around Baltimore area, so you can probably charge more down your way. I think housing is higher down there right? As for licensing, I know you need one to do pesticides, not sure about fertilizers. I do neither. Check w MD dept agriculture, or your local ag coop U or MD.

I mean U of MD. and I think it's agricultural extension service. should be listed in your local phone book. I believe every county has one. They probably know alot of that stuff.

I HAVE ONLY BEEN IS BUSINESS FOR 1 YEAR NOW. I AM STARTING TO GROW HOSE NOW SINCE I DECIDED TO GET SERIOUS. I PICKED UP MY FIRST COMMERICIAL CONTRACT ON 01-26-07 AND I MAY BE ON TRACK TO GET A SECOND ONE HERE REAL SOON. ON YESTERDAY I MADE A CONTACT AT LESCO; A GUY THAT HAS BEEN IN THE LANDSCAPING BUSINESS FOR 25 YEARS. HE DOES A LOT OF INSTALLS IN WALDORF AND SAYS HE GETS CALL BACKS TO MOW THOSE. HE TOOK MY CARD AND STATED THAT HE WOULD BE SENDING SOME OF THESE TO ME. SO THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN TRULY SAY IS PRAISE GOD FOR PUTTING YOU IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. IT IS STARTING TO LOOK GOOD AT THIS POINT BUT I STILL HAVE A LITTLE FEAR, WHICH IS GOOD. THANKS FOR ASKING:dancing:
