Hi everyone,
I've been asked if I'm liscensed to preform hardscape work and said "No but I'm not sure you need a liscense." Am I correct?

P.S. I'm in Canada if that has any effect on my statement.

Hold on, last year I was sure you didn't need a license to spray weeds. I even phoned the city, they told me anything you can buy at home depot, you can spray commercially without a license. HOWEVER, I bought the books to become certified ($150) and in there it says you need to be licensed. So who knows about this stuff when even the government can't give you a straight answer.

You better watch it or you'll see your work being criticized by Mike Holmes as he tears it down, LOL.
