RI law is one of the reasons I took the organic cost. Basically, it is a license to kill. The reason you need to take the course is so you can legal kill pests and weeds with chemicals for money. In my mind the down side you have to do much of the same thing year after year.
Going organic takes the opposite approach it is the knowledge to produce life. The basic knowledge and a lite certification cost you $80 to get full certified is $400. You don't need to spend the $400 unless you really want to go down the municipality large commercial route.
Organics works to make a healthy soil coupled with good cutting technics for a great lawn, if done right there are just as many ways to garner extra money out of a customer for services provided, rather than dumping and breathing in chemicals all over the place.
