Any hardscaping at all in sparta requires a zoning permit.

I would like it if someone actually enforced it, because the state makes these laws but does nothing to enforce them. All NJ cares about is if you sent them the check every year, if they keep working the way they are right now the last thing I want is another license fee because nothing will be done.

Yep, and most of the other townships around as well. The new guy they hired a few years ago was a real ball buster when he started. He was a retired cop. I remember one day he walked right up on the job started taking pics and measuring heights on a wall we had finished and were laying sod around. He started ranting and raving about fines and this and that. He thought he had his first big bust. Well too bad for him we had the permit and after an hour of BS and phone calls to verify that it wasnt fake we were back at work and he had to walk away with his head down. He eventually started upsetting contractors for wasting time and must have got in trouble cause he is much more mellow now. Besides I'm pretty sure he was bending the rules of what he could do.

sounds like you think govt regulation will help sell your company/services. You may want to underbid slightly on one or two jobs to get your foot in the door with 10 others through word of mouth advertising. "The Jones' next door have a great hardscaping set up..."

Landscape contractor licensing is being proposed in NJ. Go to the NJLCA website to let them know how you feel about it.

talked to a state trooper buddy of mine, the new thing in the next few months is they are going to start making all the diesel pickups and smaller mason dumps get the diesel emissions testing done, that'll be another 150 a year in their pockets!!!!!
