do i need to be bonded to get a business liscense?

I have been doing small side jobs such as mowing and pruning for awhile now and have begun to seriously examine going into business for myself. My friend and I have also considered a partnership.

I do not have much start up money or equipment. My main concern is with being legit as I build up clientele and re-invest some of my profit into the operation. After some research, I seem to be at an impasse. It appears that, in Washington state at least, in order to apply for and recieve a business liscense for landscaping, I am required to have a $6,000 bond.

Does anyone know if, in fact, this is true? If so, is there any legal way around it?

As Texas I think the only way you need a bond is if the cut for req. it.
$6,000 bond is not that much, here I have $1,000,000 and I only pay $1500 yrly...Not much help sorry
