z71tiger, it will help you. We have our certifications. The more you see and hear the information, the more it it will sink in. One word of advice before taking the contractor test is to learn your mulch calculations. You will see several questions pertaining to this topic. You may pass on attempt #1 or it may take you a bit. Whatever you do, don't give up. Certification and licensing add credibility to your operation. This will allow to achieve rates conducive to where they should be, not where they are currently.

Good luck.

I know people with pre-Katrina contractors licenses that do shotty work. I think part of your licensing should be on-job evaluation - IMO.
NewOrleans21, welcome to the site. Man, I tell you, I couldn't agree with you more---Crap work at its finest can be witnessed all over the place. I really wish that clients/customers would do their their diligence before hiring a contractor. It would certainly cut out the BS.

As a side note, if you need an irrigation or professional lighting contractor that knows the craft, we can help you.

Take care and good luck in 2013.

I had about 30 lawns but now I will have to cut them in half to about 17 lawns. I love cutting lawns so I just cant let it all go!!! Its easy money plus it got me where im at now in life. I wish I can hang with the big boys but im back in the little league....lol
