Landscaping/Hardscaping Liscense

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?
Thanks.

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

Here in Virginia (USA) you need a license to put a shovel into the ground.

SWEET. I looked on Landscape Ontario website and saw something but it just looked like a money grab.

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.
