I performed a search for information regarding Oregon, but got limited responses. I am new to the site (first post) however I have been browsing for a while now. I am in the process of gathering information in consideration of starting a small (solo)maintenance business.

From checking with the state dept of ag website I am still unclear on the exact guidelines in reference to over the counter product use on customer premises. Legally, I know I can fertilize, but....

1) can I weed and feed? OTC fert w/pre-m?, etc.
2) use organic alternatives for weed control (i.e. vinegar, etc.)?
3) If the above two are prohibited can I work with a licensed operator on my premises as a sub? or independent contractor in unison?

Any assistance would be very helpful

Just came across this thread. Yes, you can do those things under the terms of maintenance. For more information on what is considered as "maintenance" and what goes beyond it visit the Landscape Contractors Board website and read this:
