I live in Maryland and I don't have a home improvement license yet, which you need to basically any work. I plan on taking the test very soon. I guess my question is, what are your thoughts on performing work at houses without the license? I won't do any work on the house itself but just landscaping and mowing until I get the license. I want to start early enough so I can get contracts for the season but I also want to do things the right way. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?
