    I have been considering offering my customers the option of me fertilizing their lawns. What do I need to do this? I have heard you guys saying you need special liscenses etc. What do I need? Who can I call in my city to find out?

    You will need a custom applicator license . contact your dep of agriculture to take your test. Make sure you study its a hard one and then make sure your insurance covers the use of pesticides
