    is it a good idea to just call ohio dept of agriculture and ask what license you need to operate business,and tell them what you plan on offering?

    lawn maintenance (fert,pest,but on a small scale...not set up as step plans i mean)........landscape installs.........no need for vendors iicense in this business being in the service industry,unless you want to be tax exempt,and pass the tax to customers ,correct?

    you will need a service vendors license as you are REQUIRED to collect sales tax on everything you plan to do. second you will need a pestacide license to put down any chemicals even on a small scale pm me your phone # and ill help you out with were to go for everything.
