Sorry I am sure this topic has been brought up many times, but I just can't seem to find the answer. When first starting out in FL, so start a lawn care business with basic cut,edge,trim,blow, and some light tree trimming how does one become licensed? I went on the FL dbpr website, and it seems there is no formal state license, so how are guys claiming to be licensed and insured? can you say your licensed because you pay the county and city business tax? And can you apply fert. without a license? I see there is a license for pesticide treatment? Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.
