Just wondering if anyone knows about licensing in Texas? Thanks guys..
For what? Mowing? No, just buy a mower and let people know what you are doing, friends, neighbors, etc..
Thats what I've always thought, but just wanted to ask around. Thanks!!
make sure to get insurance, and it doesn't hurt to get bonded...its like 10.00 and it's Great for advertisement....
Im working on insurance now but I am not familiar with bonding. What is that exactly?
it just protects the customer if you or one of your employees steal something from them.
To B Honest, I have NEVER had this issue, But I found that Just being bonded makes me a ton of money. It gives the customer that warm fuzzy feeling,
It shows you are protecting them, and like early stated.... it's GREAT for ad's....

there is NO licensing in Texas, there talking about doing it but havent yet.
BUT if you spray roundup or anything else you will need a license
Be sure to keep monies seprate and from time to time deposit CASH into your Business account
The primary "license" for only mow and go's in Texas is to register with the State Comptroller's Office.
Should your business handle nursery plants I would recommend getting your Nursery Floral Certificate as well. This certificate is mandatory once you obtain your TDA Turf and Ornamental license.
And don't forget your Texas Irrigator's License for selling, repairing, installing and auditing irrigation systems here in Texas.
As a last note, you need to check with your county to determine the requirements for registering your business, if any.
