    Get in touch with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture & Forestry. Baton Rouge area code 225-555-1212.

    If you're going to do landscaping or have the word "landscaping" in your business name or advertising, you'll need a Landscape Contractor License.

    Send 'em your money, they'll send you a book to study. Then pay your money to take the test. The same goes for Irrigation.

    There's also a pesticide license if you want to apply chemicals.

    hope this helps...

    if you are not an adult let the grownups handle the pesticide apps. if you aint 18 then you cant be held liable .i dont hink depends on where you are i guess. at any rate let adults do it.
