    I already cut commercial and residential properties,and run a landscaping crew, but the fertilizing company we've been using has really went down hill! I want to start fertilizing my own accounts now, any tips on how to get started, pricing, etc?

    Find out what you need to apply pesticides in your area/state first, i.e., license, insurance, permit, etc. Then you can start to worry about pricing and the other aspects of Lawn Care.

    KLM hit it on the head. You will need to talk to your dept of agriculture and then they will hook you up with registration materials. After you send those back, they will send you a huge book to study and then you will need to make an appointment to take the test which if you pass will make you certified. Keep in mind that adding this service will add a good bit to your insurance. The procees i described is how it was explained to me in OH.
