    Hello: I am in a family owned business that has always concentrated mostly on lawn maintenance and some installation. I would like to expand our services into the fertilization/pesticide/herbicide area. Can someone suggest where I could learn how to get certified or learn how to properly provide this service(s). I realize I will need to get licensed, but I need to educate myself first. I live in the Atlanta area and wondered if a there is a technical school here or if achieving this online is feasible. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Regards, Southernlawn

    Will the state be able to let me know where I can be educated on weed identification, herbicides to use, fertilization rates, herbicide rate, types of pests, types of lawn diseases?
  4. they can probably tell you about some lawn and turf associations in your state.
