    Can anyone tell me if in Pennsylvania you need to be certified to put the fertilizer down IF the homeowner already has the fertilizer ? I guess my question is can I charge a labor fee to put the fert. down without needing to have the state certification to buy and apply ?

    No, you don't need an applicators license to apply fert only in Pa. That said, once you accept payment for a service, you also accept the liability if something goes wrong. If you're serious about being in business, get a license and good insurance.
