    Call your state landscape contractor's board. But I would be surprised if you need to be licensed or certified to mow lawns. Most states don't require anything for lawn care.

    In Michigan, you need a license only for certain municipalities. Just a simple form, plus insurance certificate and you're good to go. That's for mowing.<p>For pesticide applications, you need a personal certification for 2 years. After that you can file to get your business licensed through the Michigan Dept. of Agriculture.<br>
