    If you're talking about a building contractor's license, why ask on this forum?

    This is the 3rd day in a row that you have ask a question that is so general that it can't be answered. BUT most all State's control licensing issues so check OH's state website.

    It will be different from state to state. In this state you would be illegal if you replaced a sprinkler head at one of your accounts, thus the reason to be licensed. Don't know about Ohio...

    Actually Critical that is not true. The State of Oregon alows you to fix up to 3 sprinkler heads if damage was caused by you, the operator. Now for actually fixing a system that is a totaly different subject.

    Yep, you're right sildoc. I got my license so I wouldn't have to worry about these things, such as accidentally replacing four heads instead of three, or accidentally replacing the funny pipe, which perhaps would be considered irrigation work instead of maintenance.

    I kinda wonder what other states allow as far as maintenance goes before you cross the line...

    No such thing as a landscape contractors license in Washington state. All you need is a business license and your good to go. I'm on the state line w/ Oregon and should I ever decide to take work in Portland then I would, of course, need an Oregon Landscape Contractors License.
