I'm just starting out this year and I want to do it right.... First, do you have to have a pest.license to apply fertilizer and lime for your customers....Secondly, how offers the best rates for financing equipment with less than perfect credit scoring :blob2: :blob2: :confused:

Every state is different for fertilizer applications. Now Pesticides is a different story. Usually you have to be certified and the business has to have a license. Make sure that you do soil tests to find out whether or not a lime applicaiton is necessary.

Sheffield Financial is the best that I could find.

If you want a John Deere or Great Dane, JD has the best financing right now! In house...1% of balance the first year, 3% the second year. This is with a 9.9% apr. This keeps your payments very low for a couple of years until you get a good positive cash flow going. Payment on a $10,000 mower is only about $110.00/month year one.
