Howdy fellers,
Boy do I need help. I have a LCO and I am expanding into landscaping also. My state requires certification and license for landscaping. I need to get info to study for this. I have gone to a local college horticulture department for help. They say enroll and we'll teach you. I went to our local state ag extension office and they gave me some various brochures and said contact the state ag dept. I called them and requested info and what I got was just a bunch of random information in no kind of order. Any thoughts about where I should go next? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks a million.

Mike

What state are you in?

Are you sure they require certification/licensing to do landscaping?

Many states require that for pesticide application, but to plant a shrub?

I have heard of needing a permit to build a retaining wall. And I know that people can get certified to do erosion control.

There are tons and tons of books. Go to a large bookstore and check it out. But many are specialized - like just about gardening or perenniels or shrubs or trees or hardscaping, etc. etc.
