In Nj also you are required to have a nj home improvement contractors license to put down seed and even mulch. Don't even attempt to use weed killers without a pest license the DEP doesn't play

You're kidding right? You have to have a contractor's license
to lay down seed and they won't let you pump your own gas either? :dizzy:

I would recommend checking into the requirements for such a license,
I'm sure the regulations vary from state to state but just for example
in some states any contract over a thousand dollars requires one.

That having been said, I don't think you'd need a contractor's license for dropping an 80 dollar bag of seed thou.

Got to a nursey.

And if you need a license to put seed or mulch down I suggest you move out of that state.

TS, Lawns ETC. LIVES in NJ. I'm sure he knows whether a contractor's license is required to put seed down. Yeah it's stupid to require that but according to him, it is.
