Thanks git er done. I guess I wasn't to clear. The search site was good, but I'm wondering about local permits. I think a license is only required if you put down chemicals the the homeowner can't buy domesticly? In other words,could I apply weed & feed that can be purchased @ home depot like Scotts?

Generally, if you're applying ANY pesticide (including weed n feed) you need a license from the state. Only licensed individuals can *purchase* Restricted Use pesticides, but you must have a license if you're *applying* anything. Check with your state agency for details, however.

Hope this helps!
