    Hello: I am in a family owned business that has always concentrated mostly on lawn maintenance and some installation. I would like to expand our services into the fertilization/pesticide/herbicide area. Can someone suggest where I could learn how to get certified or learn how to properly provide this service(s). I realize I will need to get licensed, but I need to educate myself first. I live in the Atlanta area and wondered if a there is a technical school here or if achieving this online is feasible. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Regards, Southernlawn

    Will the state be able to let me know where I can be educated on weed identification, herbicides to use, fertilization rates, herbicide rate, types of pests, types of lawn diseases?
