    I have a customer that need lawn treatment for weeds and dead spots in the grass. What are some chemical or organic options to kill the weeds and treat the whole lawn. Is it difficult to apply? I mostly just mow lawn, I don't have experience with applicators.

    Sub it out to someone who has a liscense and knows what they are doing.

    Yes, a certified applicator can. I'd suggest doing what you have to do to become legal and certified, but in the meantime, don't break the law doing something you aren't qualified to do. Find an independent certified applicator, and sub it out.

    without a doubt, sub it out. :)

    I talked to a customer today about having a bunch of weeds sprayed around the house. I asked him (capable of doing it himself) if he would do it as I'm not licensed to spray on other properties but my own. He said he'd take care of it. Done deal....:cool2:
