Landscape Applicator Certificate

Landscape - General

Manage insects, diseases and weeds of gardens, ornamental plantings and turf (for anyone applying pesticides on public land and for applicators providing pest management services to clients on private land).

Landscapers who grow their own ornamentals only need to be certified in the Landscape - General category. They do not need to have an Agricultural - General certificate also.
