Hello Gint,

There is no specific Florida License to do landscaping. We recommend contacting your County to engage in that scope of work or do paver installation under a Florida General Contractor License. You can obtain a Florida Irrigation Contractor License for irrigation installation tasks. Below, we will provide you with two links with more information on each license:
