Not engineering, but to become licenses yes there is some schooling. You need to do an apprenticeship which is mostly in the workplace hands on experience. And it's paid.

What I do on the side is like mulch, planting stuff, making flower beds, but mainly mowing so nothing risky... The actual company well we do boulder walls, retaining walls, patios, porches, the stuff I do, trimming, sod (it sucks!), etc. but some of that stuff can be risky in the sense if we break anything we will get sued... This is a pic of the guys boat at the one house
