It seems a little gimmicky to me. Remember image is everything.

you need something that jumps out and holds on. when customers look down a page of names your need to jump! mine worked well come up with a good one:clapping:

My companies name is The Lawn Enforcers. I used this name due to the fact that I am prior law enforcement. It is a name that stands out from the others. It has really worked well for me. We have a lot of seasonal people down here and they feel a sense of security knowing that my company is on their property. I think being creative is important, but I agree 2 Clowns may be a stretch.

I have a wrap on my trailer. I will post some pics here shortly. I use it in all my advertising. Phone book, newspaper, door hangers, etc.. I use the slogan "Responding to all your lawn care needs". I see your from North Carolina. Where abouts? I just sold my cabin in Murphy, NC which is in the corner of N.C, GA & TN. I sure do miss it.

Good name - go with it. Some sort of badge logo would be good. Play on the "Keeping the Peace" and not the strong arm of the Law approach.

Something non-threatening so avoid use of Tactical Ops with MP5's or K-9 with bared teeth. Perhaps a partially eaten doughnut in the logo. :laugh:

There is a cop in my area with that same business name. He has a badge incorporated into Law'n area on all his trucks.

My name is Kevin and I went with Kevlawn. It seemed every little catchy name I came up with was taken. Or maybe I wasn't that creative.

We have that around us...also lawn and order, Lawn patrol, Lawn doctor, you get the point.

If you want to be small and part time, use your name. Dave Thomas Lawn care. Using whatever your name is. If you go big or incorporate, you can always change it to DTC Outdoors, DTC enviromental, or DTC lawns....you get the point.

Try your state business license registry. Use the key words to search for Co.'s It worked for my state.

Idaho as an example: http://www.accessidaho.org/public/sos/corp/search.html

enter "prestige lawn" in the search - I was surprised to see 4 registered business with nearly the same name.
