So, I've got the logo (see my pic) but need to come up with a slogan or at least something a little funny to put on some company shirt. I always thought those 7up shirts that said "make 7" in front and "up yours" on the back were hilarious.

Company name is Pushing Up Daisies. I got the idea because there was an old hearse for sale around here and I thought if I painted it yellow and modified the back, it would be different enough to be eye catching. Came up with the company name shortly after. Name stuck, hearse never happened.

So I'm looking for a phrase to use and put on the front of my company t-shirts. I'm putting the logo on the back.

Give me your ideas.

Here are some I've thought of:

"Warning......I'm on edge"

"Borrow our Green Thumb"

"Green hands and a warm heart"

"Check out my farmer tan"

(I would never use this, but......"Best blow & trim in town," "Bush Overgrown?"could go on and on.....:nono:)

What ideas do you guys have?

Just thinking out loud:

"The Jones' don't stand a chance"

"Get the dirt on us anytime"

"Your lawns just jealous"

"Cure for the common lawn"

"Let us sweat the small stuff"

"Weeds tremble before me"

'Your lawn is hitting on me again"

You do not need a catchy slogan. Customers do not care about "funny" slogans. They care about quality, professionalism, and price.

You are absolutley right, my customers won't keep me because I add a catchy slogan. Potential customers may, however, remember my business better. Can't hurt, can it?

Go with "Lawn Care To Die For." Not only is it catchy, it's the only decent one listed in this thread. Some of others are downright creepy...in the sexual predator kind of way.

personally, I don't think the word lawn & die should even be in the same sentence....

I think the problem starts with "Pushing up daisies".... sorry.... just my opinion though... and I know, my opinion doesn't matter.

I'd stay away from the word shady too....shady could translate to 'crook', crook translates to 'thief'.....

"Pushing up daisies" is memorable enough, in a weird way..... but def. memorable... so I'll have to agree, you really don't need a slogan.

I like the ...to die for. tagline. I think it is a good idea to have a catchy slogan, especially with the name of your company, in particular. It makes it really catchy and memorable. Go for it!

You do not need a catchy slogan. Customers do not care about "funny" slogans. They care about quality, professionalism, and price.

Slogans help potential customers remember a certain company. The person may not remember the name of the company off the top of their head but they will remember the catchy or funny slogan which helps them remember the name. Anything that helps your company get attention will be good.

Imo this is the best and most clever slogan anyone has come up with. It's really catchy and i'll be honest some of the other ones were really creepy.

Btw, I don't know how to quote someone if you didn't notice.

I really am seriously considering "great in beds" only concerned that I may offend in the conservative state I'm in. I would only use it on the shirts. I would be more coservative in truck magnets or biz cards.

JacksonLawns

though that made me smile and I am sure it would make some others smile or laugh I think the larger number of people would see it as not being very professional and not see you as someone who takes things very serious....on the other hand you did ask for something edgy, so maybe that is what you are looking for.

Here is a mock up, added the flower hoping it might "tone it down".

I like it. Go for it. The flower tones it down enough to make it something worth using.

So held off on the shirts a bit but thought of another idea. I am still fine tuning the wording, something like:

Get some mighty fine grass

or

Get some nice piece of grass
