I always hated when someone named their company after themselves. So I like the change but never give yourself a long name.

i agree change the name from your own name but do yourself a favor and take the time and come up with something alittle more original, i mean i think their is 20 " cutting edge" lawn care companies in every town!

what exactly do you do...if its only mowing then stick with the mowing name. if you go beyond just mowing and do landscape work, then go for that name. your business name should explain who and what you do. i like what frontier-lawn recommended, Cutting Edge Landscape & Turf Management :drinkup:

Well, I would say that it probably comes down to what your name actually is. . . Mike's Lawn Care may sound a little generic (lotta Mikes in the world) same with Bill's or Bob's or Andy's. . .etc. But what if your first name was Jet, or Tristan, or Mateo, or something unusual like that. . . it might work. (oh the jokes that will be made from that paragraph) :rolleyes:

Personally, I like Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscape better.

Nothing like inclusive inductive reasoning lol.

Sorry - couldn't resist

All I said was that "Cutting Edge" was better than "Mike's". . .

I think most would agree.

i like the 2nd option better, but as said it is overused and quite common. you ought to check and see if it is even available in your area.

Cutting edge is better than Mike's lawn.

But there is probably a few other "cutting edge" out there.

Do you even landscape? Or do you just think lawn and landscape sounds cooler? There's your answer, most likely stick to lawncare.

I do landscape. I usually mulch, plant flowers, and maybe start hardscaping a little bit next summer. Iíve checked the phone books and researched it online and it looks like no one has the name in the area so I think I might change it after all be for I letter the trailer and make up shirts...etc. Thanks for the responses. Keep em coming if you have other names.Do you even landscape? Or do you just think lawn and landscape sounds cooler? There's your answer, most likely stick to lawncare.

Sorry but mulching and planting flowers is not Landscaping. That would be maint. I'm sorry, I am not trying to be rude but I see so many grass cutters that put landscaping in their name but have no clue on how to landscape.
