Northern Property Services sounds good to me. My accountant set me up with an S Corp because that was my best option. My advice would be to talk to an accountant to see what your best option is.

How about "Norther Exposure" after the TV show? I always like that name!
definitely LLC!

Let me know if you need any help with any aspect of the business...I'll be glad to help!

Northern Exposure is really good.

Make sure that you check availability in your state. Does someone have the same name or a similar one? If so, you may have legal trouble in the future.

Northern Lawn Services, DBA, do a search and the DBA vs LLC is a popular question,

What about Northern Green

Northern Property Services sounds best to me. Also make sure to get at least an LLC, you should be taxed the same as a DBA but it will offer you much more protection.
