Hey guys,

I would like some opinions on my logo. Main questions are...

Do you like it.

Should I keep the butterfly? The butterfly was added to draw attention and make people see the rest of the logo, but I'm worried it may be a little cartoonish. It would have to be dumbed down a little to embroider on shirts, but this is what I would look to put on the truck and enclosed trailer, brochures, ect. I was not sure how to upload a PDF so here is a link to the attachment in my email.

Unfortunately, it appears you need to have a google account to view your logo.
Of which I do not, so I couldn't say.

Ok, I tried that and yes it did work. Only problem was, it was a business card, not a logo. Never saw a butterfly.

Wow, here is another try, this should work. I deleted the previous post.

I'm better at taking care of lawns that I am at uploading files, I swear!

1) Yes, that did work.

2) Yes, the butterfly does look a tad cartoonish.

3) No, I can't say that I like it. I don't DISLIKE it, but it looks pretty generic.
You need some color (which you tried with the butterfly) the rest is green and flat. Also, If it were my logo, I wouldn't want a question on it. "Is your lawn a lush green lawn".
My logo would make a statement about what I do.
Do you fert & squirt?
Strictly maintnenance?
Irrigation?

Leaves too many questions more than answers.
I'm not trying to insult you, I'm just giving you my opinion.

Thanks,

All opinions are appreciated, good and bad. I tried to keep it simple so it would be memorable and work for embroidery and vinyl for our trucks and trailers, but mabye it is a little to simple.

Please keep the comments coming guys.

I like the lower one. The only problem I see is if you get two big like I am sure you hope to do someday, the largest fertilizer company usus a orang butterfly in their logo

What company are you talking about? The biggest 3 around here are TGL, Scotts, and Lawn Doctor, and none of them have a butterfly.

I have decided on the blue actually though, because research shows that customers respond better to blue. I'm just not sure if I could cut the butterfly and just leave the grass plant, or leave the butterfly.

Drop the butterfly. I would not make the tag line part of your logo. You can have a tag line, but just would not want it with your logo. You may want to change it someday....or today...lol.

I actually like it fairly well.

If I were you though, I'd let the upper line extend all the way through, and not break up for the "R" ( you might have to move it down some). I'd drop the slogan too if I were you, maybe you could make two logos, one for small stuff like business cards, shirts, invoices, etc. and one with the slogan below for use on trucks, trailers, etc. I don't really like the style of the "R" in "Green" either, I'd play around with the fonts a little if I were you. I'd also drop that bottom line, even if you leave the slogan there. I'd also play around with the text color maybe do "lush" in the light green and "Green Lawn" in the dark green. And that butterfly almost looks as the blade of grass is part of it's body and not that it's sitting on the blade of grass.

Overall I really like it though. The many details I mentioned are quite small, but I think this logo has good potential :)
