The "often" part is going to cause problems for you. "mow regularly" may be a better option.

Sounded good 'till Locutus pointed that part out. Now I have to agree. "Often" might send the wrong message. Maybe "regularly".

1 to 10. . . .7. Pretty catchy. I like it.

Maybe if you mowed it right the first time you wouldnt have to keep doing it over. JUST KIDDING. Rate it a 5.

I give it a 3. A little too cheesy for my tastes. But not the worst I've seen on this site.

I think a 2 is being gererous.

I give it a 2. It could imply to customers for them to mow better and often, or it could apply to you.

I think it is great and very original. How about summarising your slogan and make it more catchy with something like:
A Cut Above The Rest
This will distinct you from your opposition and it says something about the quality work you do. And it goes with your bizz name, Mow Better, too.
With this I don't imply that your slogan is bad. I just think you need to put a pro "touch" to it.
We all mow better, regular and beautifully manicured lawns.
Good Luck

I won't rate it. I wouldn't use it either. There's enough stupid vocabulary going on in our society. The term "more better" isn't proper grammar. I know it's just a catch phrase but I think you can come up with something better.

You said you are tired of incorrect grammar. Well where do you see incorrect
grammar. If you would have read the original post you would have noticed it would have said MOW better instead of what you think More better. Next time becareful before you scrutinize. Granted I appreciate your response along with everyone elses. Thats why I posted it to get peoples advice. But in the future make sure you read more careful.
Thanks

Just like some of the people that responded to the thread, people will take the "mow" word and relate it to "more". More better, more often, more beautiful. Everybody knows the slang term "mo-money" from the stupid movie in which it became popular from. It will be related to your slogan, like it or not. So the improper grammar comes from the "more better" and equates to "mow better". More better is not proper grammar. If I have to explain any more about it would prove my point even more.

You wanted an opinion or "rating", you got it. If you can't handle constructive criticism, you are definitely in the wrong place.

If you took the time to spell check your response, you would have found two errors as did I. Not to mention the incorrect spelling of my name.

Contrary to public belief, not all landscapers are illiterate. Some can read and write.

No offense man, I just didn't like your slogan, sorry.

I give it a 2, doesn't sound professional at all. I also think " A cut above the rest", "the Cutting Edge", etc are all overused and have lost what little originality they had a long time ago. (and I mean no offense to anyone who uses them- whatever works for you) I don't think you have to have a "slogan" , we don't use one and never have and we have been successful.

I'm not impressed...btw, why do you need a slogan?

Its great if you are a mow an blow type of service doing small yards in the south side of chicago. If you want to target high end residentials, or commercials you might want to change it.

No need to start arguing about grammer, it is very obvious that it is a play on words...Thats the way it sounds anyway.

Remember you are trying to portray an image to the older age home owners, commercial property managers etc...

To me that slogan portrays a young inexperienced lco....

It just reminds me of something you'd see painted with a brush on a piece of white plywood....with the letters all different sizes.
I totally agree with Lbi about the "cut above the rest" and all that being widely overused. That's about as original as the "you grow-we mow it" concept that you see 3 or 4 lco's around here use.
Frankly, I always liked the "Business just keeps growing" slogan.

I give it a 1. It sounds more like a slogan for Viagra or something.

How about something along the lines of "Manicuring lawns to perfection"? I like that one because that's what I use?

Sorry, mine might not be good, but I'd suggest a modification to yours as well.

You dont HAVE to have a slogan to be a successful business, but it helps. It might be that little extra "umph" to get the customer to go along with you vs. your competition.
I think it sounds like you're targeting the uneducated class of people too. If thats what you want then i rate that as a 10, but if yo u want to target the nicer neighborhoods, then you should choose a slogan that implies growth of your company or your quality of work.

Sure it will..........If you have a good one that stands apart from the rest. A slogan that people will remember, an just hangs out in thier subconcious minds. The more they see you an a good slogan, the more they are likely to give you a call.

obtw, I'm not crazy about it. Then again, mine ain't real original, is it?

Good god a slogan is cheesey. Where are you from, one of those one horse southern towns? It does sound like a sixteen year old who is going into buisness. You will get customers by doing a good job for a good price not from a cheesey slogan.

How about "Come grow with us"

You can try what I did a while back. I held a little contest here on lawnsite and offered a $10 blockbuster gift certificate to the person that came up with the winning slogan. After a couple of days, I started a poll to get votes on the top 5 slogans. We came up with "Your Lawn Is Our Reputation"

I think you need something a bit more professional.
Keep trying it will come to you.
