Is that your current logo in your avatar? If it is, then I wouldn't change it.
A logo is about brand recognition. You will never see McDonalds changing their logo.

However, if you don't currently have a logo, and out of the three pictured above, I would pick logo #2.

this is my 1st official year in business and the logo in the avatar is what i used at the beginning of the year...then i changed it (dont ask why..i guess i got bored of it)...now i want something that looks professional and is permanent

after i graduate college i really want to start expanding..right now i have 28 accounts and im a little low key. the only advertisment i have done is putting up cards in the local bank and in the senior citizen center so not many people would recognize the logo anyway, so im willing to take a risk now to prepare for the future

here is what i think of the logos

1:
i like it, it looks professional..but i think it is too tall and would make it difficult to put on advertisments and signs

2:
i like it, it pops...cant really think of anything wrong with it. it looks professional. its nice and tight like someone said and everything is in one place, and i thnk the colors go well together. the yellow creats warmth like the sun and the deep green represents a beautiful healthy lawn

3.
i really like the grass on top, but i think it is a little too plain. it doesnt pop much as much as the #2

i like them all a lot but i am partial to number 2, but this is a big decision, so i just want to see what the pros think...so far it looks like #2 is the best so far

number two

Number 2 is by far the best. As you mentioned the other 2 are just a little too plain. Number two looks professional and the colors and unclutteredness (real word?) of it make it stick in your head well.

Wow, I must be the odd ball here. #2 was the one I didn't like!

1. Looks good, I like it. It is easy to read and the wording will be readable from more then a few feet away on your trailer or truck

2. Hard to distinguish the wording. White on yellow background does not "pop" out and will be hard to read from more then say 10 ft away on a tailgate.

3. I like this one also, maybe not as much as number 1 though. It is kinda plain. But it is very modern and simple, that can be good or bad. Are you going after the "organic and green" market?

I am guessing that you paid a company x dollars to make you some examples. See if they will make you 3 more for free. Just to give yourself a better selection. Not saying these wont work, but it's always nice to have choices.
