New bus. name..Your Opinion please

Lawnworks & More...or
Lawnworks Plus

Trying to stay away from just 'lawn service' or 'landscape' phrases since most of my work will be maintenance with a small amount of planting. Will offer other services such as exterior Xmas decorating, driveway sealing, etc (only as time permits)

Be blunt...like or no-like the possible names?

Thanks much...Gary in Central PA

I used Mowing Service with my name, I wish now I wouldnt have I feel that people think all that is provided is mowing , to be honest when I first started I thought that is all we would do, but as years have gone on we find the add on services are what we like to sell in.

Brian...

Your comments are why the 'and more' might work for me. When I've tested this name on friends and potential clients in almost each case they asked me..what does the 'and more' include? In my rookie (but I'm no pup) opinion getting someone to ask you a question about your services is a good thing. Better money is in services other than cutting grass. thanks again..gary

Honestly, there is nothing wrong with it. It does not thrill me but it should work. I would fear that is leans more towards grass cutting. I was leaning towards Outer Home Management eariler from my name but wanted to stick more on the green side.

Just one thought..

I guess its really up to you! You could use one name and then maybe a phrase underneath, I belive that is what I am going to start doing.
