changing company name?

Ive been in business in Canada for 2 years, but feel my name is turning customers away!- Old Earth Gardening
I thought it was a good name when I first started but now I think its hindering progress!
OLD EARTH GARDENING whats your feedback??

What are thinking of changing it to? If you are going to change it I would think this would be a good time to do it in the first couple of years. If it was me yes I would change it.

I would.


If you are in fear of loosing buisness over the change maybe just change it a little? Old Earth Landscaping?

I see what you're saying about the name. How about something more positive that sort of keeps the name: "Good Earth Lawn and Landscaping" or something like that. Good luck!

Was thinking maybe Turf & Earth Gardening
This way my name suggests lawn care and landscaping.
We mainly focus on the maintenance side, and feel that people may not get that impression from the name- and they will call-Jims Mowing instead of me!!
Also after some research the name has some religious meanings- somewhere I dont want to go!!!
Thanks
