Ideas on biz name

Looking to start this spring. my last name is Toman and most of my friends call me that. I was thinking Toman Lawn Care...with the initials being TLC I thought I could probably play around with that as a motto. Comments? thanks

Your last name and lawn service is fine, but i would not use just the initials at first. Make sure it is in your company name that you are a Lawn service, so people know what ya offer!

Thats a great name! My biz name is Trent's Lawn Care so I have the TLC slogan too. Depending on who you offer service for, (residential, as you stated) your name can be a larger difference than many think. Since your residential, your name gives a personal touch and makes neighborhood clients feel like they are hiring a personal lawn care professional, not the Wal-Mart brand lawn guy. Remember to keep it professional, too. If you decide to go with a funny slogan, while it may be catchy, some people may not take you seriously if its stupid enough. If you have big dreams of taking over the lawn care world, then a less personal name is better. Just make sure to pick the name you really want and stick with it.
