Opinions on business name...

Hey folks. Here's my deal in a nutshell:

I'm running a small outdoor services business on the side. My wife and I are moving in about 6 months at which point my business will be launched in the new town and will be my full-time job.

I'm going to offer MANY outdoor services and I'd like my name to show that.

The services I plan to offer at first:
Lawn Maintenance- Grass Trimming, Edging, etc
Landscape Design/Construction/Maintenance
Waterscape Design and Installation
Fall Clean Up
Tree Clean Up
Property Clean Up- Brush Clearing, etc
Gutter Cleaning
Pressure Washing
Other Outdoor Jobs!

Right now I'm leaning towards "Knighten's Outdoor Services & Solutions"
(Knighten being my last name)

Some other ideas I've had are Knighten's Outdoor Services, Caleb's Outdoor Solutions & Services, Outdoor Services & Solutions.

Any feedback or ideas?

Also, I'd love some good AND bad feedback on my website - www.CalebKnighten.com


Thanks a ton for any ideas

If you are looking to do mainly mowing for your income I would have your name-lawn services. Most people will call and ask if you do certain things. Or advertise your various areas if expertise.

Thanks for the quick reply! Maintenance will be a large portion of my income, but not necessarily the main breadwinner. I'm thinking I'd rather not make people call to find out what I do. I feel that Outdoor Services begins to explain that I do more than just lawn maintenance

Caleb, consider choosing a name that emphasizes the highest level of service you will offer. It will be hard to sell an $8k water feature to a customer that thinks you do yard clean ups and pressure washing.

Also think about how people will actually say your name. Is anyone actually going to say, "XYZ outdoor services & solutions?"

Knighten or Knight is a great name. It is strong and trustworthy and gives you great options for a logo. If you use something simple after Knighten or Knight, your customers will be focused on (and remember) you.

I'm with this. Knight easier to say (syllables) and a ton of options for logo and slogan marketing
