When I was in the business full time my company designed, installed and maintained landscapes. Not really that hard and always something to do. Having a year round growing climate helps as well.

You're not doing it right.

mowing grass = maid service
landscaping = construction company

I understand your premise hear but it is far from the truth, for the simple fact in many states you are not required to have a licence to landscape but in most states if not all you are required to be licenced to construct.

I don't for a few reasons, I value the anonymity, I don't want the potential hassles, I got a business that has been around longer than dirt is old, you or anyone else knowing my business has no value to me, I am often politically incorrect, I often tell it like it is that can on occasion come across as less than professional and the big one is I don't want my company's clientele discovering and reading what I post for the reasons above. My business experience and common sense tells me that would be a bad thing. Another primary reason is lawnsite is filled with wack jobs.... Other's may feel otherwise and well that's fine.....

Being afraid of, and retraining to announce a name that holds no value to a thread are very different. The name doesn't matter, the same point is made. Just like when people say my dealer, and not Jensen and Pillegard, The whole name holds no value in the thread.

Plus, its an open internet forum. If some one happened to prove some one wrong, or have some witty remarks, that could get them a bad Angie's list review, gay craigslist add or some other Bogus childish situation. I prefer to prevent the possibility all together.

I'm afraid of Taco Bell and coffee in the same day when its 106 degrees out side

I refrain from speaking about diarrhea with my clients.
