    Hey guys,

    I would like some opinions on my logo. Main questions are...

    Do you like it.

    Should I keep the butterfly? The butterfly was added to draw attention and make people see the rest of the logo, but I'm worried it may be a little cartoonish. It would have to be dumbed down a little to embroider on shirts, but this is what I would look to put on the truck and enclosed trailer, brochures, ect. I was not sure how to upload a PDF so here is a link to the attachment in my email.

    Unfortunately, it appears you need to have a google account to view your logo.
    Of which I do not, so I couldn't say.

    Ok, I tried that and yes it did work. Only problem was, it was a business card, not a logo. Never saw a butterfly.

    Wow, here is another try, this should work. I deleted the previous post.

    I'm better at taking care of lawns that I am at uploading files, I swear!

    1) Yes, that did work.

    2) Yes, the butterfly does look a tad cartoonish.

    3) No, I can't say that I like it. I don't DISLIKE it, but it looks pretty generic.
    You need some color (which you tried with the butterfly) the rest is green and flat. Also, If it were my logo, I wouldn't want a question on it. "Is your lawn a lush green lawn".
    My logo would make a statement about what I do.
    Do you fert & squirt?
    Strictly maintnenance?
    Irrigation?

    Leaves too many questions more than answers.
    I'm not trying to insult you, I'm just giving you my opinion.

    Thanks,

    All opinions are appreciated, good and bad. I tried to keep it simple so it would be memorable and work for embroidery and vinyl for our trucks and trailers, but mabye it is a little to simple.

    Please keep the comments coming guys.

    I like the lower one. The only problem I see is if you get two big like I am sure you hope to do someday, the largest fertilizer company usus a orang butterfly in their logo

    What company are you talking about? The biggest 3 around here are TGL, Scotts, and Lawn Doctor, and none of them have a butterfly.

    I have decided on the blue actually though, because research shows that customers respond better to blue. I'm just not sure if I could cut the butterfly and just leave the grass plant, or leave the butterfly.

    Drop the butterfly. I would not make the tag line part of your logo. You can have a tag line, but just would not want it with your logo. You may want to change it someday....or today...lol.
