    My cousin owns a graphic design/marketing company in Chicago (I'm in Mi) and She has been flooding me with logo ideas but here is the problem. Her logos look more, a lot more professional than mine but they don’t seem too fit just right. They would look out of place on the side of my work truck, or at least I think they would. For the most part lawn care advertising IMO should be to the point, but maybe there is room for a little more style? Check out the attachments and tell me what you think. The first one is the logo I came up with and the second is my cousin’s.

    I like the first one. With the white background I would change the bottom letters to a gray or other color than white. It will make it show up a little better. Now it just blends in to the white back ground a bit to much. Good luck, nice logo.

    Hi CompletePropertyCare,

    My initial thought on the second logo was that the elements of the logo could be more solid. Like the grass or snowflake could be made bolder to stand out more. But it's still very nice.

    I would say that you have two logos that each are stronger for separate items. The first logo, with it's bolder text. and drop shadows has higher readability, making it a natural for moving objects like a truck, your shirts/hats etc. The grass on it looks just stuck there, a possible move somewhere else or larger and faded in behind as a background might work better. The second logo, with it's refined text might actually look better on the tops of invoices and letterhead.
