    I think i want to change the name of my operation from "mikes lawn service" to "mcwlandscaping" after hearing a friend talk about it today with me, made me realize that i think it is better for a name. Opinions? Plz vote.

    How will that be pronounced? as one word? or as separate letters, M C W Landscaping? It all just runs together, you can do better I think.

    Mike I agree, I think that MCW sounds better. The "Mikes Lawn Service" and "Bob's Lawn Service" etc. are many. Some would say a persons name gives it a personal touch and will give customers the warm fuzzies. Others will say a more professional name is better. Bottom line is which do you like.

    Be careful about changing your name from 'lawn service' to 'landscaping'. This could significantly change your business. If you do predominantly lawn care now and plan on switching to landscaping, great. But if you do lawn care mostly and plan on keeping it that way, I'd shy away from landscape in the name. Your name has to reflect your business. What category of the phone book will you be listed in? Just a few things to consider.

    Mike pal, no offense, but they both stink. I'll prolly pizz off a few here, but I think "Joe's Lawn Care", "Fred's Landscaping", or even using your initials kinda lacks creativity. Put a little more thought into it and come up with something more unique and creative.
