    Blackwater reminds me of a pool that sat for 5 years... blackwater... I think If you go with Black Rock you will have more logo design options... go with the first

    Of course they're taken... It would take years to find a name that has never been used before. They are not in existence around here though.... Checked that out.

    You might want to see if the names are trademarked. Not sure of the law here though.

    Names are trademarked in each state i believe. You can have more than one "service" per name, like....

    New England Auto Glass
    New England ....
    New England Lawn Care.....

    So you can have more than one of the same name.

    There are 5 "blackwater" xxxxxxxx in MA, same with black rock.

    Well then I like "Blackwater"
    " We mow you down for the right price" lol
    Or
    "We mow first and ask questions later"

    Well I thought they were pretty good... I am going for upscale and staying away from last name-biz naming.
    Why don't you suggest something "turf-commando"? Just curious as to what your name is.... I assume it's stellar.
