    hey guys, i need some advice on deciding what to register my business as. I have went on michigans website and have found that the name i am looking for has been used but in different forms so i could still register b/c mine will be a bit different. should i use just "A Cut Above" or should i use "A Cut Above Lawn And Lanscape"..or something other than just a cut above? If an account writes me a check to my company..would they have to write out the whole name b/c it seems like it would be easyer to just write payable to: A Cut Above. Does the registered bussiness name even conlfict with check writing. The bank acount is a whole separate thing but the bussiness acount name cant be to much different than the registered name can it? Thanks in advance

    The whole "A cut above" thing has become so mundane and redundant. There is one in every county, I think. It is like "Classic cuts" or "quality cut". I would sure come up with something more original. Also, what ever you come up with, don't limit yourself to cutting grass by your name. In other words, stay away from phrases like "mowing service", and such.

    I agree with what he said... I just have the name Mow Right because it is short and easy, we do a lot of up sells, but I want to brand our name and get into customers heads what we do all types of lawn care work. I am thinking of changing next year, but not sure into what.

    We have "A Cut Above" hair salon here in town.
    Something distinctive, landscape related. M&M Lawn & Landscape. Or remove the first & just MM Lawn & Landscape.

    Am I the only person that likes Greener Image? and thinks it would be a good name for branding?
