    :wall So I been searching around online for info on how to name my Lawn Care business. So far everything I have found says you shouldnt use your last name? My last name is "Hill" and I kinda thought "HillSide Lawn Care" would be a good one. My services will only include Mowing, Brush Removal, Sod Removal & Pressure Washing (NOT commercial) Anyone have any imput, ideas or resources that may help? Seems everytime I think up something good I do a search with the state and its taken :wall any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Maybe use your last name in a slogan for a business name. We will climb hills to get your business9(example). but not in your name.
    Or the economy is very hilly but your yard does not have to be...etc.etc good luck.

    Not sure if it matters. The one thing is if you use you name you won't be sued for using a registered name from someone else.

    I don't know why anyone shouldn't use their own name, at least their last name.
    Maybe first names would be somewhat amateurish such as Bill's Landscaping.
    (sorry Bill).

    If you build a good reputation, what could be better than your last name.
    People know you; they know your business.

    Thanks for the imput guys. I dont think it would hurt either, Just seen ALOT of folks say that I shouldnt. Using my last name will help me come up with a name ALOT easier to. Thanks again. :weightlifter:

    Works great for us, we continually grow every year and the city knows who we are now. This will be our 10th season using my last name.

    How about "Titus Lawn Care" ?...since you're from Titusville?:)
