    There are a bazillion threads about this subject on lawnsite. Do a search.

    Personally, I think anything with "mowing" in it is very limiting. I know you said that you plan on doing mowing only. But so did I 7 years ago when I started. And by about my 3rd or 4th year I was turning down so much freaking landscaping work that I just couldn't stand it. I was making other landscapers rich by referring them so many jobs. Finally, I just began to pick up a few small landscaping jobs here and there and it just grew from there. Now we do everything. And I NEVER thought I'd want to do anything more than mowing.

    But now that I look back, I am glad I chose "Lewis Landscape Services" over "Lewis Mowing" because I'd have had to change my name about 3 years ago otherwise. Think long term.

    Limiting your business to just mowing would be detrimental. You'll start to get customers that want other services and you could be cutting your own throat by not providing them.

    How about this for a name-
    Better get a second job from October thru May,
    Get used to mowing tiny little yards all of which have a wooden fence around them and a 36" gate, and
    You'll be mow running a mow only business in a state that is soon outlaw the use of water on lawns. Seems there is 2 million residents and growing, but only 1 gallon of water in the mile high city.

    If this reply sounds jaded it's because I'v been there. Lived there 7 years and loved the mile high city, but to run a mow only business there would be very tough. Most everyone there has a second source of income. Every name mentioned above is currently a name of a company in Denver. Last I checked, there were about 50 pages of lawn companies in the Denver Metro phone book.
