    Been in business since 1991.

    Think it may be time to change my business name to clarify what I do.

    Been operating under Spring Meadows Property Management.
    So many call me wanting me to manage rentals (handle rent money, etc... not maintenance)

    Thinking of changing it to Spring Meadows Lawn & Landscape, Spring Meadows Landscape Group or Spring Meadows Landscape Solutions.

    My wife and I can't decide. What do you guys think?

    Take the property management jobs. You can make good money, and still do your landscape jobs.

    Out of the names listed, I'd go with "Spring Meadow Lawn & Landscape"
    That name sounds the best in my opinion.
    I'm currently in the process of changing mine to Clean Cut Lawn & Landscape.

    Good Luck

    Sounds like you do maintenance judging from your previous name. If you still do it, you should include it in your name.


    "Spring Meadows Landscaping and Maintenance."

    I have to say that I like metros idea of just changing management to maintenace. Looks good and not much of a change but enough that it paints the right picture. That is this hoosiers two cents.

    That still might be a bit confusing to folks though.

    I am for Spring Meadows Landscape Group.

    I'm thinking about doing the same thing David. My company's name is John Erik Nelson Properties, LTD. It doesn't say what I do or offer. I mainly mow grass. I also take care of hanging plants.

    Time for a change

    one question you should ask yourself Indiana, are you going to do anything besides mowing & landscaping in the future? Because the "management" could do well if you get into these in the future; property patrols, irrigation, snow removal, sports turf care, nurserys, etc.
