    My brother and I are partners in GrassRoots Lawn Care. Next month we will be splitting the Biz. He will retain the name and the Corp. I have a few ideas floating around in my head for a name for my new Biz.

    I want to sound professional to attract commercial accounts so nothing like "Mike's Lawn Care". I also read through all of the prior posts concerning this and some guys seem to think that ABC Lanscaping is better than ABC Lawn Care, as most customers would be willing to pay more to a Landscape Co. vs. a Lawn Care Co. I'm interested in your opinions on this. Anyway here are a few...

    Infinity Lawn Care.
    Liberty Lawn Care.
    Cornerstone Lawn & Landscapes.
    Advantage Lawn Care.
    Diversified Lawn & Landscapes.
    Diversified Ground Maintenance.
    Common Ground Lawn & Landscapes.
    Southern Landscapes.
    EcoScape Lawn Care.

    Any and all opinions appreciated.

    How about your full name. Example: "John Doe Lanscaping" or or "John Doe Lawn Care".It is unique only to you. You don't have to worry about anyone else using it. Look at the time you will save not having to think up a "cute and catchy name. You asked for my opnion.

    How about a name that says would you do?
    like "On time lawncare" "Your on time landscaper"

    "We love mowing lawns" "we install landscapes"

    just some examples, a name that says what you do is different and powerful. you alao need a tag, like Coke is the real ______, when it _______ positivly has to be there over_______.

    if you can fill in the blanks than the power of marketing is at work.

    Do you offer landscaping as a service?That would be better if you did,or if you plan to in the future.

    INFINITY sounds good to me, i feel the same about using your name for a business name, its sounds not real professional, now guys dont jump down my throat, its only my opinion.BOB

    i would agee on not using your own mane if its billybob's mowing and handywork.
    but using you last name could work, ever hear of FORD,Trump,Taco BELL, sears,levis.

    GrassRoots Lawn Care, go to http://www.lawnservicing.com and scroll down the page to where you see a subtitle "Starting Out". It's just below a little neon green area. Then click on "Starting Out" and then when that page comes up go to "It's All In A Name (naming your business)" click on that and there is a little paragraph on naming your business. It's got a couple good points.
