    Make it super simple for small out-fits. Make sure it is clear by your name that you cut grass.

    Example: Im in SC.

    Remember you will have to live up to your name!

    Tough Question. I took the easy way out and used my name. I suppose it would help if you would post a little more about your target audience, the services you provide, how you want to be thought of. Do you have a website? How bout something highbrow like Colonial Mow? Or Clip 'n whip... Urban Mow 'n Grow.. hmmm. Green Line Mow Co.

    I agree...make it simple....make it clear in your name that you cut grass. I know you haven't but I wouldn't recommend using your own name. I don't think you can do a single search online where any organization will recommend you using your own name. Sounds small time, unprofessional, and if you ever sell it....I wouldn't want to own someone else's last name.

    Morning Dew to me sounds to much like generic Mt. Dew.

    I used my last name, but I want to stand out. I didn't want the name to be White's Landscaping, like 90% of the other companies. So I played with it and came up with mine.

    Tag line- The white path to a green garden. Like saying white and wong.
