    Lawn Shark / Loan Shark......The seed of connotation of "seedy" is planted in a potential customer's mind just that fast.

    Lawn Shark Lawn Maintenance. Kinda odd seeing the same word twice in a company name.

    Has worked for us for years!!! No bad connotations have ever been associated with it. We get tons of comments on what a catchy name.

    Check us out at www.lawnsharks.org and get an idea of what we do and our logo.
