    I want to get a few signs on the truck and on the trailer gate. I hated doing flyers and i hope i will generate some calls from the signs. How well have they worked for people? Can a large sign be mounted on the mesh gate of a trailer or would that just be a hassle.

    Also a bus name. Last name is Dailey. I was thinking of using the name since it sounds like daily. Here were my thoughts as of now any input appreciated.

    Dailey's OK. Make sure the second half describes the work you do.

    Lawncare tends to mean a pesticide business. Landscaping tends to be installs and hardscaping. If you just mow and mulch, maybe go with "lawn maintenance".

    I would not expect to get many calls from the sign alone. But don't get a cheap black/white basic font one, either. Get a nice sign and do the flyers anyway.

    What do you do in the way of services??

    What is your goal for the company? (Top end landscaping, maintenance, mix of both??..) Name needs to fit the image you are trying to portray.

    Good Luck..

    Hi, I am a seventeen year old that runs a "lawn maintenance" business right now. I want to change the name currently B and M Tree and Lawn but I am not quite sure what to change to. I want to go to college and study to be Landscape Architect but that is atleast 4years down the line before I coud achieve that, any help would be apprieciated. And also if any one knows the exact guidelines for the state of GA, guidlines for what is required and what is recommended to run a business. The county and everyone else I speak to juust gives me the run around. Thanks

    I like that. Sounds professional. Don't skimp on the signs, and drive safe with em on your truck, you are a rolling billboard.


    Whatever you do, bring your business to college with you and save as much money as you can.
