    Good article Trees!

    Mayhem, i am just giving you my opinion, please ignore it if you want to. I do know what the word means.

    To me the word extreme sounds immature.

    Also, it goes over the top. I do not believe someone if they tell me that they will be extremely punctual, extreme quality, or extremely affordable. It just sounds like fluff (over exaggerated).

    If you are selling your services to teenagers, then it is a great name, if you are selling your services to middle aged folks like me, we aint buying.

    Best luck to you Mayhem, and my extreme best wishes.

    I would stay away from the hokey/cheesey or cool catchy names. They're great for now, but imagine if you grew to 10 employees. And you're called GreeneXtreme.

    Notice the difference in GreeneXtreme,blades of glory, etc,and something like Landscape Services Incorporated. Outdoor Enterprises, Landmark Lawn & Landscape Inc (my business).

    Definition of extreme.


    Remember: Once you register the company name with the State, that's it!

    ok, no need to continue calling other members names, etc. asking for opinions on a biz name and attacking others when opinions, suggestions, etc. are given is not necessary either

    closing this one down...thanks all :waving:
