how do i go about doing this.
Could you be a bit more specific?
How to i Reg my Lawn service Name were no one can copy it.
I see you're in Georgia. Here's a link to the Georgia Secretary of State's web page showing you how to become a corporate entity (e.g. an Inc., L.L.C., etc.).
I'm in NC, so I'm not sure how it works in GA, exactly, but it looks very similar to here. Should be very simple and inexpensive for you to do. I think mine was $225.00. Looks you'll be able to download the forms you need & you can call the Secty's office for help if you need it.
When you're on the Secretary's site, perform their search on the name you want to use & you will see if it's already taken. This is exactly what that office should do before they issue you an Inc. or L.L.C. Once you're registered, the name is yours & if someone else turns up using it you can give them the reason why they have to change.
Also..........one tip I can give you is to take the paper work you get from the Secretary's office, then go down to your local Register of Deeds office and enter your corporate entity name on their books there, too. Just a simple, easy precaution you can take to help prevent name copying.
