    Ok so, I finally decided on what my new name will be. DRUMROLL PLEASE.........

    FOUR SEASONS LANDSCAPING

    The reason that I chose that name was because I offer service in all four seasons:

    SPRING= Yard clean-ups
    SUMMER= Lawn Mowing and Pressure Washing
    FALL= Leaf Removal and Plant Bed Cleaning
    WINTER=Snow Removal and De-icing

    Tell me your thoughts about my new name
    BTW my former name was ALEX'S LANDSCAPING.
    But I was forced to change because someone in my servicing neighborhood(s) had their first name and landscaping exactly like me:hammerhead:
    Example: ------'s landscaping

    Hopefully you checked around on that name first? lol So you don't have to change again. Do you have to register it?

    not very original. there is prolly five or six companies around me that have four seasons in thier name.
    Four Seasons Lawn Care, Four Seasons Landscaping, Four Seasons A/C & Heating, Four Seasons Property Maintenance, i could go on!

    Don't get mad now, but that is one of the most overused names in the business. Have you researched the dba's in your area to see if you can even legally use it? Do you really do landscaping or are you primarily a mowing outfit.

    Hold on...so their name isn't even Alex? It's a different first name? If so, why worry? And it sounds like you're doing lawn care/property maintenance, not landscaping...there is a difference.

    Let me get this straight...you want to change your name from Alex's Landscaping to something else because someone nearby uses their first name followed by landscaping too, like Bill's Landscaping or something?
