    I am not keen on Solo Lawncare. It implies that you will be working solo, which may be the case at this point, but will you always be solo???

    Out of the two I would pick Northstar, but I'm not the craziest about it, unless there is a reason you picked it. Example like if "northstar" is the area you will be servicing.

    Are you willin to use part of your name or your initials?
    Do you do just lawn care or just landscaping, or both? Do you do snow removal? Landscape maintenance?

    What all types of services do you offer?
    what is the name of your town or area?

    Things like this will help us help you pick a name.

    I actually like using the owner's last name just as long as the last name isn't a real hard one to remember or is too difficult to spell. Then afer your last name add what you are going to specialize in. Whether it be just lawn care, or lawn and landscape services etc....
    Also, you might want to try and incorporate the name of the area where you will be working in as part of your company name. Pendleton's Lawn Services or Pendleton's Landscape Services......

    My problem is that I do Lawn Care and Landscape maintenance in Oregon but I am getting started in Washington within the next three weeks doing both maintenance and Landscaping. I just got my bond and I am waiting for my Washington Landscape License. I am not licensed in Oregon because I am still trying to study for all the tests in Oregon, plus in my area it is not a real great market in the Landscape installs and such. I can't have a trailer or truck lettered using Landscaping in the business name because once I cross the state line coming into Oregon from Washington I am violating state landscape laws (advertising or landscaping without a state license). I can use landscape maintenance, or lawncare in the name. I just cannot use the term Landscaping due to Oregon Laws being really stupid. At some point I am looking at getting my Oregon License. Just not right away. I would use my last name but it sucks in a business name!
