    i was originally going to call my lco "J.M. Lawn & Landscape" but finally figured to name it something else because there is a "J&M Landscaping" that advertises in the same news paper and area...i didnt want ppl thinking were the same company and everything

    so i came up with this (with a lot of help from my girlfriend)

    "Clear-Cut Lawn & Landscape"

    if you look up the synonyms for 'precise' on microsoft word Clear-cut is one of them.

    so what do you think

    here is a logo i came up with for it too

    edit: and no one else has it in jersey..i already checked

    Do you want to focus on Lawn Maintenance? The reason I ask is because if you want to focus on lets say Hardscaping or Tree Service for some stupid reason customers think all you do is cut grass. I do not agree with this but thats what most customers think. Just my opinion. I do like the logo....

    Well,....someone has done it again. Once in a while, someone comes up with a name, logo, catchphrase, or graphics that are well suited and hit the nail on the head. I'm not exactly sure how well thought out this was, or how much planning went into this, but it doesn't really matter. It is just well done. A nice logo to think about would be along the lines of saying something like. "For a Clear difference, make the Clear choice."

    I like the name and design, The green outline makes the name stand out. I did the same thing with my Business name. I have green lettering with yellow outline, you can read my trailers and trucks from miles away.
