    Ok hear is the deal. I am planing on partnering with a company based in Grand Rapids Michigan to put a "devision" of that company in the metro-detriot area. The company is a Mulch blowing company and is name Superior Groundcover. The devision in the metro area will need to have a different name for tax and legal reasons. I am hoping to get a name that is close to Superior Groundcover so that i do not lose too much name recognition. But I do not want it to be a complete take off of the the name so i have a few ideas but not sure what other directions to go in.

    Hey Matt,
    how about ...
    "Mow-tor city Groundcover"

    sorry, I am a car guy. Thought it might get some looks. You could pull your trailer around with a blown 1968 Camaro with a nice low low gear. People would look out their windows to hear that loping idle, and low and behold, advertising at it's best!

    Sorry, got carried away here. Hope it helps:D

    You said that it is a Mulch Company. How about something like Metro Mulching.
    Superior Groundscover kind of sounds like a company that plants grounds cover instead of installing mulch. I am not trying to pick on ther current name. I am just point out what some one might precieve it tobe by that name.
    Onother suggestion might be Superior Mulching With a catch phrase like - helping keep weeds at bay.
    Good luck with your new company. Let us know what name you finally settle on .

    I guess i should explain a little more. The bulk of our work is mulch laying but we also can put down topsoil, rock, and other landscape materials. We do not want to focuse just on mulching and if we put that in our name it limmets our ability to move into other materials instals. We also will be working only with contractors, municipalities, and school districts. Most of these companies understand what we are trying to say with groundcover. But thank you for the advice and i do like the sound of metro-groundcover and metro-mulching both are great ideas so keep them coming!!!

    Thanks,

    Matt
