    I would like everybodys opinion which name to go with.
    Genesis Landscapes
    or
    Fred's Lawn Care
    I think using my first name gives it a more personal feeling maybe more people would go for that since i am part time on my own. :eek:

    Just want to let you all know that i went with Fred's Lawn Care.
    I didn't want to offend any one for stealing a name from the bible.

    Depends. Are you going to be doing mostly landscaping or mowing? Use the one which suggests what your company is about.

    Fred's lawn care is very uncreative in my opinion. It gives you not uniqueness. I'd reconsider. Your name is very ipmortant, and I would recommend picking something that you can stick with as long as you are in business.

    Fred's or Genesis.....hmm sounds like some winner choices. I would definitely pick genesis over freds. There is a Genesis health club here in town and I have never once thought about the bible when hearing that name. Spend some time and think of something creative. You are going to have to say your business name 30 times in a day. You mind as well find something you can be proud of.

    Using your first name for your business sucks in my opinion. Use something nature like. When I was looking for a name, I looked at names of neighborhoods for inspiration. Their names are always something nature like, and something well though out. Also consider something shorter than my name!
