    WHAT? ahahah Are you a religion? Why not call it "Republican Tea Party Lawn care"? Its a business. Not a personal belief. Your limiting your potential with such insane names.

    Didnt read all the replies but I dont like it either. You say it is from an old saying "what on gods green earth" are you doing. I've heard the saying but never for a second thought of it when I read your logo. First thought was either bible thumper or someone using the religious angle as a scam to get religious customers. Like others said it's your company your logo so if you like it great. but I dont. By the way your getting a first hand review of your logo in this thread.....figure the percenatge of negative to positive response right here and it may not be far off from the public view. Just a smaller sampling

    I would have to agree with the majority. I believe you would be limiting your possible potential. Even though your intentions may not be to be preachy or whatever, there will be those that will ASSUME you will, and pass. I would also have to take into consideration those who I discussed it with. Are they in business also? The same business? Or do they just share the same perspective as you and desire to see you happy? I can't tell you what to do or not, but I would say there was some pretty good advice given by fl-landscapes:

    "figure the percenatge of negative to positive response right here and it may not be far off from the public view. Just a smaller sampling"

    All you're doing is giving someone the ability to obtain a preconceived notion of who they THINK you are, before you even open your mouth.

    I'm not a fan.
    Why not just have Green Earth instead of Gods Green Earth? I know as an atheist I would not call someone with that name as I would assume they would be preaching. There is a lot of competition in this industry and you will alieanate all but the Christian clients when they are looking for someone to do some work for them, which could see you struggle to build your business. The Clients you do get may also think you will look after them so it will be a constant battle for you to grow.

    Your customers might not want to hurt your feelings. Use this in your motto some way.

    For the record, some of you guys took this too far and are just plain jerks. However, some of you gave good constructive reasoning and I really appreciate that. To be honest, this name was not written in stone when I posted it. I wanted this to be part of my market research and I got a lot of good feedback from you guys and I appreciate it.

    I was iffy at first because the guy who is designing my logo is an athiest, and when I told him the kind of feedback I was getting on here and that I was probably going to change it he tried to talk me out of changing it because he loves the name so much. But I went on and argued that the bottom line is that I don't want my company name to insight this kind of controversy before a customer ever even meets me or my crew.

    All that said I think I am leaning toward naming it:

    Green Earth
    Lawn & Landscape

    I think a few of you suggested this and the idea has grown on me. I had a brainstorming session by myself and with a couple of other people and haven't been able to come up with anything better. I like "Green Earth," so we will rework the logo around and as soon as I have another update I will post it. It has really been coming along. Thanks for the feedback.

    I did. No Lawn & Landscape Co's with that name anywhere near my area that I could find. It will work well for my business. I have already made peace with the fact that I will never please every one of you with any name I pick. This one shouldnt be controversial and the name fits my company. Those are the main 2 things. You guys won't be convinced until you get used to that being our name and you have seen us grow and be successful over a long period of time.
