    I read that you shouldn't use to many clip art pictures because they go out of style quickly. Unless it's grass or a tree or something that doesn't change over the years. I just had some made up a few days ago and posted on here feel free to look at them maybe they'll give you some ideas. they are in the business section.

    You didn't have time? You're in Ontario...How much grass is GROWing there right now?lol I still think it looks like it would be on "King of the Hill". :)
     
  8. Maybe you might want to promote the 4 season aspect of your business, instead of just the one.
    Just a thought.

    I agree that the clipart gets dated really quickly. The logo says a lot about a company. I nicely designed and well thought out logo speaks volumes about the business. Look around your community and see the top businesses logos. They are always the same and are recognizable from a distance without having to read the name. This is what we should be shooting for. Brand recognition! I would suggest getting rid of the homeowners mower. Sometimes you can add a tag line explaining what your services are that you are offering. Something like South Windsor Services - Professional Lawn Maintainance; Lawn professionals; Trusted lawn care professionals. Still call out and let the customer know what you specialize in. No one wants to hire a jack of all trades. They want to know that you are an expert or a specialist in these fields. I hope this helps.

    I agree with the others. I would lose the tractor, and just use your name with the grass blades. That would look professional and to the point.

    SWS
    {grass blades}
    South Windsor Services

    Also, since you are asking for feedback. You really don't need to list your services. Thats what everybody does and it makes you ordinary.

    How about just putting in a tag line like "Presenting healthy, robust landscapes with legendary service" or "Come home to the healthiest, most beautiful lawn and landscape in the neighborhood".

    Then bullet point "total lawn and landscape maintenance" and "snow removal"

    Try to get a creative with it.
