    If my services are lawn care and pressure washing, you think its okay to have landscapes in my name? I dont want to mislead people, since I wont do major landscaping. Does lawn care fall into landscaping? Think it will be okay?

    Yes, it would be misleading. You are lawn service. Many others here will even tell you that "lawn care" is more for stuff like fertilization and stuff. Although most customers don't know that so it doesn't really matter.

    But I personally wouldn't use landscaping if I were in your situation

    John,
    Inevitably you will be doing some kind of landscape work, even if it's remedial work. It's impossible not to do limited landscaping for your customer base. You will not want them calling other landscapers to do plantings, small installations, etc. You won't be around long if you do. So I don't think having "landscape" in your name will hurt you if it's what you really want. But since you do pressure cleaning, you might want to think about using the term, "landscape management" I think that fits you better and it will leave the door open for everything you want to offer and it sounds more inviting for potential clients.

    Let me know if you need any help with anything.

    Tommy

    probably photoshop, you can also use GIMP(it's free).
