    I worked for a lawncare company for 5 years and am now taking over the business and need a new name. Any ideas? I'm in Illinois and use walker mowers and do fertilizing and weed control as well. I've thought of cutting edge lawn care, sunrise lawncare, sunrise lawncare and straight line lawncare. But all except the last are already used in Illinois. I do residential and commercial and am trying to market the mid to upper class. I'm not interested in bouncing across a rough lot of crabgrass, so I'd like the name to reflect that, so people no i'm not a 20 dollar-any-size-yard guy.

    If you want it to sound professional I would leave out "lawncare" and use something like land maintenance, property maintenance, or landscape maintenance. To me "lawn care" is kind of generic like the 20 dollar any yard kind of guy you don't want to be.

    I too sahre your concern, in that I'm without a name since I dropped the incorporation... Perhaps something with the word "Estate" in it, would be helpful... :)

    Since your name is "Agent" Walker, how about 007 Lawn Service :drinkup:

    Remember that in some states, countries etc. if you use a fictitious name like 007 Lawn Care, you may have to file something letting everyone know who the actual owners are. In PA, you have to file the name with the state and run an ad in the local paper announcing your new CO and who the owners are.
