    Pretty set on using APEX, but in what form. Here are my thoughts so far.

    Apex Professional Landscaping and Turf Management
    Apex Landscaping and Turf Management
    Maybe add service at the end?

    My business will be geared toward Landscaping (installs, small designs, and maintenance) and on the Turf side (chemical treatments). Probably down the road, aerations and overseeding.

    I've been in landscaping for quite sometime with two companies, and also have been a commercial applicator for the past 12+ years off and on for these companies.

    I'm presently out of landscaping and into another field. But, I am going to start my own part time business in hopes of growing it into a full time career eventually. Need to settle on the name so I can get the ball rolling for my license.

    There is a company that does business in the US with the Name APEX, How big do you want to grow-- will that be a problem.
    They are not in lawncare.

    By the way-- what does it mean for you. Why APEX

    Yeah I like 2nd one and I think I would add service to the end.

    No true meaning to me. Business starting with a "A" would move me closer to the front of the phone book.
    Just big enough to make a decent living.

    I like Apex "insert anything here". It all ready sounds familiar. I guess because of whatever that other company is. But who cares....go for it.x Use the familiarity to your advantage.

    If it doesn't matter, why not use your screen name as a business name?
