From what I have seen, those who take the step to be outrageous, will gain attention and customers. The more conservative you are, the more you will just blend in with everyone else.

I want you to do what you are comfortable with. I want you to choose a name you are comfortable with.

If you want to be outrageous, pick an outrageous name and go with some outrageous marketing.

If you want to be more mild, which is fine, go with something like Quality Lawn Care.

Remember though, business is all about exploring and experimenting. Look at what happened with Lee from Tiger Time Lawn Care. He promoted his bikini lawn care service, which was risky, and now he landed on tv interviews. These tv interviews led to new customers.

So as an experiment, it never hurts to dream BIG and OUTRAGEOUS. Then you can always scale it back to a level you are comfortable with.

Have you thought about adopting a name correlating to the area in which you live? Just as an example, if you live in the "Northbrook" area of St. Louis, you could call yourself "NorthBrook Lawn Care" or "NorthBrook Land Maintenance"

I've noticed that customers will be very loyal to you when they know you focus your attention on one part of town. Elderly customers, especially, want to do business with someone local.

If "Northbrook" only has a population of 1000, this might be too limiting and you will have to choose a broader area. Play with the idea.

Let us know what you decide.

Keith

You know, that is a good idea. I mean it's silly but it could totally be used in branding. LOL Can you imagine?

Then you could get a banana costume and at times just wear it as you are cutting a lawn and WOW would people see you!

You could paint your truck bright yellow too!

Steve

Here is a truck idea.

Steve

Then you could give out banana pens with your company name and phone number on it.

You could dress up your dog with a banana suit and have him as your mascot in your photos.

Dude, change your name to Tiger Time Lawn Care and ride on his publicity. ;-)

His Bare Lawn Care schtick has landed him world wide news attention. Nice job T.T. Milk this for all it's worth.

Congrats:

Go with something you like and something that stands out.

rudeboy
07-25-2007, 05:30 AM
well here some more names

student lawn care
All Season Lawn care
Grass Busters
Lawn Gators
Pro Lawn
Weeds Away Lawn Care
Yard Works

do you like any of theses

Steve
07-25-2007, 06:24 AM
Rudeboy,

Tell me this, do you feel more comfortable going with a conservative name or a more outrageous name?

rudeboy
07-25-2007, 06:40 PM
i just want a name that sound good and what people can remember
i dont want like common name like using my own name

Steve
07-25-2007, 09:05 PM
I think if you want to stand out more, go with the Rock Star Lawn Care or even the Dancing Banana Lawn Care and then really work on the imagery and the brand identity. If that's not your style, then maybe go with fox lawn care.

What's your view?

rudeboy
07-26-2007, 03:24 PM
im probably going go with fox lawn care now i just need come up with something as for a logo

tiedeman
07-26-2007, 08:57 PM
YES!!! I really like the fox name. The graphics could be amazing doing something with a fox in it

I'm in the same boat, just can get a name down.

Husband wants C & M services

we don't want anything with "lawn" in the name b/c we wanna do other things like pressure washing etc

so it's hard to decide.

But I do like the fox idea for you, I would def remember that one.:D

Green Clippers sound good too

Your Lawn M.D. name reminded me of a name I was going to use...The Lawn Doctor - A friend of mine had a successful tree cutting service called The Tree Doctor, and I always like the name.
