  • Name Change?

    so my name is JK Lawn Care
    stands for justin and kaleb

    as some of you know..i seperated with kaleb last year since he really didnt do much..

    i plan on getting a new partner for the year, as much as i enjoy single work, theres always the issues of time and man power.

    His name is zack and i know hell work for the money
    id like to have a name that dosnt involve his name incase something is to happen..

    The only thing i have with my name left is some rememberances in peoples heads of my advertisements. My car decals (i plan on getting rid of the car anyways) and about 100 door hangers.

    and if your afraid i would lose my word of mouth i could even put formerly jk lawn care under or in the corner of the ads..


    I have an email also but i can change that no problem

    I want to start working on paperwork and Advertisements tonight and this weekend and am not sure of to keep the name.

    any and all advice would help a great deal

    thanks so much

      That sounds ok to me, but does it indicate the lawn will be gone? Can you incorporate your home town into the name some how? For example Pittsburgh Lawnscaping or lawn care, maybe your county if your able to expand that far.

        it sounds to generic to me
        chesterton lawn care
        plus my town sounds weird

        every name i like is taken by someone or multiple people
        all in far away states so i know i could use it if its not trademarked but i want to be original in a way

            Is there a geographical sites/sites/landmark you could name after. Thats where we get the "Mountain View" as we have mountain views every direction, a high school(did not go to/asked that one alot), and a few different communities named that.

              Naming is tricky. I'm going through that nightmare myself right now.

              Draw a line through "Lawn Gone". Why would anyone want their lawn to be "gone"?



              Don't sweat it though. Sometimes a bad idea turns into a better idea.

                Naming a company is critical, I was thinking if this today as we have a host of services, it's interesting that I thought I chose a name that would cover everything, yet I get so many "Oh you do that" comments on sites I am up selling other work,,,,,no idea

                    I like the name you have now. It's already got history associated with it. You don't need your old partner to be around anymore to keep it.


                    You could go with a slogan like "when you see us mowing, you'll want to say HI-JK."

                    or

                    "when your lawns growing and you need mowing, pick up the phone and say HI-JK"

                    You could even get personalized plated that say HI JK.

                    Maybe play up the fact that your company is friendly while playing off that hijk are 4 letters that follow each other in the alphabet.

                      I suppose i could keep the JK and if someone asks whats the K for ill say my old partners name was kaleb.

                      Then go a little bit into how he didn't do much and i had to let him go in order to keep the customers happy. and that might be a little positive reinforcement for them when they think of if ill be reliable.

                      What do you think?

                      Right now my slogan is where service is always in season but i dont really advertise it so i could easily change it..

                      to be honest steve your post confused me a little bit

                      when they say HI-JK is it like fgHIJKlmn
                      or like Hello JK haha

                      i like the license plate idea as well but it seems like too much trouble as a small business owner maybe if it gets to the point where i have company trucks (multiple) i can do that..

                      but i hate the bmv sooo much..i dont want to wait 3 hours to find out its already taken or to get it and wait 4 weeks for it haha.

                      theres these license plate frames by bell i think..i saw them at kmart
                      there silver and have customizable text on them with plastic letters you snap through the back and then seal so they dont fall out..

                      it looked pretty good not too cheasy..so that might be helpful..
                      put my name on top and number on bottom..or slogan on bottom..

                      thanks for all the advice once again

                            That's why I try not to involve any names into my business name. I took everything in consideration before I registered my name

                            I had Just in Time Lawn Services but then I decided to change it to Yard since I would eventually do more than lawn so I renamed it Yard.

                            Hopefully you'll be able to find something easy.

                            Wish you good luck

                              I really wish you didnt take that name justin because id love to have it hahahaha

                              I already handed out quite a few flyers for fall with JK lawn care on there but i still dont think its too late..
                              maybe change the logo up a little bit and play around with it until i get it right.

                              if it dosnt work maybe its for the best and it should remain the same.

                              I HIGHLY encourage new business owners to not include a partners name..its too messy ahaha
