  • New Name New Image!

    So a few years ago me and a buddy had a landscaping business with lawn maintanence. We had ran it for three years and were quite successful. Well he quit and i wasn't prepared to work it myself at that time in my life, so i went back into the rat race and started back at retail. well after a few years of working for someone else and having nothing to show for it i start wondering......why? So i decided to go back to what i know and love. When we had our business we had a name and log and where legit.

    Klean Kutz Landscaping and Lawn Maintanence



    our old logo

    that was our logo. well times have changed and i want to start off alot more professional then what i had. i want to be know as a company, not just some yard guy so i came up with new logo theme and advertisement. Let me know what you guys think.


    our advertising banner

    our logo to go on shirts

    honestly..i dont like the idea..
    it would be too hard to market IMO
    some time if car vinyl came into play..you have to find a vinyl printer and UV fades that pretty fast so you would need to redo your vinyl every couple years..

    with that many details and colors printing for your marketing will be more expensive

    and again im not trying to be rude..but i just think it would be too difficult..you dont have a memorable or eye catching logo either IMO if i saw that on a yard sign id probably just keep driving..

    again..this is just me
    im sure everyone will have a different view on it

    if you decide to change a logo or something i do graphics design for free and i could give you some of my ideas..

      I like the frog as it really stands out and it is pretty cool to have a frog as your mascot. I think if I saw that advertisement that it would turn my eye. Not sure if a frog goes with lawn care, but who cares...it is different and that might work.

      I do have to agree with jklawncare with cost of printing. With those vibrant colors marketing will be expensive. Will also be expensive to put those colors on tshirts, etc...

        I am kind of neutral to the idea. I do like your old name Klean Kutz but Ribbit is good. The graphic and new logo is different which is very good. As far as printing and color and what the other guys said they are right, but here is my thought "COLOR" does pop, people love it, and you need to put money into marketing so if it does cost more I think it would be worth it. (Part of my regular job is printing).

        Paint your whole truck the frog and everybody would turn their heads and always remember that frog lawn care truck running all around town... and remember "Dream it, Build it, Go for it". I hope I got that right, Steve.

        Also whoever did your graphics did a great job real clean, HOWEVER-as the wife pointed out, "maintenance" is spelled wrong.

        When I started, I needed a logo BAD... I think I have a good name so I just typed it with some fonts. Oh well, some day I will get a better one.

          mmm...


          Your frog should be 'drawn in' kind of like a vector graphic image with no pixels showing.

          I can see the crop around it.

          It's very hard to turn an image into a vector - though it can be completely traced into one.


          I have the program for it, I would be willing to give it a shot.

                    I think it is a fun name and could be really played up in your marketing.

                    For instance, imagine if your uniform was green in color and you wore a frog hat.

                    If you do a search for them, there are many. From more sedate to outrageous. Here is an outrageous one.



                    You could also paint your truck a green frog color as well.

                            Thanks to all for your replies.

                            1. First off I did all the graphics myself with photoshop, first time I have ever used photoshop or did any graphics designing...so appreciate the comments

                            2. When you say I couldn't get the frog out of your head then that's exactly what I was tring to do.

                            3. Thanks for noticing that maintenance was wrong it will be corrected

                            4. LOVE the slogan lol very clever and funny

                            So far everyone i've asked prefers the new image and name so looks like I'm headed in the right direction. I know the marketing will be a bit more but from the responses I believe that it will be well worth it.

                            Thanks again
