Default Help with name

Good afternoon everyone!

I have been in the landscape scene for 3 years now. Started out doing side work for family and friends for a few extra dollars and each year my name has been put out there and i pick up a few more customers. Im now officially at the tipping point and I want make it legit.

Currently working on getting all my paperwork together to file with the state and i have decided i want to change my company name before i file. Im currently operating as "Hartman Landscaping" but there are way too many Hartman Landscaping companies out there, so i want to come up with something different but im not quite sure what to go with.

Do you guys have any input or ideas? I guess i would like to try to keep the Hartman in it, as that is what everyone around here knows me as.

Also, what can i do to seperate myself from the competition? By far i have the best quality around, but with quality comes more time and thus higher prices. any suggestions here as well?

Thanks for everything!

When you say out there, are you talking about in your service area, in your state or in north america?

Ultimately, if you are the only one using that name in your service area, then you are all set.
