I'm curious as to how it would look with just the text?

or like this, with a nice offset?

Hmmmm. I like it because it's kind of looks like it has texture, but I can see the quality of the image going down if it's put on clothing and signage.

Maybe keep simple colors?

You can also just use multiple font styles, and change the size of each font letter around to create something you wont find anywhere else.

Here's one simple font, made to look different... Capital letters shrank to the same size as lower case can add a cool effect...

i think your logo ideas look great but i am curious as to what state you are located in?
i only ask because there is a ton of landscape businesses with the same name.

NY, Ohio, Florida, Louisville, NC, CT, NJ to name a few and all but one of these companies are huge.
there were also many more in other states and all of the sites i came across had elaborate logo's so i would assume none where yours being you are still working on that.

i only mention this as a FYI and nothing else and as long as you are in a different state and no one in your state goes by that name then all will be well for you.
seems like a real popular name and either way best of luck to you.

im in NJ. i just started my business up last year and realized there were a few in the state with this name. i already made up door hangers and this logo and everything so i said screw it. i don't think it will affect my business though. the only guy with this name that's remotely in my area really only focuses on design where as I'm only property maintenance.

i understand what you are saying and why but it don't really matter what you or the other business does because the other business is probably a registered business and pretty much owns the name as far as the state is concerned.

plus if you continue to build up this name and then the inevitable happens and you have to change it you will lose far more money and your time dealing with it later then sooner.
you are better off biting the bullet and addressing the problem now as well as when you come up with a new name register it with the state of NJ that way you not only will have your own name it will also allow you to see if there is anyone else with the same name to avoid that problem from ever happening again.

just trying be helpful because i had someone i know very well run into the same exact problem except he was further along and ended up having to get a lawyer involved and it ended up being a big mess for him financially as well as it set him back with his business because he had to start all over again.

either way what ever you do good luck.
