Hi Will

I'll be brutally honest.....it looks quite like a lot of other DIY lawn care logos which isn't going to help you stand out from the crowd, especially when you're just starting up.

I realise you probably don't want to spend any money on it, but it could be worth investing a massive $4 or so to purchase a pre-designed template and just adjust it to add your business name and tag line.

Here are some examples which are very different from the typical lawn care logo, but something which I think would help differentiate you.

http://graphicriver.net/item/classic...thor=R_GENESIS


There are thousands of other options, but they are just a couple of ideas.

You will need to download either GIMP or Inkscape (both free) to edit the text in the images.

If you decide to use something from the site and have any trouble editing it, let me know and I'll help you out.

Cool logo

We tried to buy a logo and that fell through horribly and we felt that its not the logo that defined us, Its are dedication and hard work. So we drew that up and ran with it cause its plain but defined enough that its hard to Mistake who we are and what we do. (i.e. no one is going to think we cut Hair because we have a leaf in the logo let alone the word "Lawncare" lol)

but not all our Buisness items have "lawncare" on them (I.e... Personal notepads, Hats or pens... But our Shirts -yes, Cards -yes, Flyers -yes, and so on)

Cool Shirts

Later today (sunday) I will post a pic of our Shirts we use when talking to new/possible clients and hopefully you will see why we love our logo.

When I see your logo, I think its a diet, work out pill or something, then I see what your business does, lawn care in small print.

In one glance, they need to know what you do. Service above name, if they need the service, they will look for the name and number.

And Just now, when I look at it I think oh ok, there name is Pro Trim Lawncare LLC

Lawncare is two words. not one. this is a classic mistake

If your name is also what you do, make sure there is no confusion about that. Make it big and easy to read.

Just my two cents

Apologies but I was wasn't very inspired by it...
I don't want to be mean but it looks like the Nike logo with a leaf...

It's not "fuzzy" because it's "zoomed in", it's pixelated because you didn't do it properly.
It needs to be created as vector art (think Adobe Illustrator) so it can be reproduced at any size you wish.

you can also use a free program called inkscape to create a vector graphic. We cut vinyl in house for banners and decals and use inkscape all of the time. While it is not quite as nice as illustrator it is a lot cheaper and does the same thing.
