I don't operate with a business name. Just plain ol me out there do yard work. I've had customers confused based on my flyer. They've written out the check to the company when it should have been my first and last name. What they wrote wasn't even the company name, just the Title to my Flyer.

Ill be licensed bonded and insured like i used to be. So that doenst work out to good for me. Its alot easier to do things and get recognition when you have a name to put out there that you can push like a brand...
Oh yeah and do commercial accounts

In a way having a business name is beneficial, but where I live, people have told me that they prefer to hire someone who can use the money, more then a company that is already doing well, and is charging triple the normal rate.

Thats true. That probably goes for anywhere. Most people probably will always go the cheaper way as long as you show up and do a pretty good job.
I guess it just depends on what you want out of your business and what kind of customers you want...


There is so many lawn biz's around here almost any name combo you can think of is took. I spent quite a bit of time finding one i like then go look it up and its gone...it just makes it that much more different tho

Oh yea brotha, there are over 30 people advertising in Farm and Garden section on Craigslist where I live at. I try to beat the competition not by offering lower prices, but by putting a website with before and after pictures to my site. Also I will bold my phone number, to show I know what I'm doing when it comes down to writing my ads.

Or neither and keep trying? lol
Impressive Touch Landscaping
or
Detailed Impressions Landscaping
or
Green Touch Landscaping

I want it to reflect that we pay attention to detail and you see good work when we are finished.
Well any ideas would be appreciated
here is an idea the name of the company should be all capitals and bold
right below it with regular letters just write something interesting and at the end just state u are a landscaper something like this:

ELEVATE
Detail and perfection
A landscape company

simple but yet sophisticated
