My company needs some Identity. I have been a LCO for about 11 years. Three years ago I added stump grinding to my list of services. This year I purchased a tractor and some attachments and have become state certified in landscaping.

I need a name and a logo that will represent my company. This will be used on everything. Trucks, shirts,caps, jackets, letterhead, invoices, etc.

I have never advertised (Paid advertising) my lawn care biz but I think its time for a change. I want to incorporate all aspects of my services into this identity if possible.

I started out years ago with "Quality Lawn Service"
I then went to "Sherrill's Stump Removal Service"
Then it was "Sherrill's Stump & Lawn Service"
Now it is "Sherrill's Stump, Lawn & Landscape"

I recently had shirts printed with Sherrill's Stump, Lawn and landscape as my company name and its just generic looking.

I would like a symbol based logo. If I put just that symbol on something, people would know that it stood for My Company.

Before I offer a reward...can you guys work with that.
I am very open minded to change...........



whatcha think........

Hi o-so-n-so,

This is a very talented group of designers, if you have a mental idea of what you want or you can direct them as they place updates, I am sure you will be happy with the results. The biggest key to getting what you want in your design is to remember that you take on the role of artistic director and utilize their abilities to get what you want.

That is good. I think more abstract with a ez read font.
I like what lawngodfather chose for his logo. I like anything nature and simple. Tree-grass-sun-leaf-landscape with earthtone colors.

Some of my past door sign photos. I would like to represent all parts of my biz into one logo. If thats possible.

Nice logo with the stump & cutter wheel but not what I'm after. I want people to know that I do more than stumps.

thanks
