Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
The first thing I think about when I see a lawn care logo is the proportions and how it would look on the side of a truck. Would it fit well in the space on the door.

So that's why I am voting for design #1.

But they all look fantastic!

Default Answer the poll Question!!

Good point you make Steve. I was thinking that if I wanted to add my number or website underneath I would have room to do so if I had a longer logo. But you make a lot a sense as well.

However, forum members don't just view this thread but post a comment or at least vote. The voting will help a lot as I am getting down to making the final decision within the next two days.

Thanks,

Curtis Michael

They all are very nice, # 4 is what I voted on. Money well spent on all of them. Tough choice

I'd rule out the last three and focus on one of the first three, or elements of each of them.

#4 is "fair"... I'm not wild about the "curve" portion of the graphic.
#5 doesn't read well - at all.
#6 has a nice graphic, but the emphasis is on the wrong word in my opinion.

I like #2 the most, as it has a more "refined/upscale" look to it and has more "options" for the elements to be used in other forms.

#1 also has potential and can be reworked for better fit on various items.


Unless a logo lends itself well to both horizontal AND vertical applications, you are best served by having two versions. There is no rule that says you have to keep the trees "on top" if it doesn't fit what you are using it on - move them to the right for example.
You don't want to just "make it fit" whatever you are using it on by altering it to the point where there is no uniformity, but two versions is perfectly acceptable.

I think there was something else I was going to say, but I don't have them open to look at while I'm typing this.

Overall, they are nicely done.

Thanks for the comments!

Very good points you bring up I will definitly take them into consideration. I was thinking about the longetivity of the logo and how that can be an issue for say profile pictures such as facebook and twitter as well as for a car decal. I actuall am working on with just the initials of THe Grounds Crew to have just a G C kind of like that of The Grounds Guys. here is the link of what i am thinking about http://www.facebook.com/#!/groundsguys. Tell me what you think Hedgemaster and anyone else.

Voted for #2...I do like #4 as well, but the color hits me the wrong way.

Using the letters GC would be a good idea for facebook and twitter like you said, and if you will be using hats or on the back of a two sided business card, but i think the GC idea would only work if your full company name is actually close by.

Good Luck! Everything is looking great.

That makes sense. No reason you can't "simplify" things in such a manner where it is appropriate. They utilized the same font, colors, and also incorporated the leaf - you could easily do the same.

I decided to go with design logo #2. Thanks for the input and help. I also came up with a logo that would be perfect for social media sites. Enjoy and thanks again.

What made you ultimately decide on that one?

Show us how you use your logo as you make some of your marketing material. I can't wait to see it on your truck and trailer.
