Is it a word that you'd really like to be there? Personally, I try and leave what my service does for the 'slogan' part.

A lot of people can go to "Joe's Pizza" and not realize they actually make the best spaghetti, yet alone serve it.

Just something to think about, each way has it's pros and cons.

Also, this;



so cool... lol

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
What is your potential client base?

Are they young, wealthy, liberals? If so, I think a "military" name would do you no favors.

I do a lot of work deep in "enemy territory" and I just keep my mouth shut when it comes to their Obama stickers and such.



Thank you for your service by the way. I'm intrigued by your naming dilemma and I'll see if I can think of anything worth suggesting...

please help me with this. the sooner i figure this out, the sooner i can get card and flyers made.

i also love the "dont tread on me" rattlesnake logo and would like to have than Incorporated into the name or something..

i am lost, what do you guys have?
I'll see what i can come up with for ya. I was a 19D, hence the Saber from my name so I know what you mean wanting to honor your MOS and your service.

It's late, i smoked a pork butt and drank a lot of beer. check in this weekend, I'll either post it here or PM ya.

potential clients.. hmm.. well since i am just getting started i will take anyone. but where i live is pretty country. it is pretty churchy from what i have gathered and a lot of people have american flags and support troops. like someone said earlier, i think a catchy military type name will spark a conversation at least.

like i said i have no clients yet so going either commercial or residential is not yet decided. probably more residential though. it is very competitive around here, lawn trailers at every light.

i am sure this didnt give any help with the questions but thats all i got.

i like the Landing Zone a lot, though. pretty slick looking. maybe incorporate the 82nd logo? All American is what the AA means



but hey, maybe i am going in the wrong direction with the military name. sure everyone appreciates people who have served but maybe it isnt the best "lawn business" naming convention???

You'll never know for sure what kind of response you will get until you test it. So I'd say go with your gut. Do what you want to do and then judge the response. See if it is giving you what you like.

how about "AA" or All American lawncare ? it will get you to the front of the list in the phone book ,and if they dont like the military thing,you can tell them its the other AA .

I like All American Lawncare, You already have a logo haha.
LZ Lawncare or Landing Zone is pretty awesome to me.

Offer a discount to vets, and to wives of active servicemen.

Much respect and thanks for serving! Good luck.

I like the Landing Zone also. You might want to put AA Landing Zone (All American Landing Zone). It won't offend anyone, and it says what you want it too. By the way, can you legally use the AA logo and symbol? You might want to check on that with some upper-class. You could also use the American Flag with maybe the snake in front of that.

"I think we've got the wrong address. ... There's no grass here!"

Your logo could be of a paratrooper holding a trimmer/mower... lol
