Thanks guys.

First off, I looked at a bunch of lawn care logos on google to get some ideas, I found one I really liked, well I liked the color scheme of it most, so I followed that idea.

I got the grass picture off the internet, erased some of it that I didn't like. I added text and played around with different text types, sizes, effects so on so fourth until I was happy. The effects applied or a bevel and emboss, outline and outer glow.

I converted the text to a smart object, the P was seperate so I could make it taller. Then the rest was made skinnier and longer. The Lawn care was just a different text in capitals with some color thrown in it, and I think an outline.

I still felt that it wasnt complete, so I found an image of a leaf, and placed it, rotated it some and moved it to a good spot. Then I duplicated it and rotated that one a little and moved it till i was happy.

With some basic photoshop skills you can make some pretty cool stuff, my best advice is to just play around with it, it took me almost 3 hours to be happy with this, I just kept changing things to see how they looked, I think I went through 40 different texts.

It's not bad, but you may run into problems when it comes time to having it reproduced - especially if you need it sized up.

Like "van size"?

I'm just asking because most people don't understand the technical part of what is needed for proper logo design. Maybe you do, but I don't see it happening very often.
Photoshop is not typically the first choice for such things for a reason.

There is a format in photoshop you can convert the pictures to and no matter how big you make it, it doesn't pixelate, I learned that one in highshool when making big posters.

Cool. At least you have a grasp on what you're doing.
