Landscapers are the elves of Mother Earth, giving her life, keeping her beautiful and healing her wounds. In return, the earth gives high doses of Vitamin D and a way to earn a living.
Seems like quite the beneficial relationship! If professional landscaping is something you are interested in, read on!
Having professional-level equipment and excellent service can help you land some clients, but you'll need something that will lure them in first so they can experience what your company has to offer.
What better way to do this than to have a great business name? Your name is the first impression you will make on a potential customer, and it could mean the difference between them choosing you or your competitor.

When brainstorming, keep the following in mind:
- Use your industry: Have a name that indicates what type of company you are, even if you don't say it directly.
- Use your specialty: If you specialize in something specific such as landscape design, make this clear since it can help you attract a different set of customers.
- Use rhymes: Rhymes just have this way of sticking in someone’s head, and the stickier your name, the better!
- Use your own name: You own this company, right? Be proud! There is nothing wrong with that. Bonus points if there is a clever way to squeeze it in.
- Use your location: Your town or street name could be a good source of identity and inspiration. Be sure it doesn't limit you, however. Who knows where you'll grow!
- Keep it simple: Your first or last name + Landscaping is a great name for a company.
Other Things to Consider
A few more questions to ask yourself when thinking of your name:
- Is it brandable? You’re competing with some top-dog companies for the spotlight.
- Does it have the green light online? Check for available web domains and social networking pages to see how common the name is.
- Does it really stand out? Keep in mind your local competition and steer clear of any names that sound similar.
- Is it easy for the average person to spell and pronounce? This will help your name be memorable.
- What are the most popular or biggest landscaping companies in your region called? Use them as examples of what works.
Now that you know what to look for in a name, it’s time for you to start making a list of your own. Write down 100 names and don't stop until you do! Let some of them be bad. It's okay. It's all part of the process.
Deciding on a Business Name
After you’ve made a list of potential names, you will then begin to chop and hack away at it to narrow it down to the ones that are really good.
Ask for help if you are the indecisive type; you might be surprised at the ideas in the heads of others! And let’s face it, people are pretty opinionated, and this is a time when you really want peoples’ true opinions.
If all else fails, find inspiration in your work, whether it’s cutting grass or planting a new garden. It just might plant the seed that you need to grow a few ideas!
