Can you suggest a name for a landscaping business?

Asked by augustlan (47404points) June 18th, 2010

My husband will be starting a new job in a week, managing a landscaping company. He signed on with the understanding that he’ll work 4 days a week, and will start his own landscaping business (in another town) at the same time. He plans to start small, in his area of expertise (trees and ornamental shrubs) and handle it on his own. However, he will eventually branch out and offer all sorts of landscaping work. He’ll sub-contract the work he can’t do on his own to his employer’s company, thus growing both companies.

Ideally, he’d like to go with something that uses the same initials as his employer’s company, BLS, (so as to create less confusion in customers serviced by both companies) but it’s not strictly necessary. He prefers creative names, but it still needs to get the idea across.

Some names he’s used in the distant past (just to give you some insight into his type of name):

Alluvial Gardens << I told him that one sounded like a cemetary…
Avant Gardener << Loved this one.

I’m going to bed now (yes I know it’s morning :P), but I’ll check in later. Thanks!

Basic Lawn Support (sorry, I work in a medical field and BLS already has a meaning for me).

Bacterial Leaf Scorch (the other existing BLS, but not helpful to his efforts).

BeLeafS . . .

I think I will go back to bed too!

May as well toot his own horn a little. (unless that’s already the name of the other co.)

You didn’t tell us what that was so we could avoid it :)

First off, congratulations to you and your hubby @augustlan! May you have lots and lots of success with the new venture, you deserve it!

Second, I happen to love the word verdant and I think it would be great in the name of a landscaping company. If I could only come up with a brilliant way to use it! Maybe some alteration and use the word value along with it? Any ideas anyone?

@syz A Verdant View! Brilliant! (IMHO)

@syz

Yes, great way to incorporate verdant without relegating it to the bottom of the pack (for YellowBook listings).

@MissA That last one made me think of DreamScape… too obscure?

Some great ideas, guys! I’m really liking the verdant slant.

How about August Landscaping? (August Lan dscaping)

Buttonstc's avatar

But, do they also work in July?

:D

Buttonstc's avatar

But seriously, I would strongly suggest any of those beginning with the letter A or B since you don’t want to be at the bottom of the Yellow Pages listings.

chyna's avatar

@Buttonstc is right. That is how I found my heating/ac guy through the yellow pages and I chose the first one, AAA Heating. He turned out to be a great repairman, too.
