Landscape by Lyons
I launched my new landscape design business in Minneapolis by turning my passion into my profession after working for "The Man" for many years. I specialize in the design and installation of Childrens, English, French, Native, Therapeutic and Xeriscape or Drought Tolerant Gardens.
I love to take cookie-cutter designed properties and give them the "Wow" Factor. I was so busy my first season that I found myself without any branding identity, website or business cards. This is my first important step in building my own brand.
Urban and suburban homeowners that want to simply have THE most desirable landscaping in the neighborhood.
My market is that niche of professional families and homeowners with landscaping budgets of between $1,000 and $10,000. Most are aged 35-65 and own houses in value between $400,000 and $900,000.
My designs and plantings are reflective of their favorite color palettes, favorite plantings, unique textures, and established maintenance goals.
Design a logo that is totally unique and identifiable.
VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: PLEASE AVOID USAGE OF CLIP ART.
Designers have been suspended by 99Designs.com for this and want to give everyone a fair heads up to refrain from this!
This will be the first step to eventually include a website, letterhead, business cards, invoices and signage elements. I want it Bold. I want it to be rugged. I want it to be strong. I want it to be Fun. I want it to be instantly recognizable.
Use your imagination. Think outside the norm. I want people to see the Logo and think that is "The coolest thing I have ever seen!" and this guy is in the Landscaping business.
I would like a Lion to be a focal point with the mane ideally reflecting my use of native grasses or plantings.
For colors, I like Kelly Greens as I am 100% Irish, however surprise me with other color schemes and forms and fonts.
I would like my company name to be prominently featured in the Design, Landscape By Lyons.
