Lawn Care and Landscaping Logos

In this article, we will talk about the process of research to find a unique idea for a logo, so that it is timeless.

Lawn Care and Landscaping Logos

As the Content Manager for the Landscape Branding Co, I have had the opportunity to work with a talented team of designers and oversee many of our logo design projects for clients in the lawn care and landscaping industry. It’s been an honor to collaborate with so many passionate business owners who are dedicated to creating beautiful outdoor spaces and providing top-notch services to their customers. 

Throughout my time at LBC, I’ve come to understand that a great logo is not just about aesthetics – logo landscape design is a crucial part of a company’s branding and can play a significant role in attracting and retaining customers. A well-designed logo should be able to convey the essence of a business in a simple, memorable way, while also setting it apart from its competitors.

In this article, I will be discussing some of the unique logo designs we’ve created for lawn care and landscaping companies, and the thought process that went into crafting each one. We’ll explore the inspiration behind each design, the unique elements that set them apart, and the technical considerations that went into their creation.

The Logo Design Process​

When designing a landscaping logo for a company, it is important to follow a standard operating procedure (SOP) to ensure that the design process is consistent and produces high-quality results. Following an SOP ensures that our designers approach each project with a structured and effective process, resulting in unique and impactful logos for our clients.


Our approach to logo design involves a thorough research process to gain a deep understanding of the project and brand. By delving into the history and reason for existing, we are able to think outside the box and come up with creative ideas.

Image Buckets

We then create image buckets, which are a collection of ideas based on history, patterns, and textiles related to the project. We believe that no detail is too small and this step allows us to gain a better understanding of the project’s origins.


Next, we move on to stylescapes, where we examine unrelated projects to shape the direction of our own. We explore options such as modern, retro, minimalist, abstract, and more. We curate images and narrow our focus as we progress.

Sketch Ideation

After discussing the stylescapes with the client, we begin sketching potential designs for the project. This is where the idea starts taking form and we are able to bring the client’s vision to life.

Landscape Logo Vector

When designing logos for lawn care and landscaping businesses, it is important to use vector images or rasterized images. Vector images can be enlarged without losing quality, making them ideal for use on large banners or signs. The software that we use for designing logos is Adobe Illustrator, which allows us to create high-quality vector designs that can be resized without any loss of quality.

Landscape Logo Size

It is important to consider the size of a logo when designing it. Small details may look good when the logo is large, but they may be lost when the logo is reduced in size for business cards, promotional pens, or other small applications. At Landscape Branding Co, we take this into consideration when designing logos and make sure that they are scalable to different sizes without losing quality.

Custom Landscape Logo Design

I’m excited to share with you some of the logos we’ve created for landscape companies just like yours. Our goal in designing these logos was to set each one apart by incorporating unique elements and explaining the reasoning behind our design choices.

It’s important to remember that a logo isn’t meant to explicitly convey what a company does. Instead, it’s like a period at the end of a sentence – it signifies the end of one thought and the beginning of another. Your brand is who you are and what you do, and a logo serves as a symbol and representation of that identity.

Terrascapes logo: 3 color use of a shovel and tree to resemble the T for Terrascapes. It uses the handle of the shovel as the trunk of the tree and the shovel impales the ground. Colors are green, brown and grey.

Terrascapes Logo

When we designed the Terrascapes tree landscape logo, we wanted to incorporate the company’s name into the design while still keeping it simple and recognizable. We decided to use a shovel and a tree to form the letter T, with the handle of the shovel serving as the tree trunk and the shovel impaling the ground, but also looking as a planter. The colors green, brown, and grey were chosen to represent nature and the earth.

A 4 color gradient logo with the creativity of the Clover leaf as the O in the word Clover. This is for a landscape company in the city of Cloverfield.

Cloverfield Logo

For the Cloverfield landscaping company, we wanted to create a logo that would stand out and showcase the company’s creativity. We used a four-color gradient and the iconic shape of a clover leaf as the letter O in the word Clover. This design gives the logo a modern and unique feel that is sure to catch the eye.

A 1 one color simple logo with a lawnmower for Frederick Landscaping. The color chosen for this logo is red, the concept came up by taking the word Red found in the name Frederick.

Frederick Landscaping Logo

When Mr. Fredrick contacted us about wanting a lawnmowing logo, he didn’t have any ideas for what it should be. All he knew, or thought he knew, was that it was supposed to be green, but green doesn’t always have to be used when making grass mowing logo. In fact, not using it will separate you from your competition.

The Frederick logo was designed for a lawn care business that wanted a simple and easily recognizable logo. We chose to use a lawnmower as the focal point of the design and incorporated the color red, which is found in the name “Frederick.” This unique design is clean, straightforward, and perfect for a lawn mowing business company that wants to convey a the grass cutting service.

A vintage style logo showing sophistication as the company primarily services country clubs.

Oakmonte Signature Services Logo

Again, the color green was omitted from this design. The Oakmonte Signature Services logo was created for a company that primarily services country clubs. We wanted to create a vintage lawn care logo that would convey a sense of sophistication and elegance. The design features a classic crest shape and incorporates a landscape scene with trees, mountains, and a golf course. This design is perfect for a company that wants to appeal to high-end clients.

This logo depicts a concrete rose to show elegance for masonry work.

Hardscape Gardens Logo

The Hardscape Gardens logo was designed for a masonry company that wanted to showcase their expertise in creating beautiful outdoor spaces. We decided to use a concrete rose as the focal point of the design to convey a sense of elegance and craftsmanship. The hardscape logo we designed for our client flawlessly captures their elegant and modern approach to designing outdoor spaces. It’s perfect for a company that wants to display strength or the bricks while standing out in the  hardscaping industry and showcase their unique touch.

Uses a hedge shear as the letter X in the name Alexander. The image enforces the idea of the gardening service.

Alexander Gardening Logo

When we worked with Mr. Alexander he came to us with simple lawn care logo, yet he identified as a gardener. We came up with a more relevant concept in this garden maintenance logo.

Mr. Alexander was floored when he saw our mockups. We decided to use a hedge shear as the letter X in the name Alexander to reinforce the idea of gardening and landscape maintenance. The new garden approach instead of land design logo is simple yet effective and conveys a sense of professionalism and expertise.


In conclusion, whether you’re looking for an executive style landscape architecture logo or a simple yard service logo; a well-designed logo is essential for any lawn care or landscaping business that wants to stand out in a crowded market. It’s important to remember that the effort you put into your logo will directly reflect on your brand and how it is perceived by potential customers. Cutting corners and using cheap clipart may solve a quick problem, but it won’t create a long-lasting, timeless logo that truly represents your brand. Avoid falling victim to trends and instead focus on creating something unique that truly captures the essence of your business.

At Landscape Branding Co, we specialize in creating unique logos for lawn mowing businesses that help them stand out in their market. We pride ourselves on our ability to take the time to research and understand what is different in each project. This allows us to create unique and effective logos that help our clients build their brand and grow their business. If you are in need of a custom logo for your landscaping company give us a shout.
