Part of our jobs here at is to pass along ideas and products we think will save you money and make your lawn care business even more successful.

Somedays, those product and ideas are not strictly lawn care related. Today is such a day.

Logos are really important to lawn care companies. A bright white enclosed trailer with a clear eye-catching logo painted on the side brings much more attention than just a phone number with no logo at all. A properly designed logo is some of the best advertising you can do.

In the effort of saving money, many LCOs design their own logos. I have tried to design logos on several occasions. Sometimes I can do it and sometimes I can’t. One things that always gets in my way is my ability to use graphic design programs. Using the tools in those programs is very helpful but it is still difficult to make lines and circles do exaclty what you want them to when you are only using a keyboard and a mouse.

Recently, I found a great product that will help even the most artistically challenged of us get the full use of our graphic design software.

I found the Bamboo Drawing Tablet on a few weeks ago. A drawing table lets you use a pen and an electronic tablet to make your designs straight into your computer design software. The tablet provides direct input of your drawings and gives you the control of pencil and paper.

If you are interested in designing your own logos, please consider purchasing one of these drawing tablets. It will save you lots of time and aggravation.
