    Need help with a domain name idea.

    I've been trying to create a new for a new forum community I'm going to build in the coming months.

    I'd love to get the input of the very creative people here, if you'd be so kind, to help me think of a name.

    This forum is going to be for the landscaping industry - companies that design and install residential and commercial projects, ranging from lawn care, to tree and shrub installation and maintenance, to brick paver walks, patios, drive and stone, and modular retaining walls.

    Part of the discussion will undoubtedly revolve around the equipment used for such endeavors, as well as non-production topics such as accounting, marketing, sales, HR issues and the like.

    Please help!

    Some of the names I've come up with so far are:

    Spadefuls.com

    TheGreenBrick.com

    Shovelmouth.com

    I'm not particularly attached to any one them. And I don't think I even like 'Shovelmouth' - sounds like a place TO USE ALL CAPS. And that's not what I want.

    Thank you.

    I kind of like shovelmouth... but it probably isn't the best for your idea...

    The only one that I came up with that I liked even a little bit was:

    LandscapeThis.com

    Hopefully some "creative" people come around and help you

    Best of Luck,

    Good stuff!

    While the site will be focused on the green industry, I intend for there to be very little emphasis on lawn care or lawn maintenance. I didn't do a good job of explaining that the first time.


    So I'd like the name to revolve more around hardscapes and softscapes, like brick paving, retaining walls, arbors, trees, shrubs, groundcovers, perennials, lawn installation (seed or sod)etc.

    It also will encompass the tools of the trade, with discussions of anything from hand shovels up to 10 ton excavators.

    Keep 'em coming!

    Variety of "e-scape" "escape" names:

    escapeforum(s)

    e-scape-forum(s)

    e-scaping.biz and e-scaping.info are still free, or , add 'forum(s)'

    forumscape: .com is taken, but the others are still free.

    dishthedirt - only biz and info are free, or add 'forum(s)'

    ...And my favourite:

    off-topiary

    or something similar.

    I have to apologize - I lost track of this thread and didn't realize there were still people posting new ideas.

    Thank you very much for your input; I've looked over some nifty ideas and decided on www.GroundTradesXchange.com. A little tough to type in, but I'm a fan of having a descriptive name for my bizzes.

    Thanks again for your input, and sorry for the faux pas.

    Ok, ok.

    I was telling a bit of a white lie - the name was decided and I've held a contest on Palmer's cool new site DesignOutpost.com for a logo. Rabbitdog won the contest with a wonderful design. Here it is:

    She's also working on a nice template for me (but I'm helping!!)

    Thanks Jeff. Looking forward to seeing it in your new site when it's complete. Liz did a great job on that logo.
