That's too long, and you'll regret picking it later on i think. you want something that will fit nicely on business cards, on the side of your truck maybe, and will be easy to print for advertising.
A lot of people will use their last name, or even incorporate their intials into their business name. I personally don't like anything corny or a play on words, but that's just me. The best thing to do is sit down and play around with a bunch of different ideas, write them down on paper, and before you know it, you'll be able to narrow it down to just one.

The most common mistakes in naming small business:
- Too long of a name
- A name that does not reflect the services you offer
- A name you think is cute, but is misinterpreted or offending to customers.

Good article:

I don't know what your user name stands for but what about "Greentime Lawn Service or Landscaping".
