Landscaping is a verb, not an improper noun. You'll find the your eyes and brain will start you at garden in either place you put it, while still wanting to scan to the right. So put "garden" first and then your brain will take in "landscape".

Well, I put this together real quick?

Looks a lot better, the gardens & landscape is a lot easier to read in that simple text. Play around with the colors and placing of the text to see what you like best. If you look at the leaf though, it appears that the text box for "Garden & Landscape" is cutting off the leaf on the right side of the leaf and making a straight edge.

Add a thin black outline to the outer edge of the leaf.

Take a drop the size one or two on the Garden & Landscape so there's a space between that and your name. Don't let the lower case "p" in landscape over lap your name, move "Garden & Landscape" around enough to keep that from happening. And the colors look good.

Alright thought I would change it up totally. I found this off another website and changed it and made it my own.

I just to figure out how to make it NOT chopping and blurry. I try to shrink it down and it just looks like crap.

Hmmm, I don't love the "HINES" font, and that tree is well...interesting. I would choose a different tree if I were you. It looks pretty good though
