Looking for feedback on my company logo

Can anyone give me some feedback on my logo? I did this myself with some help from another site. Thanks!

Honestly I think you have too much going on there. How will you get that embroidered on shirts?

What all services do you provide, just lawn care?

Keep it simple and memorable.

I think it looks fine, but it might feel like a bad decision once you decide to get some shirts printed up, or vinyl printed for your truck. Maybe it won't be that bad though. Personally, I think smaller and simpler is better, but really there's nothing bad about it- except the printing issue.

Here's an idea: Show it to a print shop or two (one that does shirts and stuff, one that does signs) and see how they feel about it.

BTW, I had my logo designed professionally, and it was the best money I've spent since.

Make sure you get a CMK of it and they should be able to say print/ sow just the house and just do some lettering under that

Agreeing with the others, I think there is just too much "busy" going on and, sorry, but it does look like a DIY logo done in MS Paint. If you haven't test printed it, I would do so in one that's sized for a business card and you'll see the issues it presents.

Regarding the business name and phone number rendering, it seems detached from the main logo component of the house. There's just no real integration. As for the font, I really would never recommend Comic Sans for business use. Besides it not having the weight to "support" the artwork above it, it's perceived as the joke of the design world.

Thank you all. I've got someone working on a new one for me. I'll post it once its complete for feedback.
