    i like it...nice stripes by the way....

    getting picky here but it always looks not as good to have 2 seperate numbers for 2 differant people.

    Use 1 number and maybe try another color. The red is not pleasing to me and draws my eyes elsewhere. Make the number bigger because they will need to write it down.

    I like it though. Good luck!!

    change the background of the card or the color of Coachs Lawn service. Green on green just doesn't work for me at all. Try a white background, yellow background

    I don't like the psuedo script of Professional Lawn Maintenance, it looks like it was written in crayon. Also why have it say "Professional" If you handed me a business card or I saw your advertising I would assume you are a professional unless otherwise indicated by poor design or layout.

    Doctors don't put Professional Plastic Surgeon on their card. We shouldn't either. By saying you are a professional it tells me you aren't or think you need to prove it.

    I agree with the one number thing and why the > after call? I don't get that.

    The lawn looks nice and the picture in the oval gives a good focus on the lawn, although the bottom has a grey bar, Why?

    I apologize if you didn't want a real critique. I know I would want someone to point out anything they didn't like. At least that way I could evaluate each item.

    Change the writing to yellow and white. Those two colors attract attention, especially on a green background.
    I personally would take off Bi-weekly Mowing
    Otherwise looks good.

    Change the color of the phone numbers to white, and justify that line to the left. Take out the >.

    I would definately change the color of "Coaches Lawn Care". Try white letters with a black outline. I also agree the font looks like it was done by a child. The green on green does not work.
    - Just my two cents :)

    I like the green on green fade.
