    Change the background to white
    Put a simpler smaller picture that doesn't cover the background
    Try to improve the slogan so it doesn't sound so blunt and add " marks
    add, My Services: then list them with bullets

    ... just some of my ideas.

    In the post card I would mention how you are a solely operated business because you provide great relationships with your customers, and that you offer a variety of lawn care needs. I wouldn't just make a big list right in the middle of the card like you have.

    Also I would agree with somebody else and that you should shorten your website address to abbreviations or something because nobody is going to remember that. Just to type it in I found myself referring to the card like 5 times. I know that they should keep your card if they thought they would be interested at a later date, but maybe if you gave them a catchy website they would remember it and use it after the card is gone. Its just a thought.

    On your website I would either use Me or One Crazy Kaujun or how you spelled it. Because your website is inconsistent, one minute it says "me" and next it says the business name. I would stick with one or the other, and if you think your USP is personal customer relationships, then I would stick with me.

    Well there is my $.02
