    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.

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