    Way to simple ... unless there is more you plan to add below the picture.

    No one will know what the "GLS" stands for ... and the most important thing other then that is a phone number.

    People have to know how to get a hold of you.

    It is a start though ...

    Hi Greenlee
    i was just playing around & came up with this
    you could add a mower or other graphic if you wanted. right now your logo is to busy & hard to read. consider moving the mower off to the side if you feel you have to have it. I have seen negative comments about other logos that had push mowers as opposed to larger, professional mowers. Do you want to convey the image that you are a little company or a bigger more professional company. Just my observation. I have been working as a graphic designer for 16 years & have seen a lot of good & bad logos.
    the most important things are
    1. professional appearance
    2. easy to read & comprehend
    3. pleasing to the eye, does it make a positive statement
    4. no more than 3 colors for most applications (1 or 2 color is usally best)

    I am not knocking you. it was a good start.

    Much better ... now you have name recognition, and a number for prospective customers to get a hold of you.

    I'll see if I can work something up this weekend too.

    Thanks a lot for the help with this guys.

    I put Caruso's logo on the website, and asked my mother which logo she liked the best, and she said that Caruso's was the best bc it stood out more.

    I haven't really decided what colors to use, but I do like the Green and Yellow.

    Caruso, can you make it with my real phone number and send it to me? Thx
