    I would go with McMillan Landscaping. In my opinion, it's the McMillan that people would use in referring to your business. For new customers, landscaping conjures the full range of services.

    On advertising use a catch phrase for whatever service you are offering at the top, then in the bottom contact info, list your company name. Sell the service, not your company name. That is unless your company name means something to non-customers. ie You sponsor a radio show or are the local expert on landscaping, etc. Sell the service!
