Looks like to me you have great potential. If your going to do hardscapes and other landscaping adventures then the name RI landscape is great.
However; if you do not plan to get into the landscaping part of the business then I would consider a different name.
Money can be made depending on how you approach your business. I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination but I am just crazy enough to try different ideas.
Make a niche for yourself. Get those around you talking. Nothing can be better. That is the approach I took and now my phone never stops until I turn it off.
You have some good ideas but you have to be different.
