    I like it very much...looks great.

    Personally I would change the sentencing from the resi and commercial pages

    from :

    "From weekly lawn maintenance, to ornamental shrub pruning, to turf fertilization and management we can maintain your property's appearance to your needs, budget, and desires."

    to:

    "From Weekly Lawn Maintenance and Ornamental Shrub Pruning, to Turf Fertilization and Management, maintaining your property's appearance to your needs, budget, and desires is our excellence."

    ....and if you want to keep it the original way...you should add another comma after management.

    :cool:

    In the page title, shouldn't there be a comma after construction and a period after llc.


    And on the contact page, instead of comments, maybe have questions/ comments or services you would like or somethin other than that. Also you should make first and last name and zip a required field.

    Also at The bottom of the page where you have service areas, instead of commas, do bullets. The code is &#149. I believe

    Jared,

    In the about us section you should talk up education and expierience. Put your face up there too. If I remember right you did some school time with the kid we hired this year. People like to know they're dealing with an educated and expierienced contractor.

    Just my 2 cents......

    Also I need somebody out your way who is willing to help me out as back up salter or to take a few ice patrols through the year. My original plan for taking care of that office park isn't looking great and I need some insurance.

    I'd say just as filler until he can grab an action shot of one of his trucks lettered and plowing.

    OK thanks a ton!!!

    Like that idea I will make change.

    Who's the kid?? I think I may know who he is, if its him all I can say is good luck hahaha

    PM me, all i have at moment is a tailgate buddy has two 2.5cu yd'rs and a 10yd s/a dump with tailgate spreader

    Because the one with the Chevy and Western plow wouldn't have looked good with the stretching needed to make it that width. We paid for the photo, nothing stupid it about it at all IMO

    BINGO. And even if I do get an action shot I will keep that photo, I paid for it. Nothing wrong with using it.

    Nice web site, but...

    How can you assume that you'll surpass all of my needs and expectations before you even know what they are?

    Flash will kill your SEO, Also to help you rank a little better throw a ling in your signature like this
    < a hr e f = www. your site. com> Landscaping Installation Service Company | Sometown | SomeState | < / a >

    Just take the spaces out

    <a href=www. your site. com> L a n d s c a p i n g I n s t a l l a t i o n S e r v i c e C o m p a n y | Sometown | SomeState | </a>
    and you'll get that which will help also put the above txt as your title on the site (the top bar)

    check this one out - <a href=www.louisvilleholidaylighting.com>Holiday Lighting Services Louisville KY</a>

    Notice in the top bar it doesn't say EasyPro it says my key word.



    Nice clean looking site man!
