    Last winter you guys gave some great suggestions to improve my website overall and for just the plowing season, so here it is, tell me what you think now.

    Looks real good. :waving: I especially like the use of the trend to background images. The only suggestion I'd make is that I'd have to wonder about potential customer's reaction to having "too much" on the site where you started pushing your design and your wife's photography businesses. You might want to put your training and experience in landscaping before your training at RIT/Design. But, really, that's just me and I see things from an old-time perspective.

    Couple of grammatical errors:

    "Commercial properties will appreciate the level of service GML provides. Accounts are kept to a minimum so snow accumulation will not get out of hand. Salt services combined with plowing insure your lot will stay as clean as possible. Close attention is paid to the weather forecast, if the temperature drops below freezing and is expected to stay, salt is applied as an added measure of safety. Handicap parking spaces receive extra attention. GML is just a phone call away and will gladly perform special requests within a timely manor. Commercial properties will be serviced within a 5 Mile radius of Headquarters. Season contracts start at $85/trip + $5.71 p/bag of salt."

    Suggest a period after "weather forecast" and start a new sentence. Also "timely manor" should be "timely manner". A manor is a dwelling place like a house. These are kind of picky but think about putting "owners" after "Commercial properties". Then change "insure" to "ensure" (the attention and plowing ensure, not insure the condition of the lot).
