After finally getting tired of looking at our outdated site, I decided to update it (in stages when I have some free time).

www.qualitylawncare.biz

Let me know what you think so far. The new pages have a greenish background, and the old ones have a black background.

sweet website, the beginning bores me though, i read about 3 lines and skimmed the rest, otherwise, it's really cool.
I suggest shortening up the front page to about 4 lines, otherwise, it's a great website, good job

Sorry, you get the automated response, which seems to be the norm for site builder sites.

1) Code is not valid. Please validate!!

HTML: http://validator.w3.org/
CSS: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

2) Mixture of hardcoded style, inline style, linked style is a NIGHTMARE.
Separation of style and content is the recommended way to maintain your code.

3) Limited or no document structure/outline

4) Limited or no accessibility compliance

WCAG/Sec508: http://www.cynthiasays.com/fulloptions.asp


In addition to the above:

5) You menu system needs work, especially in the services section

6) Estimate page, and other non-matching pages should be the same design as the rest of the site.

7) Some layout problems that should be addressed

Should put some updated pics on there.

Maybe the fleet of Internationals and F550s and such?

1-4 makes no sense to me. Can you open all of the pages? I'm a landscaper, not a computer wizz. If the pages open and potential clients can read them, that's all I'm concerned about.

5- What part of the menu needs work?
6- I know some of them haven't been updated. That's written in my original post.
7- Layout problems such as?

That is what items 1-4 address

Your list of services (eg in page menu) is not persistent, it should be.

7- Layout problems such as?

Content wider than your header.
