Seems very "run of the mill" if you know what I mean. Design doesn't really fit the purpose of the site.

And then there are the obvious coding errors, so you know what is coming. :)


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

Thanks for the critique. This is the first attempt at a website and I didnt spend a whole lot of time working on it... will go back and correct some things as time allows. I am new to all this so I dont really know how to do it all.

For a first attempt and not knowing what you are doing, you did fine. We learn through trial and error.

I agree with Krill, it looks generic and doesn't do a good job of convincing anyone to use your services. You need some nice landscape photos. You need to talk more about why someone should use you. It is better than no website and it isn't terrible. Actually it is good for a first attempt. As good as you did not that you can do better. Look at other lawn sites and think about how they impress you and what you like and don't like about them then work on it some more.

excellent... thanks again... as i said, this was a first attempt and really just improvised. I will re-do some stuff and let you know when it is done again.
