It's blurry, has spelling errors and Free Mowing? To blue in my opinion for a lawn site.

OK,
The layout is decent, but, I would make your header shorter and include a logo/text as a layer over the image. And perhaps too blurry? Maybe just blur a strip along the bottom or something...the layout is nice and simple though, so good choice on that. I like the contact form too.

I don't like to be critical, but start over. Sounds more desperate than professional. Refer to the company not your name, makes you sound small and desperate. A free mowing, wow, not really what people are looking for. They want a sound long term professional, that will take care of their needs at a reasonable price. Show some pictures of your work, not an focus limited picture of grass cut at different heights. Show the big picture, what you have to offer and how you can make life better for them. Just trying to be truthful. They want someone dependable and professional. Not freebies and your personal information. Tell them you can make the lawn a non issue for them because you have that covered (professionally).

Instead of putting weed eating, (because I'm 100% sure the trimmer does not gobble up the pieces of grass) put trimming. And please do not put WeED Wackin'!!!!! Nothing sounds more unprofessional than that.

It's a start. I think you need to work out the css and colors. Fix the spelling errors if there are any. If you need any help, hit me up via the link in my signature below.

I agree with all of the comments above, Definitely loose "weed eating" change to "trimming".
On your home page below your "free mowing" statement. Contact is misspelled = contat us
If you would like to put your personal information, add an "about us" page and move it there.
On your Mulch/Stone "mulches" should be Mulch benefits plant growth. I'm pretty sure mulch can't be plural.
If you want to have a "free mowing" program, I would recommend changing it to a referral program and add free mowing to that page.
Just my honest opinion, but it's a great start. Best of luck.

Not bad, I would put a logo in your header image, and make the image itself about a quarter of its present size.

I do like that you don't use the colour green for everything--it gets a bit tiresome that every landscape company uses green. I would also make the font on the links tab a bit larger. And maybe put a picture of your self on the site--so people know who to expect when they meet you in person.

A great start. Here are some thoughts:

"Our ideal goal" is waaaaaay too passive for a business. Show some commitment.

Counting the page title, your company's name is visible 8 times on the home page. VERY redundant.

On the SERVICES page, don't tell them to call after each paragraph. Put it at the top or bottom of the page in bold. Also, I would try to condense your description to as few words as possible - or you'll lose them before they reach the bottom.

Put your company logo on your image above the menu.

YOU NEED A PAGE TITLE AND KEYWORDS!!! You are also not indexed with google as of this post-meaning your site does not exist to Google. Here is your <HEAD> code

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Allstar Lawncare - Webster NY 14580</title>
<link href="twoColHybLtHdr.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<!--[if IE]>
<style type="text/css">
/* place css fixes for all versions of IE in this conditional comment */
.twoColHybLtHdr #sidebar1 { padding-top: 30px; }
.twoColHybLtHdr #mainContent { zoom: 1; padding-top: 15px; }
/* the above proprietary zoom property gives IE the hasLayout it may need to avoid several bugs */
</style>
<![endif]--></head>

IF you have access to this page I Would Add the following code in your <HEAD> section here are my keyword and setup use no more than 15 keywords and less than 200 characters for your description.

Hey JDutcher, do exactly what Blue2000 said and of course spell check, and maybe shrink down that header graphic a whisker. If you need a hand with that graphic, resizing the image and or file size I'll be happy to do that for you.

I would add local keywords to the content on your home page like "lawn care New York" "lawn service new york" and incorporate them in to the articles on the front page.

Here is your header code:

<meta name="description" content="M&amp;B LAWNCARE &amp; LANDSCAPES - ASHLAND, KY. &quot;BIG BUSINESS QUALITY, SMALL BUSINESS PRICING&quot;. Landscaping Services">

<meta name="keywords" content="M&amp;B LAWNCARE &amp; LANDSCAPES, Landscaping Services, ASHLAND, KY">


I would make your description clean Like "Brevard Lawns is your complete online solution for all of your lawn care needs in Melbourne, Brevard County Florida. Visit us Today! melbourne lawn care, melbourne fl, melbourne lawn care fl, viera lawn care, brevard lawn care"

Add key words to the end of your description like my above example:
