Objective: Centered content text makes for a difficult read. We're just not conditioned to read this way.
Subjective: I don't think the grass background is working well. It's a bit dark, a bit overwhelming, and it doesn't create any real definition for your banner image.
You'll want to see how your site looks in the three main browsers. In Chrome, your menu's right side is approximately 5px short of the banner image. In IE and Firefox, it's fine.
If you haven't done so, read up on the Beginners SEO Guides and understand how to effective write page TITLEs, etc.
Get your local info on there. Contact info (NAP), service areas, etc.
do you know of any places where i can get a free background that is good res? Also that's a problem i'm having, trying to figure out how to get the headers to be responsive. It's being pretty difficult to work with at the moment. Also i'll change the centered text.
