Well.... you asked!

Hi Tom

I looked at your site & would offer you a few suggestions...

1) First and foremost, reverse your background and font colors, nothing will cook peoples eyes faster than white text on a black background.... it might look good, but but from the perspective of usability it is a really bad idea.

2) Get more text on that front page, get your services right up front on your main page.. it will assist with keyword density when it comes to the search engines, and your home page is way to bare.... photos are great, but a perspective client has to get you your site FIRST, and its text that is indexed by search engines NOT photos.

3) This Text adapted from the home page : "Twin Oaks is a full service nursery, garden center and landscaping company in Ruston, North Louisiana. We are here to help you with your trees, shrubs, seasonal color, pesticides, fertilizers. We are also a full service florist." Should be located on the top of the browser window rather than just "Twin Oaks Nursery" as it is now ...replace "Twin Oaks Nursery" with the sentence above, it will result in much better search engine placement.... FYI also add the names of the main cities you service!
