Very nice job. Wordpress seems to be the CMS to use these days I like all of your content and your gallery is very nice. Keep up the good work.

Real nice, only one thing. Your catchy phrase "we go the extra mile, one yard at a time" is hard to see with the green font on the black heading. I"m just thinking it should stand out.

I am definitely excited about this new website. I switched from godaddy to blue host. Their web mail is not as user friendly as godaddy, but it works. I learned the hard way that I couldn't get where I wanted to be with their service and what they had to offer. Besides the obvious, what is the benefit of having a blog, who would access this? Current customers? How would new customers find this?

There was a little boy that had a tree branch fall on top of his head during hurricane sandy in October. This happened at his day care. He had a very slim chance of survival, however he has surpassed the odds and is making great strides of progress. There had been a few companies in our home town where this happened doing fundraisers and it struck me that I could help out as well. The funds will go to help the parents be by his side at the hospital. It is my understanding that the day cares insurance isn't responsible. I have raised over $700.00 for the family so far. When you ask how it's helped my business, I typically go and do the donation work, and I have had on a few occasions customers asking for estimates on additional services. It's a good feeling to know that I'm helping out a family in this crazy unfortunate situation. I have a 2 year old, which is the age of Tripp and also a 9 year old. I couldn't imagine being in their position. Definitely hits home for me.

I do agree. I have some other changes I am going to be making. I should have my new logo, I thought it would've been done today but it wasn't. Soon as I get that I'm going to have the web guy change other things too all at once.

It took forever to load. Have you run any speed test on it?

These work well but do not take all of it to heart
