When you're done, I'd be happy to give some thoughts. The "toying around" aspect gives me pause as I could write 1,000 words and each could be met with "Yeah, I know. I just haven't done it yet.". On-site SEO, content, etc are all things that could elicit that response.

Overall, it looks great but, to me, it feels a bit cold and more online company and less local lawn & landscape service provider. The Products section is one of those that makes me not understand the scope.
I know lawn & landscape marketing, branding, and web strategy. I'm not anonymous, I just don't self-promote.

Thanks for the reply.

I understand where your coming from in not wanting to comment on something that is incomplete.

The products section is what I am toying around with and will tie into a how to section.

Nice site. It was difficult to scroll up or down on an ipad. You might think about rewording the 2nd sentence in "fertilizing" (People will......lawns go). Some folks may get defensive (because it's true) when they read it. Maybe replace it with more on why fertilizer is needed.

First I would get rid of the pictures scrolling up top. Everyone will know they aren't yours and the one with the clock just doesn't make sense.

Second having all the pricing for the products doesn't seem like a great idea as all your competitors know what you charge and can double check right away and give a lower quote.

Don't know how I feel about the whole "our friends" thing. I get and support what you're doing re: the local business community, but it seems like you're creating a prominent incentive right on your home page for prospects to click off your page.
