This will come from a visual perspective mainly...as I do not understand the background of a website.

I think it looks good...it's clean and appears functional. I would get your favcon logo at the top...the same way lawnsites' appears.

I actually like your pictures. I know exactly what you do and the work you've done looks impressive.

- due to the screen real estate taken up by your banner and the main pic, i'd suggest having the main pic change from page to page. as it is, if someone has less than ideal screen resolution, there are no visual cues that the page actually changed when a banner link has been clicked due to the main body being so far down.

- have a second set of eyes proof your copy.

- the white text on teal'ish background color becomes a bit tedious to read in long swaths.

- i would try to better define your contact form. as it's currently laid out, it looks much longer than it actually is, or needs to be. on this laptop, it's 1.5 screens of contact form on every page.

- pictures look better than many of the sites we see. only suggestions i would make is to clean up some of the washed out images with your image editor of choice, as well as adding a bit more written context of what each picture shows.

Agreed. Make it smaller and only on the home page. If someone is on a different page there should only be a logo saying "request a quote" or "make an appointment"

Your stonework pictures look pretty bad. The joints are all different sizes and it looks like the stone was not culled at all. It looks like every piece large and small was thrown down and used. You need to get a mason with some artistic skill. I would remove all of the stonework pictures. Especially the path that goes right up against the root flare of the tree's.

Things like laying grass are also not website worthy pictures. A bunch of pictures of mulch and grass do not belong on a website if you are trying to impress clients with your skill set.
