I'm not a technical website guy. I know more about content.
Photos are good but I would leave off the two showing leaves removal.
Leaves there and then leaves gone. Not much to see. Besides, the leaves gone
photo shows a home and lawn that are not up to the quality of your other photos.

In your last two services listing, you have a spelling error.
It's not "instillation;" it should be "installation."

I like it!. I think it looks great. Easy to find the phone number and contact you. Pictures are good and the about us and services page are nice and descriptive.

I do see more people making their about us page their home page. Give the information people need right on the first landing page, so they don't have to make an extra couple of clicks to see your about us page and services page.

People could land on your site from google and instantly see your service areas and services you provide.

I'm still seeing some issues that I'm pretty sure I addressed in your previous request post (late last year, iirc). In the spirit of efficiency, what changes have you made?

From a visual standpoint, I think you could use a bit of font work. Small, compact, bold is a tough read. If you increase the size to, say, 15px, there is much better readability. On the same train of thought, the small, bold font, this time italicized, used on your Services page is a visual struggle. If you load that page, scroll down to your services content, sit back, and just look at it, do you see something that's easy to read or do you maybe see something akin to visual "noise"?

One concern I have is that I still don't have a handle on what you're doing with your branding. Your new logo, which I've seen you're actively promoting via signage, shirts, etc, is nowhere to be found...unless I go to your Contact page, scroll down, and find a (to my eyes) odd way of integrating in to your site.

I can not get it to form to my site.. So that's why. It has a white background and sticks out like a sore thumb I think with the page being a different color but I might stick it up there like that I juts figured with its white background it doesn't look professional on the site.

Head over to fiverr and have someone make background transparent in Photoshop for you

I still think you should have put the globe thing in the zero lol

You just need the logo saved as a transparent .png. If you don't have the ability to do that, send me your master file (I assume it's a .psd or .ai) and I'll do it for you.

And you'll probably want to go with the horizontal layout that you used on your truck signage.

I think you have some aesthetic issues with your template vs. the crisp, modern look of your logo. Basically, the busy header background doesn't work with it.

I did a bit of in-browser playing to get your logo up there so you can see where it should be, as well as what I mean by the stylistic clash.
