It's blurry, has spelling errors and Free Mowing? To blue in my opinion for a lawn site.

The layout is decent, but, I would make your header shorter and include a logo/text as a layer over the image. And perhaps too blurry? Maybe just blur a strip along the bottom or something...the layout is nice and simple though, so good choice on that. I like the contact form too.

I don't like to be critical, but start over. Sounds more desperate than professional. Refer to the company not your name, makes you sound small and desperate. A free mowing, wow, not really what people are looking for. They want a sound long term professional, that will take care of their needs at a reasonable price. Show some pictures of your work, not an focus limited picture of grass cut at different heights. Show the big picture, what you have to offer and how you can make life better for them. Just trying to be truthful. They want someone dependable and professional. Not freebies and your personal information. Tell them you can make the lawn a non issue for them because you have that covered (professionally).

Instead of putting weed eating, (because I'm 100% sure the trimmer does not gobble up the pieces of grass) put trimming. And please do not put WeED Wackin'!!!!! Nothing sounds more unprofessional than that.

It's a start. I think you need to work out the css and colors. Fix the spelling errors if there are any. If you need any help, hit me up via the link in my signature below.

I agree with all of the comments above, Definitely loose "weed eating" change to "trimming".
On your home page below your "free mowing" statement. Contact is misspelled = contat us
If you would like to put your personal information, add an "about us" page and move it there.
On your Mulch/Stone "mulches" should be Mulch benefits plant growth. I'm pretty sure mulch can't be plural.
If you want to have a "free mowing" program, I would recommend changing it to a referral program and add free mowing to that page.
Just my honest opinion, but it's a great start. Best of luck.

Not bad, I would put a logo in your header image, and make the image itself about a quarter of its present size.

I do like that you don't use the colour green for everything--it gets a bit tiresome that every landscape company uses green. I would also make the font on the links tab a bit larger. And maybe put a picture of your self on the site--so people know who to expect when they meet you in person.
