I looked through it. Your site appears well thought out, professional and it's not overbearing with too much info. I think my company website has too much info, but I had a web builder set it up. Anyways...

Perhaps a picture to look at on your pages, other than the logo too.

One thing I will be picky about on your About page ...check this
"We will not settle for less THAN the best"

Nice job.

Nice job.
Thanks for the input. I had some of the same thoughts with the pictures its just a matter of coding. I only know how to do so much and I am too cheap to pay someone. But my brother is off of college right now so he may help me. and yes I will change that sentence

Nice and clean I like it, a couple of thoughts for the future: under our services, make them active links and at those links explain what each entails, also pictures are important, great pictures say great things, remember your minds eye has the scene memorized so when you see the picture you see more than is there - you don't want a customer to be thinking - huh!
Never take a picture with your phone, or a cheapo camera there is no depth of field spend some money a a real camera, perferable a digital SLR you will be amazed.

It looks nice but you might think about make your About Us page your home page. You need to make the viewer WANT to know more about you and your work before telling them to check out another page.

It looks good, and different from many.

If anything is odd, it sort of hits me as being rather bright. Not sure if it's because I have a fairly big screen.

Hard to say whether or not it should have a photo, but I'd lean toward figuring out how to add an image even if it was discreet like a watermark.

Clean look. Logo too big. Need a service page, maybe with a drop-down menu. Need more pictures of work, I read "You're Not A Fan" , but forget that Idea....become a fan. Consumers want to see your work, so they can picture that on their property.

You really don't need a photo gallery, you could maybe use photos like you did for the Fall Clean Up service and incorporate that idea with all the services you provide. Plus you can tag the photos with keywords.
You have the basics down, but are lacking the SEO process of what it will take to get your site found.
Google----Google Keyword Tool, that will help you create a optimized page.

MORE? OK.. I don't know where you are located nor do I really know what type of "Lawn Care" services you provide, such as: Lawn Mowing or fertilization, etc.

I can go on & on...but hopefully this can help you get started.

Have you listed your business with any search engines like Google?
