It looked pretty good. I wouldn't name your testimonials page "guestbook", maybe just testimonials. You can easily make online forms for free at www.jotform.com Would definitly reccomend that for any forms. You can even set up free text messages when someone completes the form. Other than that, it's pretty good!

I like your before and after photos

Your header shows up with a slide bar on the right on my small monitor. I don't think that's what you are looking for.

thanks guys,

Ive been thinking about offing the guest book page, Services and contact us, and then Have

Home, Landscaping, Excavating, Lawn Care & Maint, project photos

and the contact us form on front page, then have the customer testimonials on another linked page.

I got to get some logo work done, and that will end the scrolling header.

You could probably put one together yourself in a half hour with photoshop or similar software.

was told at another place that I needed to make my phone number more eye catching, but I don't think that is what they was talking about either. I actually didn't think it would blink I just put <blink> before the text lol

The blinking coming soon under will disappear soon when I replace that with a Lawn service add & my 4 step lawn treatment (not chem)

it will come together sooner or later.... more than likely later but tweaked till then.

maybe a different font, or bold, or italicized, or black outline around the numbers, or you could add a phone icon in front of it...

anything but flashing! (maybe i'm prejudiced, but flashing stuff on websites really bother me)

even worse are the sites that have an icon follow your cursor around! pretty funny tho.

there's a great website called webpagesthatsuck, that has some really funny examples of bad websites. it's a hoot.
