it is nice, other than the suggestions aobut your video, maybe you want to make it a part of the homepage, but not the homepage. also, the description of the fert and weed control services is pretty incorrect. you are def NOT applying SAFE fert and weed control. the only thing near that is total organic, and even that is not considered safe as it is concentrated. i highly suggest you modify that as i think it is misleading, incorrect and may(dont quote me) be illegal to say the word safe and pesticides in the same sentence.

pluses though, i like you background and itis eye appealing.

Personally, I like the services page better than the home page.

No delay waiting for load time, and more information ready to go.

The video is sort of blurry anyway in some parts. It might look better smaller. Like 1/3 the width and part of the home page.

if i was you i'd get rid of the video. if people dont have the right plug ins or and old computer or are looking at your site threw a smart phone i.e. iphone or blackberry nothing comes up but a blank square. not the first impression you want
