Might as well critique mine also.

Hey guys, I am finally getting around to finishing my site but now I decided to redo it all. If anybody has any pointers for better design or content please let me know. I have a few pics I will be adding to the site of my work. My web link is in my signature. Thanks in advance.

Looks good I like the basic design, easy to navigate. Include some pics of your work.

Thanks DA. I was wanting to add pics of my work but make a statement about "pictures are from Tech in the field, not professional photography" Because the photos were done by me from iphone and they look like it. I am going for simple and easy to navigate but think I am going to make it less blocky. I also plan on putting my 6 step fert program up and specials. I am also thinking of making the contact us page a comment box that sends straight to my email where people can post questions w or w/o pics. ex- What is this spot in my lawn? pic added. It would be for current customers only.

I like the services page. The marketing research says that threes work best online, which you have. The research also shows that the threes work better side by side then one on top of the other, tho.

Thanks, I am totally revamping it. Luckily my roommate knows how to do this stuff. I just sit there with him and let him know how I want it. Do you guys think that when I add these temporary photos I should put a line in that says something like "Picture was taken by actual tech in the field"? They arent professional photos but I wont have decent ones until April-May but the temps will hold a place until the new ones are available.

absolutely. plus that way people will know that they are actual photos of your work and aren't just photos lifted from some where else.

If you want to take advantage of organic search, make sure your revamp has coded text and not as you currently have (the text laid on photos via whatever graphic software you're using.)
