I have a mulch kit on the mower, but I see how it could look bad. Actually the website is still under construction and these are just placeholders for the time being.

Thanks for the feedback, did not even notice it.

Its just wayyyy to basic, The backround just looks like green wallpaper. All the pages are the same except for the different wording. Your facebook link in the bottom right doesnt fit inside that little box. your links on the top of the page should be caps not lower case letters. home, contact marcus ,the man behind the mower.

And as stated the pic of you mowing right next to the kid is a huge red flag.

Thanks for this info, that is much more constructive criticism than "Its a pretty terrible looking website if im being honest."

I did not expect to get such negative feedback on the picture with my son and I in it. I will be pulling that down and putting something else in its place.

Again I truly thank you for the positive constructive criticism.

No problem man, Its just gonna take some time to smooth it all out and make it nice, Its clear you just picked a basic templet and added your wording to it as well as a few pictures.

Your best bet it is to start searching other landscaper websites and get a few ideas from each one you like and try and add them to your site till your happy with it.

If it's one thing you'll get from us it's constructive criticism and the occasional faint praise. lol

Goldpro gave you some good feedback, and I honestly didn't bother after you said it's just a placeholder. If you go back through this board, you'll see a lot of feedback that can apply to any site, so definitely give a read to the posts where others ask for reviews.

With Wordpress, definitely use Pages and not Posts for your site's non-blog content (the home page looks like a Post, given the old date, while the others appear to be Pages).
