Looks good bro. Did you do it yourself? Or have it done by someone?

So who owns the site when you're on duty?

It's a nice site. I like the simplicity. You may want to tighten up the "green star" on the home page--it looks stretched. You also may want to re-word the sentence structure on your Services page.

Sorry, meant to say company, not site. "BZ Lawn Care is owned and operated by an off duty firefighter" I get what you're saying but that's a really really awkward way of putting it. If you're going to trade off the fact you're on the job, there are better ways to say it.

Also, you may want to tighten up the title that shows up for your home page. When I read it I was trying to figure out why you were sharing your site w/ two other companies, Keller Landscaping and Keller Lawn Care.

Simple web site. But, I don't know how to define, or describe, an "off duty fire-fighter." You have used this term a couple of places, and it makes for confusion. If you are a full-time fire-fighter, that is great. But, to think of a business being owned and operated by an "off duty" one makes no sense. Either you own and operate the business, or you don't. The statements imply that when "on duty" you don't own and operate. I think this is what was asked above.

As an aside, looking at your Service Agreement, a couple of things jumped out. First, why state the price as a "bid?" Why not just simply state the price for these services? A bid implies that the price isn't settled. Also, your first paragraph states the payment must be in a designated place or you will skip for the week. And, you will add $5 for the next service (I hope I got this right). Is this what you really want? Just because somebody does not put out their payment (which can easily happen, and happen often), you will give up the revenue (less $5) for the visit. And, you will return the following week to two weeks' growth. Yes, you will have $5 more, but I think you have used the $5 to cover your fruitless visit, not to cover added work for EOW work.

Maybe I am not understanding what you wish to do, so can be corrected in my understanding.

The selling point behind off duty firefighters is that's who mows the yards, firefighters that are off duty, I don't know if people really care or not but I know it hasn't hurt anything.

The title helps for search engine hits.

And for the service agreement I went to that after my first year of doing monthly payments, people not paying on time, so I switched to day of or monthly in advance, then we got into the issue of people "forgetting" so I added that in as a scare tactic. Since then I have had no issues. I realize it sounds silly but it works for me.
