Seems unpolished to me. Maybe add a background other than white. Somehow I viewed 2 different layouts of the home page. On the contact page there are no boxes outlining the fields. I had to mouse around until a hand appeared. I'm using vista if it matters.
Doesn't seem to distinguish you from any other companies. Reading it I could substitute any other name in place of coastal lawn care without invalidating the statements. What is it that you do or results you get that no other company can do?
Wife thinks I'm just in a bad mood.

First page, confusing the name. The logo speaks of Coastal Lawncare, but the first name I see in the middle of the page is Myrtle Beach Lawn and Lanscaping. It seems clearer as one sorts through, but the intial look has the names confused.

Take off the home-owner Scotts spreader, and replace with a commercial grade spreader pic.

Not much, but two quick intial impressions.

Are you asking me that question or saying I should include that in my content?

I think my H1's for the residential and commercial pages are good but can't seem to think of something for the home page with keywords so I just stuck that up there for the time being.

H1 for home page should be your company name, location, keyword. For example: Ima Lawnguy | Chatanooga Landscaping

Can an H1 tag be the first sentence of my content?

Like could I take out the "Myrtle Beach Lawn Care and Landscaping" and make the H1 the first sentence which is "Coastal Lawncare is a full service lawn care and landscaping company serving Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas" but make it the same size and color as the content so it blends right in?

At first I didn't even have an H1 on the home page but stuck that there because I thought it would help with the SEO of my site.

Hmmmm, now I am really confused. Are you saying that you have TWO names for your company:

Costal Lawncare
Myrtle Beach Lawn Care

And, they have different services....?

If this be the case, no wonder the Home page is confusing. A clear distinction needs to be made. If not the case, then only one name should appear.

Sorry, if I have missed something very basic here.
