New Website Is Up

Check out the new website for Greenscape Landscaping

Its not totally finished but you can get a feel for it. Some of the pictures need to be changed, some of the small ones are just in there to fill in till I can get our own off another server.

Your website looks great and very colorful. The only thing I would do differently is make the words in your services provided page a little larger. Overall looks great and I hope you have a successful 2005.

it looks good. did you do all those with the 737? the stripes look good on some of them. Do yo have a kiton it. I had to make a kit for mine cause it just didnt stripe the way i wanted. My next ZTR wont be a JD.

Thanks for the feedback LLandscaping, Im going to do just that, (bigger print) As for the stipes, theyre from last season so they were done with either a HD45 with a proslide or a Deere 4100 with a chain striping kit I made. The 737 is this years new addition.. Snow please go away...

looks good, but you made several errors in the image-rendering department, which is a common one:

- if you take your original logo file and convert it to a .gif, it will be smaller and better looking than the .jpg version you are using.
- your thumbnail photos should not be larger files that you force down using html. ie, this image you use is forced down to something smaller and is a dial-up bandwidth chewer: http://www.prideinproperties.com/nc%20lawn.jpg that pic is 34k and 301x175, but you force it to 196x117 through the code. if you used a graphics editor to do this, you can maintain quality and get it to about a 1/4 to 1/3 the file size. not a huge deal in itself, but when you have several pics on a page, it's problematic. looks like the same goes for all of your pics. this is especially true with your 70+k small logo on the rest of the pages. it looks cruddy because of the aforementioned non-gif format as well as the forced resizing through html code.

-same goes for the ill-adviced image usage in place of html text for the contact page. if you want to use an image, use a proper .gif. .jpg is not to be used for flat color images. it's intended use is as a photographic file. this is probably the most common error i see from diy guys on this site. correct this, and the picture images and you're golden. basically, re-do all of your image files...

Thanks Tony. There was alot of trial-and-error going on making this site. Your tips will help alot, I noticed the crummy look of some of the pics I shrunk down. My bandwidth is getting eaten up pretty fast to so ill make those changes Monday

Thanks again.
