    How d'you like??? :D I did it all myself took an estimated 10-15 hrs to build it all and I'm not an expert webmaster but I had one nearby the whole time to help as needed.
    What do you think?
    Thanks

    Nice site, only thing I see off hand is the font is difficult to read. It sure is fancy looking but not practical.

    Eric, I think the site looks good. The only thing I dont care for on web sites are the frames. They eat your viewing space right up. Then you have to scroll through everything. I think the font looks okay, but it could be more practical like ksland states. Anyway hope you had a good xmas, new year and good luck with the site.

    Thanks guys. I really like that font and it is easy to read once you get into it. I don't have a problem with changing it but it just seems to have the right look about it. Pilotcoplawnboy - Some parts if you will notice are short enough it doesn't matter about the frames and other parts are so long that it wouldn't matter because you'd have to scroll anyway. I do see what you mean but I'm not sure it is that big of a problem. I like it so far and have too much time and effort into it to change all that now. How do you like the content of it? I think it takes around 15 minutes to go through the whole site, not too long but I think it gives enough information right? The coupons and client login keep the customer coming back to the site...
    oh yes later I am going to put the pictures in an album like thing so you can view as a slide show or manually change pics one at a time instead of viewing all at once.
    Thanks
    Eric

    I dont like the coupon page because the bground color is different. But I understand you have to because you want the customer to print it and not have a big green page to print:(

    I am just knit picking really, all in all its a great site and everyone will give you little preferences that each person likes.

    Eric,

    All looks good except this line
    Mulching the grass clippings do not add to thatch build-up, contrary to popular belief.
    Should read either "Mulched grass clippings...." or change the word "do" to "does".
    Other than that for a very young entrepeneur, KUDOS!! Good luck for a profitable New Year!!

    Thanks Bob, musta missed that! Had to smile when I read the last line! Thanks! I worked hard on it. When I showed it to my mom she said she was happy to see I was using my writing skills on it to make it smooth. I can occasionally miss little things though ;)
    Thanks,
    Eric

    Landman-which pics you referring to? Several of those pics are on my property which is very hilly and with the stripes it might play tricks with your eyes into thinking it is level ground with crooked stripes. Is that it? I know on that one pic looking upto the house it is alittle crooked in that one spot.. all in all I think they are straighter than quite a few I have seen on the net and around here. But I always try to do it better!
