    Besides the very few pictures, its all 1 dimensional and Black and White. Kind of boring if you ask me.

    Yes I agree with the colors. It needs to be more "lively". The template is fine I would just change to a more vibrant color. Vivid colors will ad to the site. :D

    Thanks for the responses. About the colors, my truck is black, signs are black and white, trailer is black, business cards are white with black letters and Tee shirts will be light gray with black lettering. I was trying to stick with the same color theme. Maybe I could try a different backround color. Thanks again.:)

    keep it simple. If those are your colors, that is fime. If people are really researching your company, they will look for content and info about your company not what colors you are using. people understand we are not webmasters. as you go on, you will find more pictures to add and additional info.

    the one thing I would change is put the about us button near the top, as that is what most people want to read about. also compact more information into one heading rather than a button for each topic. Like make a button for our services then list your mowing and mulch and irrigation or whatever. That's about all I have.

    I did change a color on it. I think it looks better, my wife and family agree also. About the buttons, this is a free template from promagazine.com and thats how it is. I wanted to have a button for services and then list everything, but it didn't work that way. I can't complain, free templates and free hosting with e-mail. Thanks for the comments. I really appreciate them.

    John,

    Other than adding pictures, I think its a great description of the services you provide. I too will shortly be looking into Pro's offer of a webpage. Anyone interested in a LCO will find your site easy to understand & follow without feeling like they're getting a sales pitch. Very professional & conceise. I'm sure it'll serve you well & I wish you much luck w/ it.

    I think you need a logo up at the top of your page. it does look pretty plain. but the rest looks great. did you make the pictures blurry or is that the way they came out.
