    Well, on the gallery page - it says "Happy customers" when it should say happy customers'.

    Other than that (and that fact that it looks rather like a template) I thought it was nice.

    Very clean and organized, and good information about your company. . .

    I will fix it asap...you are right it is very generic you def. get what you pay for I know this but thought I would just see how this works out for me at first then upgrade it to a more elaborate site later and being a solo op. I really cant handle much more work..

    That's one of the WORST sites I've seen. Only 2 houses, and landscaping looks horrible. Are you edging with a blindfold? You have alot to learn grasshopper. You advertise that you are licensed, does that include a pesticide license? Shame on you:hammerhead:

    The gallery bites IMHO.

    Code is almost valid. 2 validation errors that could be easily fixed.

    From a design standpoint, it needs a lot of improvement. To start, I would add some moer color. Something more lively. Also, you should use different fonts in the body of your pages. That arial font is boring and makes me not want to read it. With that said, don't go crazy and make it something unreadable. Just try and make it appealing. Also, in the contact page, make the link to your email a different color that the rest of the text so that it stands out. And the bottom copyright, where it says "surfside", make that a link to your homepage.

    I would absolutely change that banner you have at the top of the pages. It has nothing to do with landscaping. It looks like an ad for Viagra or something. Put something in there pertaining to a beautiful landscape. Oh, and try and add your logo in at the top as well.

    Just a few things, but it should help to start.

    I would do something with the logo it does not look sharp, looks like you had to enlarge it to the point that you are losing too much detail.

    I like the banner and that is is not like all the other pics seen on LCO sites.

    I would put your logo at the top of each page on your site--instead of that grassy/blury image.

    and when you send people to a gallery of images, make sure your logo is there too.
