    Building a web site is not hard. You're correct. Anyone can build a web site. Anyone can build a boat. My Mom can build a web site. My Mom can build something that resembles a boat. I would entrust neither my business' marketing nor my life to my Mom doing either. It's the level of functionality and usefulness that matters.

    I understand that. I'm not a professional or anything but I do it for fun.

    I haven't updated it in a while but that's cause I have been swamped in school and work as it is

    Two quick bits of feedback...
    - If you used a template to build your site, it has a spam link hidden in every page.
    - Your meta description tag is actually rendering on the home page.

    While it is generous of you, my best advice would be to get your own site in top form before volunteering your time to help others with their sites. Your lawn business' marketing is more important to you than anyone else's. I'd also suggest reading through any thread where there's a site review as any one I can point you to will be helpful to you and directly apply to your site.

    That is something I made for my class in school. Being a full time student I really don't have the funds to go out and pay to have a fancy site made. So we had a class and I took advantage of it.

    I actually just made a website through wordpress about a week ago. Never have had a website in 25yrs but with having some down time this winter I decided to get the business online. (its my dads business i plan to take over in future).

    Its still in the works but here it is so far.
    costelloslandscaping.com

    I had no experience whatsoever and just decided to take on the challenge. Learned everything online by reading and watching a few videos. Its actually pretty simple after the first time using a template with wordpress. I used hostgator.com as a host. Actually bought my domain from go daddy though.

    My experience with vistaprint sites has been just the opposite. I first set my page up in 2008 I believe. It's not the snazziest one out there, but I have had people call me after finding it AT THE TOP OF GOOGLE I might add and tell me they liked it. Yes, I said top of google and by that I mean, it's below all the sites that you KNOW are PAYING to be at the top. Don't believe me? Google Spring Hill TN Lawn Care and see what you get.
