    Looks good, easy to navigate. You need better quality pictures on your portfolio page.

    Check your spelling, I looked at your services page and there are a few misspelled words.

    first thing, set your background image to tile, so it fills up the whole screen.

    I'd also get some better pictures up on your portfolio page. none of those pictures would make me want to have you help my yard.

    I would suggest you to add more pictures to portfolio and to better organize them in this section.

    Looks great to me, simple and nice looking. I like the logo...

    ya looks pretty good for your first one, but i would suggest centering the page so it isn't aligned to the left and maybe make a contact form where people type in there name email message etc. and it gets sent to your email, but ya looks good.

    For this guys site it would be added in the following CSS (addition in bold to repeat both x and y)

    #apDiv1 {
    	background-image: url(images/WEblayout_12.jpg);
           [B]background-repeat: repeat;[/B]
    Agreed. I will add the following.

    1. VALIDATE YOUR CODE! At the very least add a DTD.
    2. When on the services page, the services menu link is broken.
    3. Make the contact menu link go somewhere, not a mailto
    4. No reason why this site should not fit in a standard sized screen, which would avoid the vertical scrolling.
    5. Homepage wording needs work

    A picture on the home page...most people will look at a pic before reading all the text.
