    I still have some work to do but I think it is ready to show off.

    https://www.hancockglen.com


    There might be more than one person that can help with this but since my my site is dynamically generated I am having some problems with the rich snippet tool.

    I do not have the microdata added on all pages yet either but I do have some embedded in the about page and some on every page. Still trying to get this schema.org stuff down.

    I hope to get some more photos this spring.

    Good bad and the ugly comments are welcome.

    Made a few visable changes for style. Be sure to clear cache or you will not see it.

    I know the banner needs work. No comments so I suspect people do not like it :D

    Looks good, but I saw this:
    Local company in located in Grand Prairie Texas providing assisted facility maintenance management services.

    Now that you mention it... :) The banner either doesn't fit the site or the site doesn't fit the banner. Big splash of whimsy and color and then a sea of grey, dark grey, and black.

    I've been slammed for time due to a new endeavor, but will dig in to the site as soon as I can and get back to you.

    A couple of quick notes... the first line of your footer (Hancock Glen - Green Space and Facilities Maintenance) is light text with the same color shadow applied, creating a visual blur. In IE, that's fine, most likely due to IE not recognizing that bit of CSS. In Chrome, it's an illegible blur.

    I'd also recommend tweaking the "mid-footer" layout. There's a bit of a detached hodgepodge vibe going on there.

    I sort of like the header photo. I find it a bit cheerful and catchy. I think you might be better off changing the grey background on the rest of the page however. It sort of looks drab and depressing.

    I think the page would look more balanced if you moved the text under the banner photo to the bottom of the page. It just looks a little off to me where you have it located.

    The postscript area is 4 column and I am trying to configure it so that facepile and google plus fits in there.

    I am going to have the graphics guy clean up the photo so it blends a little better.

    The back ground can be tweaked. I need to did into the CSS.

    Definately something to look at. Can be tweaked in the CSS for sure.

    Some of that is a drupal default - site name and slogan. Not sure what I can do with that aspect.

    Thank you for the reply
