    We normally give T shirts away to anyone who will wear one. they cost us $7 printed.

    And the website looks good. Its a good layout that can grow as your business does.

    I would start with the homepage where you list services. You tried to list them in "columns" but the second and third ones are lower. My guess is your using wordpress?

    Secondly I would create pages for each services so you can explain them better The reason for creating pages for everything is more chances someone will find you when they do a google search.

    I think selling t-shirts on your site is a bad idea, as ef200098 said give them away. Their your customers. But if you do sell them, do it at request, putting that on the website just doesn't sit right in my mind and if I was looking at your site from a consumers perspective it would put me off a little. Your website should be more about your services and not "Pay your bill" "Buy t-shirts" ect.

    I do like the way you guys put that, we do give most of our shirts away, but January through March we put a $2 mark up on them and make it known all profit goes to snowcare for troops and project evergreen. I wont be putting it on the website.

    Did you code the website yourself, get a template, or hire someone out to code it? Just trying to get an idea of how the industry goes about building their websites

    Ok, since the original posting of this a lot has changed! Check out our new website and also here is a list of what is currently going on with Shaney's

    Here is a basic summary:
    Well I am making it a goal to get on here much more often to kick off the 2015 season! Since I originally posted back in 2012 we have grown a lot. We are no longer Shaney's Lawn Care & Landscaping LLC, we have become Shaney's Group, Inc. with this change many new things are coming. There are Shaney's Snow & Ice Management, Shaney's Maintenance , Shaney's Hardscapes, Shaney's Landscape, and Shaney's Pond & Excavating these are all divisions under neither the group. So far the Maintenance, Landscape, and Hardscape all have full crews with room for two more in the Landscape division they do all the new lawns installations and mulch/stone bed/planting new/renovation jobs. We have been adding trucks and currently have 6 for summer use.
    I will be getting pictures up and be keeping everyone posted on projects and maintenance for the 2015 season!
    Thanks

    So sorry. I don't like the black on green Big S in your logo on the first page. Very poor contrast.
    It looks like "Haneys" landscape.

    For commercial snow and ice management. Many companies, stores, banks, and hospitals are deathly afraid of customer slip and fall accidents. Lawyers are just waiting to sue businesses all winter. Keep this concern in mind when selling snow removal. And be willing to apply lots of salt to sidewalks

    The S is being worked on right now. This has been a common complaint since the change in names. And as far as the salting goes, that is nothing new, we actually offer a snow removal policy called a "no slip" which means if there is a chance of a fall we are there. We have been offering this for the last 3 years and as an incentive for them to go with it we actually have our insurance cover 50% of the fall incident costs which thank fully in the last 3 years has been 0 :)!
    Are you guys a LLC or an INC?
