    Thanks for the feedback. Anything I should change or reword?

    Should I put info in there about how exactly you can get your lawn cut for free? Or does that give potential clients a reason to call?

    Absolutely. Get a better domain name before you do anything else. That won't fit on a business card, truck sign or anything else worth a flip and it leaves WAY to much room for spelling errors. Remember 70-90% of your traffic will come from people seeing your signs, your domain name in your yellow page ad or your truck etc. That name just doesn't "work" for being "short", "catchy" and easy to remember"... the 3 main rules for a domain name.
    Don't forget, just ONE wrong letter and they go nowhere (and won't keep guessing) also you can still keep this one "pointed" to your site until it's year runs out; but get something better for your "main" address to keep for years.
  9. thanks for the feedback. I didn't realize that the image was so big. I'll look into other layouts. I must say that I'm a little surprised at the negative responses, but I do appreciate the constructive critisism.
  10. Team-Green, can you explain the validator to me a little more, I don't understand what the heck all that means...
