    Changed a few things around and fixed the gallery. Any more comments welcomed, especially on loading speed.

    Cheers

    I'd take out all the equipment links. Those may be useful to landscapers, but not your potential clients. Links to garden news site, cooperative extensions, local retail nurseries are more helpful and will get visitors more excited about new projects.

    Spend your weekends with your family, not your yard work!

    AWESOME! Keep telling folks this and forget about the details - almost.

    Really though, in my opinion the above line is worth putting on the header of every page, just below your business name with lots of margin. Better yet, put it right up top -left aligned , shrink Lynden a bit. After all our customers really don't give sh** about US/YOU they care about ME - themselves. I have to think this thru for my site :)

    your content is neat, simple, easy to find. The pics load quickly

    Hi Jeff

    I would caution you against putting your text into the onmouseover tags which create that pop-up text box. It *may* be seen as search engine spam since it's hidden from the page. From a site visitor perspective, I think too it's best simply to place that text within the page so that they can see it's there and read it otherwise, they might overlook that section and just assume it's a service listing without actually mousing over to see what's there. It was hard for me to see the difference in color of the link styles between the green link and black text.

    Putting text on page will get it indexed and increase the richnesses and variety of your text - all good things. If I were in your shoes, I would make each service it's own separate web page. Yes, certainly more work. But it gives you the chance to create pages which have very good focus which should serve you well from a search engine standpoint.

    My comments are only about search engines and such and if these things are not a high priority, then I would say that it looks and works great. It's a very nice looking site.
