    I need a simple website for my landscaping company. Does anyone know of any simple green web templates? (I suck at prettying up websites) It just needs a home page, a services page and a contact page. This is just a quick placeholder site to get by for now...

    Yahoo site builder if you want to go the build it yourself route. Easy to use, easy to manipulate but you will get out of your website what you put into it. Garbage in, garbage out!

    Spend some time and effort to make sure your site is clean, easy to navigate, easy to understand.

    With Yahoo I think the hosting and sitebuilder with everything you need is there for $10 bucks a month.

    Do some searching about Yahoo, GoDaddy & such, you will find most people end up not liking them because it's too "big business".

    Most hosts have site builders today so if you want simple look for one where you can customize a template very easy by changing to a more "landscape" looking background etc.
    Nowhere should you have to pay over $10 a month for a good plan with a site builder if you do some shopping.

    Just FYI, Your site does not work at ALL in FireFox. The CSS text layout is overlapping and unreadable.

    Did you fix it?

    I have Firefox and it looks fine for me tonight. Nothing out of whack anywhere that I can see.

    I'm wondering if monitor size has anything to do with it. Looks like MD has a wide monitor like I do, while Jon may have one of the older regular sized monitors....

    What screen resolutions are you guys using? I think I am 1024x768...this may have a bearing on it as well?

    Thanks for all your help guys!
