    Hey all. Im looking to get some feedback on our new site. We are still playing with color schemes and we still need to add a couple pics to the rotation but its getting there. Let me know what you think about the overall feel, did it keep your attention etc. Be critical if you have to. Your help is appreciated.

    I'm not a fan of the lower half of the background, the dithered green.

    Second, the opening flash intro displays "* Design *..." etc, and they look somewhat like they are links, but they are not. Perhaps change them to look less like links, since using them as links would be redundant.

    Other than that, it looks pretty good (if not a little cookie cutter).

    Consider having a form setup in the contact area that people can fill out and you can contact them, might result in a lot more leads.

    Off the bat remember Flash sites are the most difficult to code for the search engines.
    A search engine robot would see your site just like the below, and the results won't be pretty because the "title line when you displayed would be the "" or maybe " di Stefano Landscaping :: Home" if the "fail" didn't just block it altogether. Here's what they see:

    di Stefano Landscaping :: Home
    FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).
