    Let me know what you think will not be working on the landscape section until the fall of next year. Currently working on pressure washing just wanted to get your opinions. Still have alot of work to do but you will see the direction.

    I think it sucks that you stole as much content from other sites as you did. I think it sucks even more that I've deleted my review because I didn't check for stolen content first. I ran 3 random spot checks and all 3 came back to originating on different sites.

    Buy a theme and fill it with stolen content?

    What a waste of time...

    And the 7 seconds for the site to load.... and what "busy" mess it is when it does load... Need to simplify things and organize the layout better so it isn't just a bunch of everything right up against more of everything. Also too many examples of text that is not easily readable due to text color vs background.

    I agree with the above, especially with greg8872.

    I had it at 10.4mb, 200+ server calls, and an 11 second load time. Watching it load, with all of the extraneous animations and keyword spam, was what I imagine entering The Matrix must be like. I didn't make it to mobile, but I have a guess...

    Also seems strange that you pay $55 for that theme, and it calls resources back from their "demo" site ( )...
