    Ok for Starters, I'm no tech person at all, I one finger type it's ridiculous. PC is fried so I literally in a rush built this on my Note phone.
    1.. Its currently a Personal Theme, I need the business theme but I didn't want to pay for a theme in fear I wouldn't be able to even build the site, this is a first so things may be outa order, I'm having trouble with the Gravatar, it's supposed to open up a Profile but it doesn't seem to do anything.
    2. Since its a personal theme, I can't download a Plug-in and widgets are limited. I will be going with a business plan & then I can have a call Button.
    3. Testimonials... I'm only seeing one little tiny place at the bottom of the Home page where someone hits to leave a comment. It's so tiny that it go's unnoticed. Need help there.
    4. SEO.... there's paid options & Do it yourself options?
    5. Right now it's .net, iv now bought the .com domain as well but I kinda like the zing to www.graphiclawns.net Does that make much difference? It's important right now because I also have Flyers & Doorhangers in limbo waiting for a website address. Oh and 6.. Iv read many places the battle between "I" and "we".... I am solo, but I did do alot of "we".. so hell, I don't know anything about websites. But I can certainly change all the "we" to "I" or to Graphic Lawns.

    Home page: Under the precious moment figure, "it’s a very treasured gift from a dear to me customer"

    on the "more!" page, last line "
    17- Mental note,,Put call button here for sure. - guessing you mean thats for you and you need to put the call now button for smart phone?

    Please take this as constructive criticism. Just two quick thoughts: 1) You have one large photo of your stander. It's condition looks like you mow in bogs. 2) Waaay too many photos of stripes. Seen one stripe; seen 'em all. A couple of lawns and web visitors would get the idea...you do neat mowing.

    Yes later on I noticed the dried mud on the tire. Trust me, that was from my own place, mowing my own is awful. I'm out in the sticks. Actually what I wanna do,.. is thoroughly clean everything. And get a good truck, trailer, and a couple mowers on there pic. Thanks

    Ran the proof read on that & it shows no errors but something does look funny about it. Screenshot_2018-01-18-08-13-49.png

    Should be either "a customer who is dear to me" or "a dear-to-me customer." (with hyphens)
