    Looks quite good actually.

    Was that a template, or did you have it designed? Designed yourself?

    The page turn is nice.

    Anyhow, it's a fairly slick looking design.

    Who is building it?

    I'm guessing that it's a premade template that's being edited in flash, otherwise it would be a fairly expensive layout to make from scratch for one company.

    Are you doing your own flash edits?

    The website looks very good and professional. I did notice that under the snow and ice management you have the same description as you do under irrigation. Just figured i'd let you know. Otherwise it looks great!

    Yes we have not completed all the wording and the site still has a way to Go. Adam Miller from Data Mail is building the site. He is a printer, Direct mail and marketing firm. His company is really on top of things.

    It looks pretty good but it is kind of slow too. I have a 5 mbps speed and it took about 30 seconds to load or so it seemed.

    Once it has loaded it is fast but the first time is slow.

    if you are on dial up then it will be slower, but he is also making a site that will work well with dial up.

    Hey - So how much is the guy charging you to modify that template? I saw it on monstertemplate.com. I saw a few others but they were too "green". Wasn't sure about using flash as it is a bit slower, but most people that use lawn service has cable/dsl.

    Decent backup plan, but enjoy that nice site when its done.

    If its a template - likely - nice design choice.

    Even if you don't put a ton of info into it, that site will still leave people with the impression that you like things done well.

    You made a good choice for your needs, and it will nice to see it when its all tweaked.

    By the way, there is one option that you might keep in mind for that kind of site - if you ever want a big advice section, you can have one page of your flash site, link to an ADVICE or information page that's done in HTML. It leaves the main presentation of services being showcased with flash, and put s the more utility type advice content into an HTML layout.

    If I go with Flash someday, that's what I'd do. I'd leave my 80 some-odd advice pages in HTML, all indexed from an index page, and put all my services and company on the jazzy looking flash design pages.
