    I am in the process of having a site designed. A friend is doing it for me and our local internet provider will host it for FREE

    I plan on starting simple just to get it up. maybe just an info page like my flier.

    Any suggestion are welcome.

    Here are the links I have on my page:<p>HOME<p> PRICING (what payment plans you have, deals, coupons, specials)<p>ABOUT US,(Info about your company)<p>Contact Us (e-mail, phone, etc.)<p>EQUIPMENT (shows off your commercial eq. so the customer knows they are getting professional service<p>PAY ONLINE (allows customers to pay invoices online via paypal) <p>I am also going to include a gallery page as soon as the spring starts and I can take some pictures. Well, I hope this helped.

    I saw the first draft yesterday. It's coming along.
    to start I will have a simple list of most services on the home page.

    power raking/dethatching

    Then links to Mowing services, Fertilizer programs

    Eventually I will links to other pages about me, my work w/pics, my family w/pics, my equipment w/pics

    I am also going to have a current topic section where I mention the currently relevant service for each page.

    like Spring aeration info on the home page

    spring cleanup info on the mowing page

    first fert application info on the fert page.

    I am also going to have a links page where I want to link to Lesco, My local equipment dealer, My brothers tree farm, and maybe a couple others who have helped me get this biz going.

    I hope to have it up and running by the weekend I will post a link then and you all can give me your constructive criticism
    ;) :eek: :dizzy: :cry: :cool: :confused:

    It's up and running :D

    Here's my new web site. It's still a little rough around the edges and I plan to add more info and more pages. I just wanted to get the basics up and visible.

    I will probably go into more detail in some descriptions.
    I want to add a "my equipment" page, a
    about me" page, a "my family" page and a "my work" page.

    And maybe a separate page for some links to some people who have helped me in this biz. (not competitors)

    Let me know what you think. Be honest I can take it.........I think..

    :( :blush: :) :D

    We've adjusted a few things and added a page with my equipment list. More to come.

    Any more input?

    I guess I'm a little slow with this response, but this is my first visit to this section of lawnsite. Your web page is fantastic! Very professional, visually appealing and informative. I see a lot of the guys posting photos of properties they mow. Your site looks great as it is, but maybe add a couple of pics of your work if you can although probably not necessary.

    Thank's for the comments. I do plan on addng pictures when things get green around here. I don't have many from before and they would have to be scanned in. I do have a couple I'm going to try to put on but my web designer is getting some new software for photos so we're witing a bit. She also has a dig. camers so When srping finaly hits, hopfullly I can get some goood pics.

    remember to check back in a few weeks. I hope to add a little more info.

    Thanks again
