IMO in the slide show which looks great instead of the pictures saying and some dont the number of the picture dsc12345 name it to something else.

I think it looks good.

A very nice web site. You might want to ad a blog. My blog got me listed on the city and county web sites.

Do you have a link to your blog? Maybe I can get some idea's on what to write about and see a format for one. Thanks for the input!

Ok here goes.

Landing page :eek: too much green at least that shade and the page is not centered.

every page you click on has a different color i.e. green, gray, blue or photos. If you want to change themes then use photos instead of colors.

It just doesn't seem to have a cohesive flowing theme.

Don't take this personal as you asked for critique. Hope this helps

Ok, I am by no means a website pro, but I noticed several things. There may be a legit explanation that I am not aware of. But here are the things I noticed still.

-the pages are not all the same width,
-some pages are centered,
-some pages are left left justified,
-and there are a different quantity of link tabs on the left side on some pages.


Good luck. I love your website otherwise though.

How did you come up with that idea?

I wanted a way to capture contact information when people go to the site so that I can market to them. It would be 100% customer inquiry that way and I read it on line by someone, may have been Chestins site, I did it through my Aweber.com account, which is a yearly fee to capture and maintain a mailing list. You can develope mailing campaigns with this service.

Oh fascinating! How much do they charge and what kinds of things can you do with it that would help a lawn care business grow?

Once I capture info, I can set up email campaigns designed to offer services that we offer. I also set up a form to capture info for people specifically looking for quotes.

Do you have access to mysql database on your web server? I'll get the code up for you to be able to do that for free :)

I dont think I want to make people sign up for the site to become members of it. Im not to sure what the mysql database on my web server stuff is all about anyway.

I am testing the code now that will allow a customer to enter information on your site to receive an estimate. They won't have to sign up for anything, just leave you their contact information.

Who ever hosts your site can set you up with access to a database and from there, you could insert this code.

My hosting is with godaddy.com I created a database and just waiting for it to be created, so I guess I will give it a try and see if I can not screw it all up...lol

Oh good, keep us posted on the process you went through to get your database set up.

I am sure others are going through this as well.
