For the "About Us" page, I need a short paragraph on your company profile. You can include what equipment you use, how long your compnay has been in business, etc...use key sentances that grab your visitors attention.

Lets see what you can come up with.

Lightning Lawn Service has been in the lawn maintenance industry for five years, providing quality service with a professional attitude. *We use all commercial grade equipment to give your lawn the best care possible. *We never leave a job until we are 110% satisfied with the finished product. *We guarantee satisfaction.

What do you think? *I started my own business this past june but i've been cutting grass with other companies since I was 16 so thats why I put 5 years. *It just sounds better.

I'm not sure on how to setup email accounts on my computer. I just knew of the accounts online. Thanks for all your help
