Default Great web designer

Hey guys. Check out my new website. www.triadhomeservices.com . Had it designed and one year of hosting for only $249.00! We really like it. Now that spring is coming, we will have it updated to focus on lawn care more and will post the updates as they are added. Our older site (www.americanlandscapesvcs.com ) was designed by the same company and will be left up until the hosting runs out in July.

Let me know what improvements you think I should add to get more lawn care customers.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Nice looking website. If your trying to gear toward more lawn maintenance customers, you should have that as your landing page. The page you send everyone to has not one thing that says lawn care, no pics etc. All I saw was interior design type things. If I was just looking for lawn care, my first reaction would be that this has nothing to do with what I am looking for and I would go away. A separate page that has to do with all your services, one page for lawn care, one page for interior design etc. then have them as the landing pages for each services advertising.

They are stock photos. Get rid of them.

First thing I thought of was handyman service. If I had not clicked on the services tab I would not know you provided this service. As a consumer looking for lawn care, I's hitting the back button.

I agree with the landing pages being geared toward handyman services. Thats what we push during the winter months. This is why is said that we will be updating it for the lawn care season. I will repost once the edits have been completed. The testimonials are real, but I will tell her to take the "customer photos" out. Maybe put up thumbnails of the actual work that was done for each customer. We always take before and afters of the construction work. We are also working on a portfolio page to showcase some of our larger projects. Have been putting this aside to get ideas for the lawn care side.

I appreciate any input.

Hi James,

Very nice and graphical site! It is really eye catchy!

What made you expand from lawn care into home services? How have you liked the transition so far?
