Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
The white lettering is very difficult to read where you click to other pages of the site. Use a color that you can read easily. On your landing page, I would put the number to call you at the top so it can be seen quickly. With it small and at the bottom, you make a potential customer look for it and most will just go some where else. A good spot to put it would be right under your Company name in the banner area. Make your company name a Little bigger than the number.

^^^ Exactly.

Also, it doesn't appear to load properly for me. There's a "strip" down the right side with "part" of an image (lawn?) and your name under it - your name/number are only visible for the first few letters.
