Smile "New" Web Site Feedback

I just got the basics to the web site up and running. If you get a chance, feedback would be appreciated. I am still working on the packages and promotions tab with that hoping to be up later this week. I have someone actually writing the site not using a generator so, some layouts might show up different on different computers and software. If this happens to you could you post it so I can get it fixed. Thanks everyone! www.yourscapelawn.com

I like it a lot. It's clean and simple. However, You said your are also a snow removal company in your logo so you should list that as one of your services. You should also have photos of your work because pictures tell a million words. I also think that the green background is a little much. I would just keep it white because it makes it a lot cleaner.

Yes, the snow removal is still a tab that is in the working along with the pictures of my work. I am new and starting up this spring so those pic were just a filler until I get actual ones. About the background I was trying to get the striping look. But I will defiantly keep that in mind. Thanks for the feedback.

It doesn't display properly for me.

I'm viewing on an old Mac using an old version of Firefox.
I haven't checked it on my laptop though.


Blunt alert:
Speaking as a graphic designer, that first part with "we strive to provide you" is a horrible font choice. It's terribly hard to read. I understand the desire for a scripty/classy look, but that ain't it.

Just constructive feedback:

I would change the green as it's very hard to read

Format needs work, page tabs should be easy to find and click on

I like the font for your company name, consider other fonts for your slogan etc

Heh. Yeah, I would if I could, but I'm on the most current OS and Firefox version that my machine can use.

Not many people are running 10-15 year old computers these days.
