Default Requesting a web site criticism and review

Hello fellow Gopher guys!

I was temporarily using a freebie site template for my business' site. It looked horrible, in my opinion, so I made a new template for it last week and I think I've got it dialed in.

Let me know what you think and suggest improvements.

Thanks for the help.

Thank you, ccmark.

I'm no artist, just a programmer/lawn care provider (nice combo, eh?). I was going for a clean and simple look. My logo colors are black and gold (this is Steeler country so I figured it would get some looks ) and I wanted to use those colors.

The calendar isn't being used as it should yet. It's a part of the CMS that I built so I left it in. I'm thinking maybe putting specials on there, "sign up before Aug 8 to receive a special deal" or something like that. Any other ideas for using the calendar?

Hmm. I guess I should put a more detailed list of services on there. That makes sense.

That's the only thing i noticed.
Other than a lack of a detailed services list I like your site.

I tried to go to http://boughterslawncare.com/ and it wouldn't load up.

I think there is a server setting to deal with that.

Does that happen to you too?

Clean and simple...just the way I like a website. Would be nice to see some more photos and better descriptions of your work.

Well, instead of doing something important, like adding appropriate content, I built an RSS feed onto the blog section. http://boughterslawncare.com/feed.xml

I'll try to get more content soon and I definitely have some more that I want to say on the blog but I'm not so great at content writing.

Thanks for all the tips.

Anyone have any ideas for the calendar thing?

Hey, your site validates, too. Impressive. Tableless layout to boot! I'm not the only one that cares.
