    Default Well I think I did pretty good, take a look please

    Well don't just take a look. I really do want your opinions, just because I like it does not mean its any good.

    Tell me things, see any mistakes? any misspellings?

    I like the thumb tacked pictures in the gallery, you? Do you like the colors? The fonts, the setup?

    Only with your opinions can I make it better.

    I like it, I think the color choices fit perfectly with your type of buisness. I think your header image is too distorted (stretched too much). I would add links back to your main image gallery from all the PG pages, Speaking of the PG pages all the links to the contact form are wrong they are linked to an .html insted of the .php page so it comes up 404 error.
    I like the thumb tacks I think it looks kool. Nice layout, easy to navagate and understand and loads ok. Good Job

    Like D'son I agree with what he said, the only real thing that I would change is the distorted over stretched banner image... I think it will be more catchy to have a really nice photo background for your banner.

    Hi, certainly has the right feel for a lawn & landscaping site & you are off to a good start. Ditto with not stretching the header image. You can mirror images (Like below) to help fill a space that won’t always look out of place.(little over reduced on this one) There is also 1 of the images is a bit to distorted in the slide show. http://lesleinlawn.com/013.jpg.
    Be careful on using the same words in the header for each page. All of these words should be also within the text of the page.
    The photo galleries are ok with broadband, but would be very slow with dial up or poor connections.

    Good luck with the site.

    Hi .. you will need to change the link on all your pages for the contactform .. it is php extension as opposed to html extension .. here is your page ..
    http://lesleinlawn.com/contactform.php

    Agree with what Chris is saying, the words you have typed on each page in the page properties for page titles, descriptions and metatags, those should be related to the content that is on the page .. you can make those changes on each page in the properties ..

    Instead of saying this on your service page - Leslein's is currently providing services to these fine Ohio cities - you might consider saying lawn and garden services .. just getting that lawn and garden services out more on all your pages .. a little more writing will help you .. think of terms people might use to find you by when they do a search, and write those in.

    And for snow plowing, please, tomorrow I will need a plow here .. ha ha ha .. so ur hired, lol

    Ha, you must be working on your site right now, you have already corrected the contact page .. lol

    The images you created are really nice, but it would also be good to carry your telephone number in text .. for a few different reasons too .. and your location .. might all be a nice addition to just below your bottom text navigation or just above it ..

    Hi Craig!
    I agree with the others re the stretched photo.

    I think your site looks really good! Personally though I found the black background just a bit too stark for a garden/environment.

    I would have gone for a dark earthy/chocolately brown instead which would still work well with the green and deep gold but be more sympatheic to the subject.

    Other than that I think it's looking good!

    Thanks everybody.

    Those are good solid suggestions and I will do what you say. Cause I agree also, especially the banner. Can I use the one you put up for me.

    It looks as if I need to do a little more tweaking.


    LadyEye give me the addy. I will be right there to take care of that snow!! All the help you have given me, its the least I could do.

    Tanks again everybody.

    D'son, thanks dude. You know your stuff.

    On the banner! Of course you can. Just right click & copy. This was just an idea/alternative.

    Good luck.

    Well done, also I'm an hour and a half southwest of Chicago, we're expecting snow within the next couple of days so I will be on the look out for your truck to roll up and plow me out. LOL
