    It looks a very nice website easy on the eye and informative, only slight thing I would say is that have your

    Home Service Portfolio Contact , text a couple of points larger and maybe in bold type too. And maybe a little more text about your company on the home page, important to give veiwers an instant hit about what you do as soon as they land on your home page.

    Other than that its a very good site 

  • thanks for your comments. another pair of eyes and some opinions always helps

  • Really good i personally like homepages quite low on text so its suits me great! My only critic is The large banner images are too low resolution 

  • Very sleek - looks very very good.

    However from a traffic generation point the very small amount of text won't help you in the search engines.

    The contact details although easy enough to find when you look - could be made more obvious. Maybe a few calls to action for example on the services page it gives a simple and appealing account of what you offer but you  really have to spell it out online what you want your visitor to do.

    Which I'm assuming is pick up the phone and invite you over to discuss a project.

  • looks excellent - quick to load, easy to navigate, great projects, a good balance of pics and written info, clean and inviting layout. I spotted a typo in your client testimonial - an 'is' instead of 'it'! It would be nice to be able to click on an image to get a full screen or larger version but I don't think this will put anyone off, and at least it means it is quick to load this way.

    I thought your fees and contract values looked low for the apparent scope of the work...?

  • thanks. I was thinking that as well..  might have to upgrade my hosting to allow for larger images

  • thanks, I'm not really up on how search engines work. maybe if i submitted more text heavy pages to the search engines might help ?

    I was thinking I might add a full contacts page with email form type to fill in..... not sure as I always by-pass those forms and send something direct to an email..

  • Oh.. just had a look at your website... lovely work !  I have seen the walled garden in Cheltenham somewhere before. Loved the use of wildflower meadow to fame a more formal lawn. The design fees posted are %50 less than normal rates, I offer this if projects are done on a design & build basis.

  • If you are looking to target people searching for "London lanscape designers
    " then unfortunately that phrase will have to be on your page somewhere.

    The case studies pages are excellent fodder for the search engines. I would add more of these and have as much regional variation as possible.

    The site is set up very well to grow in size content wise as you complete more projects adding these pages will bring a variety of different searchs to the site over time and the very obvious quality of the work will bring you new business.
