Just built a new website for a mate and was hoping for a little feedback on what people thought,this is my first site so try not to be too harsh with the comments although all feedback is much appretiated.

Once I got into it, I found the style to be very elegant and clean.

However, my immediate reaction was to hit the mute button on my keyboard, as that awful electronic muzak blasted out at me as soon as I had permitted the script. It's not appropriate, it's off-putting and it's a gimmick.

I'll go through the site fully and get back to you.

Thanks for that, i've scrapped the intro,I hated it but mate liked it I thought that it was to noisy and put me off.

We have to say this a lot; watch your grammar and punctuation. For example "Hedgesdirect are part of a established company..." should say "Hedgesdirect is part of a established company..."

"Thankyou for visiting. Please come back soon" at the bottom of every page.... I haven't gone anywhere yet.

Photos are bit too small.

The contact page has very small contact details that are dominated by the distorted card logos.

On a good note; my initial reaction to your site style has held true, apart from the above points. It is very modern, attractive and clean. Professional-looking - which unfortunately has the effect of accentuating the weak spots - and you have avoided any green cliches.

"Hedgesdirect is part of a established company..."

That needs a second correction, of course; "an" in place of "a".

Nice points ade.h will change, it is only my first but with the help you are giving me I can only improve

It is an excellent first effort, Chaz. I assume that you did it in Dreamweaver, and to learn that program when you are new to web design is brave of you. I use NOF and occasionally FP instead.

Plain, straight to the point,clean and simple.

Would suggest that you gave more contact information to perhaps cover yourself re Distance Selling regulations. Perhaps add planting times and information, for the novice or budding planter.

Try to cut out the 'we' on most of the sentences.

Thanks, points taken will sort it out some more tommorrow, thanks again for your help.
