Hello and welcome to Brain Mass today! You logged in and asked for continuing help for the project that we are working on together. Thank you again for allowing me to help with this!

Today, your professor asked you to do the following:

Take any 2 (off your choice) websites from possible competitors to your company or organizations with a similar mission to yours. Answer the following questions pertaining to these websites. Do not simply answer yes or no to the questions; explain your answers. Remember to include a link to each website in your References page so that I may resource it as well. APA formatting is used where applicable.

I went ahead and found two ?competitor? websites for you to use for your project: One is called North Georgia Lawn from Georgia, and the second is Stone Ferris Lawn Service of Fort Meyers Florida. What you need to do for your assignment is to analyze both of these web sites so that you have a good understanding of how to create one for yourself (I am assuming that this will be a future part of the project too)!

Let us both take a look at North Georgia Lawn First. They can be found at www.northgeorgialawn.com/commercial-lawn-care-services.html and the APA citation for the Works Cited area will be:

North Georgia Lawn. (2013). Found February 6, 2013: http://www.northgeorgialawn.com/commercial-lawn-care-services.html

1. What are some particular things about this website that you admire?

For this requirement, you need to tell your professor what your opinion is of this web site overall. What do you like about it? What catches your eye? What would you use in your own web site from this one? I actually liked this web site a lot. The first thing that struck me is that it was peaceful and tranquil to look at. Part of this is because of the use of the color green as the predominant color in it, and the other part is the slideshow that is provided of various garden landscapes. It was well-done in appearance and provided a good tone.

2. What could have been done better or more concisely?

This, again, is your opinion of what you did not like about this web site. Is there something about the color that is unattractive to you? Do you like the font that was used for the words? The part that I did not like was that it was too wordy at the bottom. At least 3/8th of the site was dedicated to customer testimonials. Although this is important, perhaps not so much space should have been dedicated to this ...
