Sorry to the mods, posted this in the wrong place.
General Outline: The site is supposed to get more customers to come to the site and get more calls/email for more landscaping business.
There are no 404's etc, just 2 script errors.
I would like everyone to take a look please and give some feedback overall with a bit of importance place on ranking better with SEO.
Thank you for your time.

From a design perspective I think your site looks professional - clear, good use of images... a couple of suggestions:
- On your pages with less height such as contact and gallery, on my monitor (1600x1200 resolution) the grass footer doesn't stick to the bottom of the page... it just cuts of to pale blue.
- You could have a rotating subtle animation on the homepage, fading through some of your highlighted projects and between your USPs for example
- Some of the lawns on 'our lawns' look a little brown, no one will notice if you green 'em up a bit ;)
- Could add project descriptions & titles to our lawns gallery
- Some of your meta titles don't quite read right. The one on the contact page is a duplicate

Thanks for the feedback. Are you displaying the site at 100% on your monitor? What browser and version are you using?

Will do the SEO things.

Your welcome. Yep - 100% width and height of monitor. Though you will only be able to see the issue if you have a monitor resolution with 1200 pixels in height or greater, which won't be most visitors to be fair. I was on Chrome but I think the problem is browser independent

If you got a screen shot that would help.

Question about services?
First off, nice site design! it was easy to navigate and I was able to immediately identify what services you offered.
Over all your SEO was pretty good through out the site, you have a good amount of original content on almost every page and your most common used words for every page is related to your services.
In regards to SEO I would suggest to make your site bigger (add more pages). You only have 10 pages, which is not that much. Some ideas for new pages is you can create a new page for each service you offer and go into detail about how the service is performed and why your service is better then your competition.
Also an easy way to add new pages and receive more traffic is to create a new page for each city you service as well. I noticed you put the county in almost every single title tag/description tag which is good. However sometimes people may type in their city name instead of the county. example; "Buffalo City Tree Removal Service". If you had a landing page named crewcuttersobx.com/buffalo-city-landscape-lawn-care-tree-services.php and wrote out a few paragraphs with the keywords "buffalo city" and "tree removal" Then I am sure you will generate traffic from new keywords.
Minor SEO Suggestion.
You have these two pages which are obviously the same page.
You shouldn't have any links on your site to that point to the index.php version, instead you should link to the root domain only; crewcuttersobx.com
Tools I used.

Great website. Good Job on it.

Very nice design. It really jumps at you. As someone else mentioned there is too much "we" in it. Rewrite in passive voice where the object the customer comes first. Until you are waiting on a write to rewrite the copy you can change some we with your name.
SEO-wise you are doing good. You have over 3000 links. Adding more pages will give Google something to sink your teeth into. Perhaps add a page each for each city you serve so if a person typed the name of their city beside Kill Devil Hills they should be able to find it. A good start will be other neighboring cities in Dare Couty. Poerhaps a page of Kitty Hawk Landscaping Services and other cities as Duck, Manteo, Nags Head and Southern Shores unless you want to restrict your services to Kill Devil but with a population of 5000 only you would know if it has enough landcscaping business to sustain a long-term business. I would also like to see some comments about Wright Brothers National Memorial and Kill Devil fame as birthplace of Aviation. It may be trivia but will bring you visitors beyond your immediate vicinity.
