I like the flash header, but if there was a way to minimise the file size so that it didn't have to load for a while, that would be nice.
I viewed it using a 3MB d/l speed, and 2.5GB RAM in my computer, so it's a little incongrous that something should take that long to load up for me).
There's nothing else about the design I don't like. Maybe that the header of the page is a little big, but it's not killing the site.
You didn't ask for a content review, but it's not readily apparent to me what your site is for.
You might also consider having someone re-write the copy you use on the front page as it seems like gibberish to me.
I gleaned after several brow furrowing minutes that you apparently design gardens. Is that correct?
If I found it through a search engine I would admire the design, but I wouldn't stick around to decipher what the site was about.
Thank you for taking time to reply in such depth, Ringleader. We'll look more closely at the upload time. Yes, garden design. That is it. I'm glad you liked the design. The webmaster put a lot of work and attention into it.
I'll comment only on the presentation, graphics could be more refined, for example on all pages there is a mish mash of font styles and sizes with no apparent consistency. In some pages I counted more than 6 fonts/sizes!
On copy was it not possible to edit sentences to avoid 1-2 word overhangs?
