Hi topgardenservices,

The two slow loading images on your Services page are huge files. You will need to reduce the file sizes from 4 Megabytes to about 30 to 60 kilobytes. You can do this with various online services such as Picnik or standalone image manipulation programs such as Gimp or Photoshop.

Once you have done that you will find your images will load quickly. It's a common oversight and a good learning point.
