Garden and Landscape Designer
Maple Plain, MN
Pleasant View Gardens provides professional garden design, installation, and maintenance for both commercial and residential landscapes near Maple Plain, MN.
Pleasant View Garden’s previous website was developed over 5 years ago and had not been updated since its’ initial launch. It wasn’t mobile responsive and much of the content had become outdated. The owner, Anita, was never shown how to update her website and the original developer was difficult to get a hold of.
Additionally, Anita was not pleased with the overall look and would often refer people away from her website as it did not accurately portray the quality of work they do. As you can see below, the navigation is crowded, the gradient background repeats awkwardly and your eye is led in many directions by too many bold colors.
Her website didn’t mention some of the industry’s hot topics such as green, sustainable practices and locally grown plants.
I designed a simple, vibrant website and developed it with the WordPress platform. I brought all of the color to the inner, more important parts of the website to capture her clients’ attention. I simplified the navigation bar with easy drop-down menus and chose to show their social media links prominently up top.
I made sure to break the content down, making it easy for people to find what they are looking for as well as additional information about organic practices and home grown plants. I also included general on-page SEO and assisted with updating local database listings such as Google.
Since launch I have continued to offer advice for improving Pleasant View Garden’s SEO as well as kept her website updated depending on the season.
