A new online gardening website makes learning about and planning outdoor projects easier than ever before.

Called the Lawn & Garden Yellow Pages (, this new resource is the landing pad for home gardeners and plant lovers who are looking for information. Here, gardening enthusiasts will find details on plants, garden products and services along with information on where all of these items can be purchased locally.

“LGYP is a perfect mix of shopping and information,” says Steve Cissel, GIYP CEO and founder, publisher of the new gardening site.

The site is closely connected with leading gardening and outdoor style publications, like Garden Design magazine. It links these publications’ online stories with LGYP search features. This means home gardeners can search for plants, products, services and garden centers locally while at the same time reading gardening how-to articles.

In addition to the magazine articles, the database includes growing tips and information on more than 38,000 different types of plants. And each plant has its own plant tag with information on sun and water requirements, hardiness zone and growth and flowering habit.

“Visitors to LGYP can search for free a full range of gardening how-to articles with tips on everything from creating a water garden to how and when to prune roses,” says Cissel. “Plus, home gardeners can search local garden centers that offer the supplies and services they want.”

In addition to the content search, the web site offers a Virtual Plant Tag™ database.

“As the site matures, we hope to add additional gardening stories authored by garden writers from across the country,” says Cissel.

The site currently offers contact information and web site links to more than 150,000 lawn and garden businesses in the United States and Canada. For more information visit
