Carlsbad, NM (PRWEB) January 1, 2009
Along with many new developments in the last year, recent additions of more services and supplies sources are gradually transforming The Landscape Design Site.com into a more all in one source for landscaping and garden design information. Since January of 2002, The Landscape Design Site.com has focused primarily on providing free plans, pictures, ideas, and advice to the do it yourself community. With plans for a new store, the contractors directory, and the recently added landscaping ideas videos directory, the site will be a more useful resource for the coming year.
The Landscape Design Site was created by professional landscaping contractor and designer Steve Boulden to offer advice and solutions to the do it yourself community. Due to the fact that the growing trend in landscaping is to do it yourself, the site has focused on this group. However, there still is a large group who want to find landscaping contractors or companies to do it for them. Since so many of these people find their way to the site, it only makes sense to provide a source. The contractor directory does this by allowing designers to post their portfolios and information and allowing do it yourselfers to browse their work. And it's a free service to all.
The new contractors directory is intended to help match home owners with construction companies by allowing them to view pictures of their projects and plans. The contractors themselves are can place a link to their site and give contact information. While this is the intent of the directory, it will also become a valuable ideas source as it fills up. It has the potential to be a better resource than the sites original landscaping ideas gallery and in time will probably dwarf the already extensive secondary directories which hold a few thousand pictures.
While completely opposite of the Landscape Design Site model, a new store and supplies outlet will fit the model of an all in one resource. It's a large project but will be limited to project specific and quality products and materials for creating the landscaping ideas on the site. As being a professional in the field himself, Mr. Boulden can share his experience on which tools and materials are useful and quality. And of course, which ones are a waste of time and money.
With all directories and departments combined, the ultimate end result and focus for the site is convenience. While economy and value are priority for most consumers, convenience and saving time is a close second. With this in mind, the new directories are being placed to help shape the structure of the site for organization and quick reference for any and all landscaping information, plans, or materials all in one location.
As a basic raw ideas source, The Landscape Design Site has surely found its place in the bookmarks of almost anyone looking for free landscaping plans and ideas. Now, once a home owner finds an idea or plan on the site, they can either find someone to build it or get the materials to do it themselves. All in one place.
