We’ve unveiled a new Lawn & Landscape website, and hope you’ll check it out.

RICHFIELD, Ohio – If you’ve checked out the Lawn & Landscape website recently – and I’d wager you have, since you’re reading this – you’ll have noticed that things look a bit different. 
 
Last week, we unveiled some changes to the site, and they’re all designed to make it easier for you to navigate and find the information you need quickly. 
 
The biggest change is that our message board has been killed. Dead. Gone. Instead, we’re taking advantage of the social media tools you already use – Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter – to foster discussion and get feedback. 
 
Need to find a sub, or just want to learn more about the contractors in your area? Use the member search function, which pulls from Lawn & Landscape’s vast database to give you data on other contractors.
 
Remember that story from a few months (or years) ago? Was it in the issue, or in one of our e-newsletters? With an expanded ability to search our archives, you can find those stories you wish you’d saved.
 
Other areas of the new site include: 
 
Business Group – check out profiles of the other magazines in our Horticulture Group portfolio
Marketplace – find products, read classifieds and download MSDS sheets here
Multimedia – access archives of our podcasts, videos and webcasts
 
We’ll be updating the site with more multimedia content, and you can sign up for our forthcoming e-newsletters on design/build, irrigation and product updates by e-mailing me at cbowen@gie.net.
 
As always, we want to know what you think of both the new site and the magazine. So, send me your compliments and criticism, too. And thanks for reading.
