In order to utilize all of the features at LawnSite.com, you must register

Before you register, you will see a set of general rules and guidelines
you must read before joining. The rest of the rules are located HERE.
You must agree to the rules before registering.
When you register you will need to create a “user name” that
you will be known by at the site (maybe your company name or a nickname),
and a password. You will also need to register with a working, valid email
address. This is to fight spam.
IMPORTANT – When you
finish your registration, you are not finished yet. You must go back to
your email folder where you will receive an email from us instantly and
click on the link in the email, which will finalize your registration
and give you access to the site. If you do not receive this email, check
your spam folder because sometimes this email does not make it past spam

If You Are A Member and Cannot Login To The Site
If you are having problems logging in at the site, here are some suggestions:
1. Make sure you are logging in (located near the top right corner of
the home page) with the proper user name and password - your password
is case sensitive, so make sure your caps lock button is not on, and make
sure you are not adding any spaces that do not belong in your user name.
2. When you enter your user name and password, make sure you click on
the small box next to the login space called "remember me"
- that will make it so you do not have to login each time you come back
to the site
3. If you are logged in properly and you still cannot post, if you are
a new member of the site, there was a confirmation email you should have
received with a link inside that you either needed to click on or copy
and paste and put in your browser (where you type in a site you want to
visit) - this email confirms your email address and then gives you access
to the site. If you did not receive the email, check your spam folder,
as it may have been placed there. If you did not receive it at all - email
me back and I will finalize your registration for you.
4. If you are already a member, and have posted in the past, and cannot
post now, try the following:
- if it shows you are logged into the site, go to the bottom right
hand corner of the home page and "log out".
- then close the site
- then close your browser (meaning sign off the internet, whether you
use internet explorer, AOL, MSN, Netscape, etc...)
- once you are off the internet, you will then want to clear your "cookies"
- if you do not know how to do this, don't worry, it is not necessary
but can be helpful
- go back to the internet and sign back on to www.lawnsite.com
- go to the login screen and type in your user name and password and
click on "remember me"
