A standard hosting package will work fine. You generally get a basic page with an option to grow down the road.

I like to keep things simple, simple graphics (quick to load), easy to read text, and not too background graphic intense. I'm still working on my page, have it linked to my vehicle page at the moment, and will more than likely keep it there as it's cost effective.

Buy your domain name and get hosting:

Install wordpress (www.wordpress.org) and pick a (free) theme. It'll be able to grow with you as you grow and you'll be able to hire someone to customize the look to match your company branding once you can afford it.

If you need help installing wordpress or want to go right for a custom theme send me a PM (do it before you buy hosting). That's what I do. Or I can just give you a few pointers if you get stuck.

Thanks for the recommendation, and great work on your site!

We definitely aren't the cheapest out there. But you get your domain registration/renewal included, and we offer discounts for yearly payment making us close to the same price as those other guys. And unlike them, we are focused on creating great Landscaper sites.
