    Found this site yesterday while surfing around on google so i thought i would post a message and say hello.

    I run my own Landscaping company in the UK, We are called Sunrise Landscaping We have been operating for about 6 months now and I have 2 crews 3 men per crew working on comercial sites such as supermarkets, petrol stations, industrial sites, and retail parks and various other sites.

    I really like this site lots of usfull information and advice I have been reading the content on here for ages very good.

    Does anyone know where I can get a website build for my company thats onething I lack is a good website I have been quoted $600 which to me is a little to high.

    Welcome Sunrise. I have learned a ton from this site. This is the place you want to be. Take time and familiarize yourself with the site. Also, the search feature is great. You can get questions answered from the thousands of archived threads.

    You can build a site yourself. Its not as hard as you might think. You can download a free trial of Dreamweaver 8. They have templates you can use and when the trail runs out you can use Nvu which is free. It just has no templates. I know someone that uses Yahoo Business for theirs and it gives you most of the tools you need apparently but I think that may be more than you are looking for. You can generally find someone at a university that does sites for extra cash. Do you have your own server or are you looking for a hosting company?
