Free Lawn Care Website Template

Free Lawn Care Website Template

Are you looking for a free lawn care website template?  If so, this guide will help you better understand the pros and cons of a free lawn care website template.  Most lawn care business owners are looking for a website template to speed up the process and get a better looking website.  More often than not, you will waste hours messing with the template and only have a semi-functional website.  A lot of our clients started with a free lawn care website template and eventually gave up when they realized we could set up a lawn care website for the same cost as hosting without all the wasted time and frustration!

Examples of free lawn care website templates

If you are set on using a free lawn care website design template there are a few options to consider:

Option 1:  Square Space – https://www.squarespace.com/

Square space will allow you to set up a free lawn care website template.  However, you will need to spend a lot of time customizing their templates to apply the the lawn care industry.  In addition, you will likely need to pay for some stock photography ($$$) at a place like istockphoto.com .   Once you get your lawn care website template set up you will probably realize that it’s not as professional looking as you had hoped.   You will then be on the hook for the approximately $20/month hosting cost which will be on a shared server.  More on that later.

Option 2:  Wix – https://www.wix.com/

Another option to consider that is similar to Square Space is Wix.com.   Wix is a competitor to Square Space and essentially another place to get a free lawn care website template.  Once again, you will need to spend a lot of time customizing the website and the end results never look as nice as the “easy to use” interface would seem to imply.  You will also need to pay for hosting costs through Wix which will run you approximately $20/month of a shared server. In addition, you will likely need to pay for some stock photography ($$$) at a place like istockphoto.com .

Option 3:  Get a free WordPress Template

You can download a number of free lawn care website templates at Athemes.com.  Similar to the lawn care website builders listed above, you will need to spend a lot of time getting wordpress set up and then customizing each theme.  WordPress is extremely complex and is very time consuming to learn.   Each theme will have unique properties and things you need to figure out.  You will likely spend hours learning your theme so that you can customize it to be a free lawn care website template you like.  In addition, you will also need to find a website server provider and sign up for shared hosting or dedicated hosting.  We recommend dedicated hosting which should run in the range of $40 to $60/month. In addition, you will likely need to pay for some stock photography ($$$) at a place like istockphoto.com .

A quick note about Shared Hosting.  The “free” website builders will put you on shared hosting.  To save money, these websites will buy a single server and then cram thousands of websites all on the same server.  This means that when traffic to other websites (not yours) is high, your website will run slowly because the bandwidth is being used by other websites on the same server.  A dedicated server ensures your website runs quickly so your customers don’t get frustrated!

The Challenges of free lawn care website templates

It may seem like a time saving shortcut to get a lawn care website template.  Unfortunately it usually ends with a lot of time invested, frustration, and a website that doesn’t appeal to customers.

Before you select a free lawn care website template, there are a few things you should know.  Most lawn care business owners are busy and looking for a fast solution.  They don’t have time to develop a website from scratch.  The assumption is that lawn care website templates will allow you to save time and streamline the process.  Unfortunately, that’s rarely the case.

Here are some of the challenges you will face with a free lawn care website template:

  • Save time?  Think again – Unfortunately most free lawn care website templates are not designed to be user friendly.   You will spend hours learning how to modify the template to get it just right.  Certain aspects of your business won’t perfectly fit the template so things will need to be adjusted.  Learning how to make adjustments and modify the template are extremely time consuming.

  • Hosting – Before you even get started on your website template you’ll need to find hosting.  You’ll need to determine the correct server to get and then install wordpress or some other software to implement your new template.

  • Professional Photography –  Does your new lawn website template include professional photography?  Most don’t.  What you end up with is a cheap looking website.   Professional photography makes a huge difference to your website.

  • SEO Optimized? –  Is your new lawn care website search engine optimization ready?  If not, how will you implement that?   If you want to be found easily online your website need to be SEO optimized so that when customers search for your business name they can easily find you online.

  • Mobile Friendly –  Having a mobile friendly website is very important.  Customers will be searching for your business from their phones.  If your website doesn’t display properly you might be missing out on leads.   A lawn care website template should be mobile friendly!

  • Data backup –  If your website files were comprised or something went wrong, do you have a backup in place?  Most lawn care website templates don’t include any type of data backup.  You will need to figure out data backup on your own.

A better solution – Lawn Care Domains

All of the free lawn care website templates are not really “free”.  There are hosting costs, image costs, and then of course the most important cost which is your valuable time.   At LawnCareDomains.com we make it easy to get a professional quality lawn care website hosted on our super fast dedicated servers for the same price you would be paying for a “free” template.   The best part?  We set up everything quickly so you don’t have to waste all your time!

How it works

We designed the process from the ground up to make everything simple.  Below are exactly the steps to get your lawn care website up and running quickly.

Template Customization

Every lawn care business is unique.  Your company may offer lawn care, sprinkler service, fall clean up, and power washing, while another lawn care business may only offer lawn care services.  With that in mind, we will customize the templates to meet your needs.  As you review the templates below, keep in mind that we can modify each template to match the services that your business provides.

We want you to know up front exactly what is included, and what will cost extra.  If you would like to customize your website and the service is not included, the cost will be billed at a rate of $50/hour.  Below is a list of what is included and what would will cost additional.

Included

  • Color Scheme Changes: Don’t like the color on the demo website?  No problem.  We can customize the color scheme for free.  Many clients already have an existing logo they want to use.  We’ll update your website to match the color scheme of your logo.

  • Additional Services:  We can easily add and remove services from the website.  If your company doesn’t offer sprinkler service we can remove it.  If your company offers power washing services, we can easily add a section to the website to cover a service we don’t have listed.

  • Replacing Photos:  Don’t like a photo we used on the website?  We can update any photo free of charge.   Select any photo you like from shutterstock.com and we’ll purchase it and replace any photos you want to change.  You can also provide us photos that you have taken and we can use those as well.

  • Updating Content:  Updating the text on your website is always free of charge.  Please note that you must send us the updated text as we do not write content.

Not Included

  • Adding Pages:  If you would like to add additional pages to the website this will be billed hourly.  Most new pages can be added in 1 to 2 hours.  Please note that you are still required to provide us with the written content and for selecting photos for each new page you add.

  • Phone Calls:  While we are happy to update your website, all website customization must be requested and discussed via email.  Out of respect for your time and our time, we will not sit on a phone call with you while you tell us all the things you want to change.

  • Changing Design Elements:  We are happy to duplicate part of the design that is already on the website, like adding a new service.  If you want to change the existing design in any way or add something that isn’t already there, this will be billed at a rate of $50/hour.

  • Payment Processor:  Our company works exclusively with Stripe to accept payments online.  Other payment processors may require developer time to integrate and accept payments online and will be billed at a rate of $50/hour.  Making the “Pay Online” button link to an external website to accept payment like Paypal is free.
