Default [Need] I need a few WordPress Templetes for lawn care service

I am looking for a few WordPress templates for my site. We offer full service lawncare service. I have seen some but not any I personally like. Does anybody have any or know of any that are good? Please let me know. Thanks in advanced!

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Do you plan on doing any blogging?
If not, I wouldn't bother with Wordpress.

It's a lot easier to create your own template/website using HTML5 and CSS, you'll have more freedom and control, and a better understanding of how everything works.

I find Wordpress too be a little too scattered when it comes to their code, and where it's placed.

Wordpress also has a lot of errors, as most of the widgets or plugins are usually created using different methods that don't get along very well.

have you found any templates you like but could later change the background images?

There are a few that are specifically designed for lawn care but I find them to be very lacking. What I have found is that you need to modify any template that you use such as changing the background image.

Cheese raises a good point, in that deciding whether WordPress is right for you is an important consideration. WordPress does take some time to set-up and learn, and you need to keep your site well maintained. Some people are into that stuff, while others aren't.

If learning WordPress is not for you, there are a heap of companies that offer hosted website building solutions (using your own domain name) for a low monthly fee. There are lots of dodgy looking ones, but SquareSpace is one that I think has some good-looking templates (not Wordpress).

All that being said, I use WordPress themes from WooThemes. There are some freebies, but most have a fee.

Websites are a little hobby of mine. Yes I am a WordPress lover. I use it on a personal family blog and have gotten pretty good at it. I have thought about making or having a standalone site made, but I am a creature of habit. I know WordPress good enough to build it out. I am planning on doing a few blog postings on the site, like little how to articles, but these are mainly going to be to get seo rankings. I feel that 90% of the people will not do it and will contact us for the service. Most will not have the tools to do it.
I know I can change the images and that is what I am more than likely going to do. Nothing is turnkey ever. There is always something we want different. I just mainly wanted to see a few templates and get some ideas in order to build ours. We have never had a site, never really needed one. Our business is 99% word of mouth from other customers. So I am doing this more of an image thing.

I just use wordpress Twenty Eleven and customize it with plug-ins and widgets. Check it out http://OrganicKen.com

First, I don't use it primarily as a blog. I make the front page static and make a page "kens blog" the blog page. A blog page will help generate more traffic using desired search term. You'll see I haven't added to my blogs, need to d this, lol

Then I use "form builder" plugin to add a response form to the bottom of each page that emails straight to me, instead of a comment form

I use "publicize" to add facebook "likes" and others on pages and posts.

I use "add meta tags" pluging to add meta data for SEO

"Google analyticator" to track things

and of course "jetpack" for widgets, stats, etc.

How's it look? do you think my coupon is too much? Thanks for your opinions!
