    When submitting a site, please consider the following questions. The vast majority of sites submitted to this

    Is there landscape design content on your site ?

    If there isn''t, you''re in the wrong category. If your site sells stuff to landscapers, you''re in the wrong category (try Business: Industries: Construction and Maintenance: Materials and Supplies)

    Is the site just advertising for a local service ?

    There are two issues here. First, sites for local stores that do not offer online sales should go to the appropriate Regional/ category. This is the primary reason that sites don''t get listed here. If you don''t sell nationally, submit to an appropriate regional category. Second, a one-page web site with just information about a store, don�t belong in the directory.

    Is the site targeted at consumers ?

    Sites for wholesalers and distributors that do not sell to the general public go to Business/Industries/Wholesale ; sites for companies that make a product, but do not sell it to the general public directly, go to Business/Industries.

    Does the site have a list of services for sale ?

    If it doesn''t, it doesn''t belong in shopping

    Are prices posted or is there a reasonable process to get prices ?

    With landscape design, some sites may sell fixed priced designs, while others will require substantial interaction with the client before a price is derived.

    Can purchases be made from home ?

    This may be accomplished through a sophisticated shopping cart system, to a price list with a phone contact or just about anything in between.

    Would the site be likely to exist without sales ?

    This is another way of looking at whether the site belongs in shopping.

    Does the site have substantial original landscape design content ?

    This is not a requirement, but sites with substantial original content will be reviewed more favorably.

    Is the site only a collection of affiliate links only ?

    For a site with affiliate links to be listed, it should offer unique content

    Is the site a mirror of other sites ?

    Mirror sites contain the same content as another site, but have a different URL. We will only list sites once.

    Is the site substantially under construction ?

    If it is, please wait until you�ve finished before submitting.

    A landscape design provides a plan (or map) showing where plants should be installed to achieve a desired appearance.
