The new Lewes in Bloom website has finally launched!!
I absolutely loved doing this website because of all the beautiful flower pictures! Lewes in Bloom is a non-profit organization promoting the beautification and preservation of historic Lewes, Delaware. They plant and maintain beautiful gardens throughout the city, as well as host events, provide tips and tricks for gardening, and teach children about gardens and plants with their Children’s Learning Garden.
The website is built using a highly customized WordPress theme (Divi) and uses Woocommerce for the shop. All images on the website were taken and edited by Lewes in Bloom member Sue Sandmeyer and cropped by me to fit into the website. The client’s #1 request was that we not use any green on the site, which is hard to do for a website about flowers! We chose the pretty off-red color and it works so well, especially with the subject matter. The layout for the website is pretty straightforward: a full-width header followed by organized text on a majority of the pages.
There are 2 main features of the website: the shop and the gardens pages. The shop uses Woocommerce and Stripe to process payments. The client has been trained on how to add products to the store and has already added many of them on their own!
The gardens pages feature a full-width image of the garden, followed by a list of the plants at the location. There is a sidebar on the left that includes a map of all the gardens and a list of each garden page so you can easily access the garden you’d like to see.
