The new Gardenscape website is live and, though it still has some teething issues, it's looking good!
We would love some feedback though. Please take the website for a test-drive and let us know what you think. Have you got some more questions we could add to the FAQ section? What do you think of the photography? Are the products easy to find?
And most importantly - does it make you want to go out there and start planting...?
Yes, it's here - the new Gardenscape e-commerce website is now live. Just a few minor details to sort out but it's looking good so far.
Many thanks to Rob and Lisa at Finally for all their work over the last couple of months, and for the support they will no doubt have to give us over the coming weeks while we work out how to cope with the new and very comprehensive admin system!
We got there! The new bourneamenity.co.uk website has been launched and is now fully operational. Still a few minor bits and pieces to add and adjust but it's all looking quite smart, we think.
We are already getting about 1000 visits per day but some of these are from the search engines, updating their records. Another interesting, but odd statistic is that the most visited page is Products/Grass - I wonder what kind of grass the visitors are looking for...
With the new Bourne Sport site well established and new sites for Gardenscape and John Bourne & Co coming online in the next couple of weeks, we'll soon have the full set of Group websites in commission.
Many thanks to Alex and Liam at Lunar Works for their lovely design and clever coding!
We are working very hard on renewing the group's range of websites. The old ones are beginning to look dated and website technology, as well as fashion, moves on very quickly. The new Bourne Sport site is already up and running, showing some interesting case studies from the contracting activities. Meanwhile, the Gardenscape and Bourne Amenity sites are likely to go live early in the New Year. That leaves the John Bourne & Co site, which we will do in-house, and the bourne.uk.com Bourne Group portal site, which should go live over the holidays (but you can have a sneak preview here).
The Gardenscape site will be a full e-commerce site, allowing visitors to order their materials with a quick click (and credit card number, to be sure!). Bourne Amenity will be showcasing the full range of products and delivery options, majoring on technical specs and usage case studies. And the John Bourne site will try to show both the haulage side and the "traditional" farming support services with lime and compost spreading.
We will then have four main sites, each representing one arm of the business; a portal site directing visitors to whichever main site is most relevant, as well as providing quick contact information; and of course this site, The Bourne Connection, keeping you uptodate with news and events across the business.
