BCLNA: Plant Something BC

the project

Sparkjoy built a website with integrated, automated, and fully customized data-based Google maps that allow visitors to search for garden centres and landscapers across British Columbia.  Site visitors can search the directory by city name or postal code to find the service nearest to them.

The data is managed across the BCLNA network of sites where the content is housed in one central location and displayed on any of the websites as needed. Social sharing is just a click away without the use of site slowing third party scripts, and our suite of caching tools mean the large and beautiful imagery loads in a snap.

In 2021, Sparkjoy redesigned the website to better highlight the site’s content, including databases, videos, and programs. Sparkjoy also designed and built a blog for the website. It was a limited redesign that took the existing site’s design and modernized it. A minimalist aesthetic was used, paired with bright highlight colours and vibrant imagery to invoke the joy of gardening.
