For this post, we gathered up the best lawn, gardening, and landscaping WordPress themes for 2017. If you’re a developer putting together a small business site for a landscaping client, or you’re the owner of a gardening service searching for a DIY solution, you just might find what you’re looking for here.
To keep things current, we limited this list to themes released during the past year. All designs reflect modern trends, and all features/coding use up-to-date technology and techniques. The themes were selected by hand, and only a loose ordering is intended. As usual, we turned up a couple of favorites that topped the list, but that’s largely subjective, and rooted in personal taste.
Finally, should you need web hosting for your landscaping business, we recommend Bluehost.
Top spot goes to WS Garden. This responsive WordPress gardening and landscaping theme includes five custom homepage styles and Visual Composer for creating an endless amount of new page layouts. The design is bright, modern, and professional.
