This Web site for locally owned Capital Nursery is a great informational resource for central California residents. SKDesigns worked closely with them to design and develop their site to reflect their longstanding reputation, reliability and variety of services at their three stores located in Sacramento, Citrus Heights, and Elk Grove.
Ongoing maintenance has included their regular onsite newsletter, online coupons, PDF document additions (Adobe Acrobat Reader), consulting, and other content and graphics updates.
Award Winning Web Site:
Capital Nursery's Web site won First Place in the prestigious 1999 Sacramento Web Awards, aka The Dotties, in the Science, Agriculture, Technology category. Capital Nursery's Web site was also one of top five Finalists in the 1998 Sacramento Web Awards, Retail category.

I think the site is beautiful. I am thrilled with the outcome. I greatly appreciate the support and advice.
This is like 'publishing' and I think you should be proud to have your name as the key player in the design. . . It would have been nice to think I could have done something like this, but now I am convinced that the pro's deserve respect.
Take a virtual bow.
Although the Capital Nursery Web site still has the original design that SKDesigns created in 1998, since the behind-the-scenes markup was based on standards (HTML 3.2, the latest W3C Recommendations for 1998), it remains a fully functional site that looks the same in modern browsers as it did in version 4 browsers in 1998, well over seven years ago now. How a Web site is built behind the scenes makes a gigantic difference.
