We had worked with the Great Plant Picks team on the Miller Garden site, and they wanted to update the Great Plant Picks existing site to allow for more detailed and useful plant searches. We redeveloped the site from the ground up. With the help of programmer Jon Gross (check out Jon’s underwater photography at jongrossphotography.com) we developed a new MySQL database and programmed extensive search functions using the PHP framework CodeIgniter. With graphic design assistance from Constance Bollen of cbgraphics, great photographs by Richie Steffen, and some CSS3 design touches, we’ve developed a site that is both useful and beautiful. Print stylesheets allow for printing individual plant fact sheets, or plant lists, and site users can email custom plant lists to themselves, clients, and friends.
