The Brief.

Chaffins approached us in June 2016 and asked us to quote to rebuild their existing website in WordPress.

This was a pretty straightforward project as they didn’t want to change the design/layout much (if at all) and already had the bulk of the content ready to go. It was simply taking what was already there, converting to WordPress and ensuring that it was mobile/tablet friendly.

We had already worked with them on a few previous projects.

The Solution.

Starting with a blank canvas, we developed this custom WordPress theme from the ground up, using the bare minimal amount of plugins and code.

We established the core requirements early on in the process, allowing us to efficiently build a wireframe, based on the website’s final structure which helped speed up the overall process.

The website is split up until several sections; domestic tree surgery, commercial tree surgery, as well as other services such as fencing, hedge cutting, grounds maintenance and stump removal.

There is only really one page template used throughout, with slight modifications on a ‘page by page’ basis.

Most of the ‘heavy-lifting’ was done using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin, making it very simple for the client to add and edit the content.

The website consists of several gallery style pages, a few static content pages, a blog and a contact page – nice and simple!

We made sure to focus on tablets/smartphones when developing the website, and it has been designed so it adapts well to these devices.

The Result.

The website was ‘signed off’ in early 2016 after the finishing touches were applied and final images added.

We have had very positive feedback from both the client and the general public on this website and, to date, it is one of our favourite projects because of it’s simplicity and modern look/feel.
