By the way, this isn't anything personal but I would like to know if you are licensed and carry insurance?

I only ask the question to prove something to another member that asked me the same thing.

I appreciate whatever you can tell me.
Yes, i am both licensed and insured. I am a freshman college student and started this business with a friend for the season. We originally just wanted to have a "mow and go" operation but people ask us from time to time to do some small basic landscaping or some odd jobs.

Don't get me wrong, CAD still has it's place, but it's definitely not in the marketing and sales side. There are way too many programs that handle 3D and rendering so much better. If you have the time try using google sketchup mixed with Bunkspeed Hypershot for some 3D renderings. Its all about the creativity!
We taking a look at the RLA software, it is much easier and appealing for residential users. The plant list is pretty extensive.

Thanks for pointing us into this direction.
