Jon, dreamweaver made by adobe may he a better choice for building a website, you can download free CSS templates and create a website that way, but it comes down to what you find easier to use

And also I will have help in the spring, either from my dad or my friend, and I actually have 3 friends that said they could help, so that is good. I don't want to get any mote lawns than 30 though. At least for now. And would you guys suggest a full color door hanger? Or keep using what I'm using because it works.

There are several companies on this site that use "stock" photos for their advertisements and the picture quality in those advertisements look good.

Usually, those who use "stock" photos won't try to claim that the work in the photo was done by them.

You have to decide what is right for you and your business.

Don't worry, the Landscaping Photo Police won't come and arrest you for using stock photos.
We used stock photos on our website and slowly replaced them with our own work as we grew, in the beginning we got ask all the time DID Y'ALL DO THAT WORK? I always said no of course, but I was a bit embarrassed honestly so we worked hard at getting our own work on there as quickly as possible.

And that's why i want to try to get a picture of my own work on it.

That's a really interesting project that was done a few years back. Would you like me to do something similar for your property?

Ok i have a question, i am sitting here doing a new door hanger design, and i put a toro mower in it. I covered any toro logos on it like where the gas tank is. There is nothing on it that says Toro. Would that be ok? I need some type of picture on there and i don't have any of me mowing. I might even put Matt's over the toro logo because that is my name. But is it ok to use? Most people could probably not tell by looking at it, but everyone on lawnsite could probably tell what brand it is.

If you're pressed for an honest answer, perhaps it would be wise to give your client an honest answer.

I think most people would expect to see the manufacturer's name on the mower and not your name.

Something like this should be fine unless you need permission to use the image:
