    Done and done. Homeowner was a great guy, might even let him in on it and film for hilarity and enjoyment. Must be a real pro, bartering for jet skis. Wonder who did the patio he posted?

    Got top billing in his other ad I just found.
    Clue #2 is that his guy needs dental work. Real class act

    HAppens all the time bro.

    You don't watermark your online content you're inviting this to happen. The other week i posted pics of our boulder wall and 2 walkways. Go back and look at my pics - they're watermarked.

    Once you put stuff online it's anyone's for the taking.

    I need to get on that but you think that he might be a little more creative, we service the same areas! My ad shows up with his! Difference is that mine has my business name, phone number, and website!

    If i was stealing pics i would do it from across the country or something. This guy literally reposted on craigs with a crappier ad.

    (Not sure why you're displaying pics if unfinished jobs. No established turf, no mulch) mumbled under my breath....

    Some of us don't have 20 years of pics to choose from. I tried selling him sod but he was out of money after redoing the house
