i guess your right about the 10% deal to much cut throat out there now and as far as being a image thief i did not claim to be the one who mowed those lawns i just thought it was great work and wanted to show them.
"Without proper, periodic lawn maintenance, the look and feel of your property will suffer. Our scheduling and pricing plans are very versatile and accommodating"
I don't like this phrase, anyone can give their lawn periodic lawn maintenance. Your trying to sell the idea that their lawn will suffer without the best and most frequent of care.
Come one now, your promising me you can maintain a lawn for cheaper price then anyone else? I guarentee you don't have the volume to be a wal mart. IYou are only hurting your profits along with everyone elses by making statements like this.
And it's boring. Otherwise good start. Id also suggest you take those pics down real fast if they aren't yours. You can easily ask people for pics, and many will gladly help you out.
your right anyone can give periodic care to a lawn but can they provide proper care and as for the pics there already off you should have checked before making remarks about them and who are you to pass judgement on me about what kind of volume i have. i came here for thoughts on the site not to be beaten down by everyone so if you can honestly tell me that lawns will not suffer without proper and periodic maintenance then maybe you should be in another line of work because you would be wrong.......
First, you cannot justify use of someone else's pictures by saying, "I never said I was the one who did the work. I just thought they looked nice."
The point of the matter is that when you create a website to advertise your business, your visitors assume that it's just that. Your business. If the work in the photos is not yours and there's nothing on the site to denote this, then you're misleading your viewers. Obviously if you're in south Jersey and you're displaying pictures of picturesque lawns in northern Indiana (as was the case with the aforementioned pictures), your customers are not going to be fooled by this anyway.
Secondly, while it's admirable that you and your web designer friend have started your own businesses, he has a long and not-so-fun road ahead of him if he is under the impression that it is acceptable to violate federal copyright laws by using other people's work without proper persmissions. There's a term for web designers that get into the habit of doing that: Unemployed.
