Not "wrong" and generally workable, just not best design.Best design should be the goal. (Ignoring the other argument re series resistor.)
According to my calculations that voltage divider would reduce 5V output from the Arduino to 4.926V at the MOSFET. That's the objection, I gather?
Here's the trick: Is this a fault of the FET? No!
I've changed my schematic, which unfortunately means this thread makes less sense, but I have posted the image in a few places now, and would rather that the (more) correct one appears in all those places.
I uploaded a fixed version. You might need to refresh the page.
