Plant and Construction Warranty
TerraScapes LLC, warrants plants to be true to name and in healthy growing condition when installed. It is then the responsibility of the owner to supply them with sufficient water, fertilizer and care during their growing season (May through October) to keep them healthy. Plant material planted in areas that do not have automated irrigation systems are not warrantied under any circumstances.
Newly installed landscape plants will suffer transplant shock, particularly during the hot summer months. It is imperative that plants receive proper care, so as to minimize stress. Trees and shrubs are warranted for one year from date of installation, and will be replaced once within the warranty period, should they die. Annuals, perennials, bulbs, ground cover, bare root plants under 4”, plants in containers above ground, client-supplied plants, transplants, grass seed, and sod are NOT warranted. Transplanting, in most circumstances, to ensure success, we may prune each plant moderately, to severely, as we see fit before its relocation is started.
TerraScapes LLC, will make warranty replacements during the optimum planting seasons: spring and fall. Typically, replacements will take place between March 1st through June 30th and September 1st through November 15th. These time frames are subject to change only at the discretion of TerraScapes LLC.
All construction shall, unless otherwise specified, carry a one-year warranty from the date on the invoice on materials and workmanship excluding Improper usage or willful abuse by the Architect/General Contractor, sub-contractors under general contractor or owner and any of their employees, neglected maintenance, misuse, vandalism, theft, physical and or chemical damage, neglect in watering or pest control, or in accounts over 45 days past due from date of invoice. Nor can we warranty due to adverse weather conditions (such as abnormal drought, heat, cold or wet conditions for your area), acts of God or acts of other persons not controlled by the company.
We will not replace plants that are experiencing stress or have "seasonal die-back", when pruning and proper care will restore them to health. Moving landscape plants from their original location will void the warranty. All material is warranted to be as specified and all work is to be completed in a workmanlike manner according to standard practices. Where applicable, manufacturers’ warranty shall apply
