Additional Works

During our first visit/meeting on site to quote for any work, a visual inspection will have only taken place. This inspection doesn't involve any lifting/excavation or investigative work. So it is possible that upon starting any project there may be additional remedial work that hasn't been quoted for, Example – Replacing decking boards and the structural timbers underneath are rotten and need replacing but because the first visit was only visual and was unable to see the rotten timbers. If for any reason this does occur we will discuss the issue with you. We will agree a plan and cost to solve the issue. The additional work will be accepted and signed by you before we undertake the additional work.

Deviation of original work

During installation of works if for any reason you choose to change any materials, add any additional work this will alter the final. If it does increase the cost of the project you will have to agree and sign to accept for the additional work/costs before we go ahead and carry out the work requested.

Quote Validation

Your quotation will only be valid for 30 days from the date shown on the on top of you quote and will automatically be invalid thereafter.

Artificial grass installation

At the height of summer the ground can become very hard to work with, so we will request that you water your grass for a substantial amount of time the day before we are due to arrive as our machine will not work against hard dry ground. If this guide isn't followed and other machinery is required but not quoted for this will alter the final bill. Upon completing any artificial grass installation there’s a manufacturer’s guarantee on the grass. If we find any issues whilst fitting the grass this will be resolved with the suppliers/manufacturers immediately. However once fitted and we have finished and left site any damage to the artificial grass caused by carelessness and pets will not be covered by L.A Landscaping & Garden Care or the Manufacturers.

Safety

Upon starting any work when materials and machinery are delivered, we take no responsibility for any injures you/children/pets might incur. We will do everything to keep the site safe and secure. However materials such as stacks of bricks/slabs can be dangerous and very heavy. Also any excavation work trenches/ponds can be hazardous areas until the project is complete so we advise you stay away from any materials machinery until it is safe to do so.
