Landscape and Plant Warranty
Integrated Landscape Services would like to thank you for choosing us as your preferred landscape installer. The installed or purchased plant material is accompanied with limited warranty as follows:
Your landscape is accompanied with a limited warranty on the trees and shrubs provided and installed by Integrated Landscape Services per the standards below.
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. Upon installation or purchase it is then the responsibility of the owner to supply the plant with sufficient water and fertilizer (as needed) during their growing season (May to October) to keep them healthy.
Integrated Landscape Services assumes no liability for replacement of plants or sod killed damaged by pests, insect infestation, abnormal weather conditions, or other conditions beyond our control, nor will we replace plants experiencing “seasonal die-back”, when pruning and proper care will restore them to health.
Integrated Landscape Services cannot warranty against weed growth in mulch or topsoil beds, due to the germination of dormant seeds prevalent in the soil. This warranty shall be void and will not apply to any plants which were originally installed by Integrated Landscape Services, then subsequently repaired, adjusted, moved or modified by an individual or entity other than ILS.
There is no warranty on plants sold on sale or at discounted rates. In addition, annuals, perennials, bulbs, ground covers, customer provided plants, and transplanted plant material are NOT covered under this or any other Integrated Landscape Services Warranty.
Water, Water, Water! Your new plantings will need an inch of water per week for the first year. IF YOU FAIL TO WATER YOUR PLANTS, THEY WILL DIE. A PLANT THAT HAS DIED DUE TO DROUGHT IS NOT COVERED UNDER OUR GUARANTEE. In the heat of summer, you may have to water daily. Don’t forget to keep watering during fall! Soaker hoses and a timer system may be used to save time and money, however you must ensure that sufficient water penetrates the rootball of each plant. Water should pool up at the base of the plant when the soil has been adequately saturated. Water not only under the drip line of the plant, but also several feet out from this. Otherwise, dry soil will wick away moisture from roots. If planting occurs in the Spring water 3 times minimum per week, for the first 3 weeks, whether it rains or not, then after the first 3 weeks, water twice per week whether it rains or not. If the planting occurs in the Fall, and the plant still has leaves, following the aforementioned watering guidelines until the leaves fall off. If the plant has lost its leaves, soak thoroughly one time after planting. Begin watering again in the spring when the new foliage appears, following the aforementioned watering guidelines. Monitor the plants after the first 3 weeks and apply additional water as necessary. It is best to water early in the morning to prevent evaporation, or rot if watered too late in the day.
