Mowing will be performed every week , a turf height between 3 ½ -4 ½ inches will be maintained without removing more than 1/3 of the total leaf blade height.

Landscape Enhancement Terms & Conditions
Landscape and Plant Warranty
GGLS, would like to thank you for choosing us as your preferred landscape installer. The installed plant material is accompanied with a 6 Month limited warranty as follows:
Your landscape is accompanied with a 6 Month limited warranty on the trees and shrubs installed by GGLS maintained 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 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. Trees and shrubs are warranted for one year from date of installation, and will be replaced once within the warranty period, should they die.
GGLS, will make warranty replacements during the optimum planting seasons: spring and fall. Typically, replacements will take place between May 1st through June 30th and September 1st through November 15th.
Transplanted plant material(s) shall not be guaranteed or warranted under any circumstance.
GGLS, assumes no liability for replacement of plants killed or 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.
GGLS, cannot warranty against weed growth in mulch or topsoil beds, due to the germination of dormant seeds prevalent in the soil.
This warranty does not cover plants that do not survive due to failure to provide normally accepted horticultural planting care and/or maintenance.
This warranty shall be void and will not apply to any plants which were originally installed by GGLS, then subsequently repaired, adjusted, moved or modified by an individual or entity other than GGLS.
Perennials have a 60 day warranty.
Annuals are seasonal and die at the end of each season and are not covered under any warranty.
How to obtain replacements.
customer must contact Green Glow Landscape Solutions within one year from the date of installation. Liability is limited to the replacement of plants and/or trees of the same or comparable plants and/or trees. no credit or refund will be given. This warranty is subject to payment of the original invoice being made within the terms of sale and account must be current.
All estimates are final and payment is due upon completion. Completion is defined by the amount of sod estimated, for a specific area or location i.e. backyard, front yard etc. While GGLS makes every effort to measure accurately there are situations where the actual sod needed may be more or less than the estimated amount. This is due to the difficulty measuring abnormal shapes and geometrical designs present in a given landscape. In the event a client wants or needs more sod than the amount estimated / invoiced the original amount is still due in full and the remaining sod will be quoted separate at the same per unit pricing as the original estimate / invoice. This extra sod will be scheduled within 7 business days and will be considered a separate job / invoice payable upon completion. If there is any surplus of sod upon completion, client can choose to keep the remaining sod or have GGLS discard it at no extra charge. No refund will be given for having extra sod as GGLS made a good faith effort to have enough sod to complete your project.
Cancellation may only occur greater than 72 hours prior to the scheduled date of installation. If canceled less than 72 hours, the job will be billed for the cost of the sod materials only as sod is a perishable product and cannot be resold.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SOD AND SEED ARE NOT COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY. BOTH REQUIRE ATTENTION AND PROPER MAINTENANCE ON A DAILY BASIS. LACK OF PROPER MAINTENANCE FOR ONE DAY COULD CAUSE BOTH OF THESE ITEMS TO DIE.
With sod installation, more than any other service, the long-term success of the project depends largely on the homeowner. As a customer, all the power is in your hand-which is a good thing for you to be aware of. Your most important job as a proactive customer is to take good care of your new sod once it’s been laid down. You’ll need to water it daily for the first several weeks and apply treatments as directed. Before that time comes, though, be sure to ask informed questions. When you combine high-quality, healthy sod with a thorough installation process and proper maintenance, you can expect great results.
