14. TURF

As turf is a living product, we can not guarantee any turf after it has been laid. Poor maintenance will result in turf becoming patchy, yellow or in poor condition. After we have laid your lawn you are entirely responsible for the condition of your lawn so therefore can not accept any responsibility after your lawn has been laid.


Although we will take necessary steps to prevent weed growth within your garden, after we have completed any works any works, leaves falling from trees, birds dropping seeds, airborne grass/hedge cuttings etc will always generated weed growth. therefore we can not be held responsible for any future weed growth within your garden and you, as the home owner are solely responsible for the maintenance in weed control.
