It is the sole responsibility of the homeowner to ensure adequate watering and maintenance of all plant material after installation, and during the period of warranty.
We make every effort to source the plants indicated in your design/contract, however plant selections, numbers and sizes are subject to substitution, should stock become unavailable. Homeowners will be notified of the most suitable substitution in advance of installation.
