Landscape and Plant Warranty
Weidner Landscape would like to thank you for choosing us as your preferred landscape installer. The installed or purchased plant material is accompanied with a 1 year limited warranty as follows:
Your landscape is accompanied with a 1 year limited warranty on the plant material installed by Weidner Landscape, and a 1 year limited warranty on trees and shrubs purchased through Weidner Landscape if installed and 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, 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 during their growing season (May to October) to keep them healthy. Trees and shrubs are warranted for one year from the date of installation or purchase, and will be replaced once within the warranty period, should they die.
Weidner Landscape 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.
Weidner Landscape 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.
Weidner Landscape 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 Weidner Landscape, then subsequently repaired, adjusted, moved or modified by an individual or entity other than Weidner Landscape.
There is no warranty on wholesale priced plants nor plants sold on sale or at discounted rates. In addition, annuals, perennials, bulbs, ground covers, and transplanted plant material are NOT covered under this or any other Weidner Landscape Warranty.
Required Plant Installation Techniques and Maintenance:
Make sure you know what conditions your plant needs to thrive. Our plants are kept in optimal conditions at the nursery, while in transport and in storage.Once in the ground on the clients property, responsibility of the welbeing of the plant falls to the client unless a maintenance contract with Weidner Landscape is established. Always feel free to ask for advice!
Install your new plant correctly:
Dig a hole as deep as the plant’s root ball and twice as wide. The crown of the plant (where the roots and trunk meet) should be at or slightly above the soil surface.
If roots are circling tightly in the pot, tease them out by hand or cut them in a few places if necessary.
Loosen any burlap tied around the crown. You may remove it if you desire, but this is not necessary as the burlap will dissolve in the soil. Be sure not to break the root ball while planting.
Use the native soil to backfill the hole. If your soil is poor, mix amendments with the native soil. Amendments for clay soil include gypsum, manure, compost and peat moss. For sandy soil, use peat moss and organic matter.
Firm the soil around the rootball, but don’t compact. Mulch the area, using a 2″-3” layer of high-quality mulch. Use caution as to not mound soil at the base of the plant. You may fertilize at this time, but it is not necessary.
Stake your plant if necessary. Remove any stakes after a minimum of 6 months.
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 root ball 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 the 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.
Weidner Landscape would like to thank you for choosing us as your preferred hardscape installer. Your hardscape is accompanied by a 2 year limited warranty on all labor and a limited lifetime warranty on the blocks, pavers, and rocks themselves.
Weidner Landscape primarily works with the following manufacturers of precast concrete material: Belgard, Oaks, Unilock, and Techo Bloc. These manufacturers of hardscape products (ie. concrete pavers and wall block) carry their own lifetime warranties which may vary from one to another. These lifetime warranties apply to the precast block or paver specifically. The specifics of the product warranty can be confirmed with the selected block product manufacturer.
This warranty is strictly limited to contract work performed by Weidner Landscape. From the date of installation, Weidner Landscape guarantees your hardscape installation from settlement of pavers and walls, and from separation of wall units for a 2 year period under normal wear for which the installation was designed. For example if vehicles or equipment are driven over a walkway causing settling of pavers, and the walkway was designed and installed for pedestrian use only, Weidner Landscape. will not be held accountable for damage from these actions.
Extreme circumstances including but not limited to fire, vehicular accidents, excessive flooding, excessive freezing, or incredible force or impact causing damage to work installed by Weidner Landscape are not covered under this or any other Weidner Landscape warranty.
This warranty does not apply to efflorescence. Efflorescence is a naturally occurring process in all concrete products that sometimes appears in the form of a white powdery film on the pavement surface. It does not, in any way, compromise the functionality or the structural integrity of the product. Although efflorescence cannot be prevented, it will wash off over time or can be cleaned with an efflorescence cleaner. Weidner Landscape accepts no responsibility or liability for this condition.
In order to enforce the rights under this warranty, the owner should promptly notify Weidner Landscape of the specific item or items of concern. Weidner Landscape shall respond to such warranty request within a reasonable amount of time. Any emergency requests will be given immediate attention. If Weidner Landscape finds in its reasonable judgment that the item or items requiring attention are covered by this warranty, it will promptly proceed to repair and/or replace the defective materials or workmanship, at its sole cost and expense, except to the extent it finds that such repairs have been made necessary by the negligence or intentional misconduct of the owner, or any party or parties associated with owner.
This warranty shall be void and will not apply to any materials which were originally installed by Weidner Landscape, then subsequently repaired, adjusted, or modified by an individual or entity other than Weidner Landscape or its authorized representative. If blocks are chosen by the client outside of the aforementioned preferred manufactures, Weidner Landscape defaults to the warranties provided by the chosen manufacturer and cannot warranty materials past that.
Replacements and/or repairs furnished under this warranty shall not carry a new warranty, but shall carry only the unexpired portion of the original warranty provided. No person is authorized to make any warranties other than those described above or to extend the duration of any warranties beyond the time period described above.
