Terms & Conditions – Artificial Grass
QUALITY OF GOODS
Due to the nature of artificial grass when rolled and due to the structure of the artificial grass it may crease and may flatten slightly. Creases will fall out following installation (normally within three months) and any flattening will lift. The artificial grass shall be deemed not to be faulty if when delivered or installed there are creases within it or if it is flat.
Love It Lawns will use its reasonable endeavours to reduce the appearance of the joins. However seams are occasionally visible due to the molecular structure of the product. This is unfortunately inevitable and can be influenced by a number of factors. Our warranty does not cover seam visibility.
Artificial grass will in some circumstances curl, flatten and crush, the extent of this will depend on the extent of its usage and the amount of traffic passing on it. This shall be deemed not to be a fault.
Artificial grass from different batches of manufacture may differ slightly in colour. Love It Lawns will, in respect of any one order, supply grass from the same batch. However, artificial grass supplied under different orders is unlikely to be from the same batch and therefore may differ in colour. Any such colour variation shall be deemed not to be a fault.
The artificial grass supplied may differ slightly in colour from any samples sent and also from any samples shown on any website or promotional literature due to the limitations of reproducing images on the website or in such literature.
All of the grasses sold by Love It Lawns are covered by a Manufacturers UV anti fade Warranty (Details available on request)
Protect heavy traffic areas – perhaps lay a paving slab or two directly under the stepping point from your home to take the initial impact from the step down. The initial step down can cause the artificial grass fibres to sit in different directions or go flat making it appear different from the rest of the area. This will not be deemed as a fault
Rotate equipment – Football goals, slides, trampolines, outdoor tables and chairs are also high impact areas. We recommend moving these types of equipment from time to time to ensure even wear conditions on the artificial grass and brush the area with a stiff broom to stimulate the grass pile and freshen it up. It is normal for the artificial grass to sit flatter in these high use areas and shall not be deemed as a fault.
Placement of decorative pieces in your garden – You need to consider whether there are any mirrors, shiny features or any glass adjacent to the artificial grass area. The sun rays can be reflected and magnified onto the artificial grass and could cause scorching. Therefore it is important that you, the customer, consider their placement is not in direct sunlight. Any such damage is not covered by the guarantee and repairs to scorched grass will be chargeable at our discretion.
Maintenance is required – Love It Lawns cannot guarantee that no weeds will grow in the surface or around the edges of any of their products. If weeds or moss do appear these can be removed safely either manually or by the use of any domestic weed/moss killer. In the case of dogs it will be necessary to clean the artificial grass with an artificial grass pet cleaner once a week to minimise any odours. While we can never guarantee this will completely remove all odours it will help reduce any.
All installation work carried out is guaranteed for a period of 2 years against faulty workmanship directly attributed by us. The exclusions to this are damage caused by natural causes such as ground movement or storm damage etc. or damage caused by the customer or lack of maintenance after completion.
Our installation warranty does not cover drainage issues / drainage problems after installation. We make sure we install the correct base, using the correct materials for artificial grass installation. However, we advise that any underlying drainage issues should be addressed by you prior to installation. If in doubt you should seek advice. Issues that occur on the surface of the grass due to heavy rain downpours will not be deemed as a fault, in most usual circumstances the water will naturally disperse. Although we can help by installing extra drainage we cannot guarantee it will always remove all existing drainage issues.
The customer shall ensure that once an installation date as been agreed in writing, the job can be carried out.
Love it Lawns will ensure that the all attempts will be made to keep the agreed installation date however occasionally due to the weather, late deliveries and jobs just running over, it may be necessary for us to change the install date. If this is the case we will let you, the customer, know at our earliest opportunity.
Prior to our arrival please ensure that parking for a van and trailer is available and that access to the garden is cleared to enable wheelbarrows and machinery to get to and from the garden.
We also ask that you continue to mow your existing lawn as our machinery has problems getting through long grass.
It is the obligation of you, the customer, to inform us, Love it Lawns, of any electrical cables or pipework in the installation area that could be damaged by excavations or fixings. We will endeavour to identify such issues during a site visit but cannot accept liability for damaged caused if not previously notified.
Love It Lawns bares no liability for any damage caused by invasive plants such as Japanese knotweed, bamboo, mare’s tail, tree root growth or bulbs etc that might spread beneath the installed artificial lawn and cause material changes to the installation or damages to the artificial grass. Repairs to damage caused by invasive plants will be chargeable.
Love It Lawns cannot be responsible for any subsidence due to natural ground movement or to ground that had previously been excavated within 3 years of our arrival ie: New Build property.
Love It Lawns bares no liability for damage caused by either domestic animals or wild animals including Badgers, Moles, Rodents or Foxes or any other domestic or non-domestic animal.
FORCE MAJEURE – Neither Love it Lawns or the customer shall be liable for any delays or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay of failure results from event or circumstances outside of reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, strikes, accidents, war, fire, breakdown of plant or machinery, the act or omission of government, extreme weather conditions such as heat or flooding, highway authorities or any telecommunications carrier, operator or administration or other competent authority, or delay or failure in manufacture, production, or supply by third parties of equipment or services, and the party shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of it obligations after notifying the other party of the nature and extent of such events.
