Lawn & Plant Warranty

Lawn

Seeded lawns will require additional overseeding by the homeowner/customer for the first few years after installation. Sod provides an instant lawn but is very expensive. Seeding and hydroseeding takes time and usually one to three years of additional seeding for the lawn to reach its full potential. Whether it's a new lawn or an established lawn, all lawns require aerating and overseeding.

We provide an aerate, overseed and compost (AOC) service to all our customers in the fall since late August - mid October is the best time for seeding. We are happy to provide an estimate for this service.

Plant Warranty

Your success in growing landscape plants largely depends on the care they receive. Quality soil, sufficient water and proper drainage are all necessary for your plants to thrive.

Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc. (Lynch) warrants plants to be true to name and in healthy growing conditions when installed by Lynch. The owner and/or customer should supply them with sufficient water, fertilizer and diseases/insect control treatments to keep them healthy. Failure to follow provided watering instructions will void the warranty.

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. Trees and shrubs are under warranty for one year from date of installation, and will be replaced once within the warranty period, should they die. Annuals, perennials, bulbs, and ground cover are NOT covered under a warranty. Lynch 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 October 31st. These time frames are subject to change based on weather, schedule and/or availability at the discretion of Lynch.

Plants are covered by a one-time, one-year warranty from installation date. Warranty does not cover replacement labor, "Acts of God", man-made calamities, perennials, annuals, transplants and any plants not supported by an underground drip line irrigation system installed and maintained by Lynch. Warranty does not cover transplants. Warranty only valid for good standing and current accounts.

Lynch assumes no liability for replacement of plants killed or damaged by animals, pests, insect infestation, disease(s), salt/calcium (near roads and walkways), abnormal and extreme weather conditions (lower than normal temperatures in the winter, high winds, flooding, drought conditions, etc.), 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. Transplanting, re-planting or moving landscape plants from their original location will void the warranty. Freight, labor and other costs are not included. The warranty is only valid for plants installed between April 15th and October 31st. In addition, an automatic irrigation system must be installed at the property in order for the warranty to be valid.

  • Annuals
