2.5 Every reasonable care has been taken to ensure that the descriptions are accurate, however specifications may change. The limitations of colour reproduction and the individual colour settings of your screen may mean a slight variation.

Natural Products

Natural products refer to any products which are grown or excavated form the ground.

Natural Products we use consist of timber and stone.

Where natural products are being used they may have colour variations

Any colour variations on natural products are not considered a faulty product or defective.

Where timber is used such as railway sleepers or fence panels, this wood will change colour over time which is not considered a defect or fault.

Wood will shrink, swell, twist, move, split and may crack. This is not considered a fault or defect but a change in the moisture content

Wood & Stone such as Paving will weather which will cause a change in colour.

Natural Stone Products will have variations in colour, this is not a fault or defect but an element of its natural source.

Sealants

We recommend that pattern concrete is sealed on a regular basis.

A regular basis is usually every 12 months but is dependable on the amount of use it receives.

The original sealant will wear over time and will cause the colour to fade.

This is not considered a defect or fault but a natural cause of wear & tear and weathering.

Any failure to maintain your pattern concrete will void any warranties or guarantees.

Natural Stone products such as Indian Stone, Paving, Blocks etc will require sealing.

Lawn Land do not provide this service.

If the stone is not sealed it is open to absorb moisture which in turn will cause weathering and colour fading.

Failure to maintain your natural products will void any warranty or guarantees

In the event that the warranty is to be relied upon, evidence of maintenance will be required.

Bases

Where concrete bases are installed for shed or cabins, we will ensure that the concrete is level.

Bases/slabs should not be walked on or any objects to be inserted into the base. Should this occur then it is the sole responsibility of the customer.

Any rain or debris that lands on the surface is not the responsibility of Lawn Land Artificial Grass.

All concrete will take a minimum of 7 days to cure and will continue to cure over time.

Tree Stumps

Lawn Land Artificial Grass cannot remove tree stumps.

Tree stumps require stump grinders which is a separate profession

Where we encounter tree stumps that require removal we will advise accordingly

These will have to be removed professionally before we can continue the works in that area.

Lawn Land will not be liable for any delay or impact this may have on completion of works.
