Landscape Construction 


The agreed final quote represents a written contract for the exact work to be completed at the price quotedScope of quoted work: workThe quote written by MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance for the client represents the client's requests. It is not a builder’s survey and we will not be held liable for any task that is not included in the written quote. Electrical power, water and WC facilitiesThe client will be expected to provide electrical power, running water and toilet facilities where reasonably possible.



Irrespective of any insurance carried by MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance, the customer must inform his or her insurer that building works are to be carried out on the property and satisfy himself or herself that he/she is adequately covered by insurance. Unless expressly agreed, MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance are not liable for the loss of or damage to the works, materials on site or any property of the customer, unless the same is caused by negligence.



All necessary materials can and will be provided by us unless otherwise agreed and will always be of high quality and used appropriately as per the manufacturer’s guidelines. Where it is necessary to match existing decor, our work will be carried out, using appropriate materials that provide an exact match where possible. If an exact match will not be achievable, the client will be consulted. MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance is not responsible for the performance or suitability of any materials, parts or products purchased directly by the client and allows MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance to use these at their own risk.


Changes to your quote

Any quote or estimate is subject to revision if there are any changes to the nature or extent of the requested work. This may apply to both labour and materials. However, the quote will not be amended without consultation with the client.


Completion timescales

Estimated completion times are guidelines and although we will endeavour to complete the work in the time frame intimated, we will not be held liable for failure to complete the scheduled works within the estimated time frame. Similarly, it may be that by employing extra resources we can finish a project more quickly than estimated. In this case, the price of the quote will remain the same. Damages and sub-standard workmanship are the responsibility of the client: Assistance can be provided with the repositioning and/or removal of bulky furniture items and white goods but will incur an additional charge. We reserve the right to decline to move white goods if the condition or position of the plumbing may incur a higher-than-normal risk of damage to the equipment or the property. We reserve the right to decline to move particularly heavy or bulky items if they present a higher-than-accepted health and safety risk. Where items cannot be covered or protected, but could easily have been removed, we will request that they be removed beforework commences. We cannot be held liable for damage to such items if they are not removed. In the event of breakage or damage to the property, MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance will notify the client immediately and set out steps to remedy the situation.

Similarly, if at the end of the job, the client is dissatisfied with any aspect of the service, they must inform us as soon as possible. Clients must allow MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance to affect a remedy using our tradespeople and under no circumstances will we be held liable for the costs of reparations by third parties that we have not expressly agreed to in writing. The client must notify us in writing within 24 hours of alleged breakage or damage caused by our employees.


Additional work

We are usually happy to do favours for our clients over and above our quotations however this is expressly done at your own risk and we will not accept any responsibility for any work undertaken that is not written into the quote, including loss or damage to persons or property.


Pre-existing damage

We may take photographs of your property or complete a pre-existing damage form before the start of the project. In the unlikely event that we do damage your property and this is a result of our negligence, you will be covered by our insurance for the full amount. However, claims that we can dispute with photo evidence or written agreement will incur a £50 charge per complaint to cover administration costs.


Payment of quoted and fixed-price work

The client agrees to pay the invoice for work a maximum of 7 days after completion of the project. If the client is unhappy with the standard of workmanship, the correct complaints procedure as shown in these terms and conditions must be followed. All materials purchased for, or on behalf of the client, remain the property of MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance until payment of the final invoice by the client to MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance. In the event of a dispute, the client agrees to allow access to the property to a representative of MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance to retrieve all materials that remain the property of the company. We are happy to provide invoices for businesses and individuals, however, payment is due within the time scales as stated in the Terms and Conditions and the amount, unless amended by MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance, is fixed in the quotation. Therefore, the client is liable for payment, regardless of whether an invoice has been received.


If MR Landscape & Garden Maintenance deems it necessary, the client must make themselves available on the last day of the project for consultation and final sign-off for the project. If the client is unavailable, unless otherwise agreed in writing, the client accepts that the project has been completed to their satisfaction and payment in full is due. Termination of the contract by MR Landscape & Garden MaintenanceMR Landscape & Garden Maintenance will not tolerate aggressive or rude behaviour, racism, nationalism, sexism, homophobia or ageism directed towards any of its staff or tradespeople and preserve the right to terminate the project at any time in this event.
