Do we get part or all of the design cost back if we decide to use your company to install it?

When can you start our project?
We book projects every day, They are usually booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. We may suggest a certain time period for you depending on the type of project or if we work together with other trades. We are usually booked a few months in advance. Once you accept the proposal we will give you an approximate starting date for your project.
How long is your guarantee on plants?
We guarantee the plants that we install for 1 year. If they do not survive before or after the first winter we will replace them free of charge. However, we can not guarantee plants if they are damaged during the winter by animals or rodents. We can also not guarantee plants that were transplanted during the installation of the project.
