Stones Patios and Pathways
All patios are covered against any major shifting or settling for 2 years. It is the intention during construction to expect up to 1” of settlement over the patio life.
Patios can sink if water is continuously dripping on it in the same place, Project Landscape is not responsible for this kind of damage due to neglect, but we can fix it at a fair price.
If polymer sand is used in the patios, Project Landscape is not responsible for any “staining” that may be a result of the application, some product is slightly defective and can cause a “greying” of the stones.
Every year it is a good idea to sweep sand into patios where the sand has settled. Ask us to leave some extra polymer sand which is easily applied or call us to apply it for you, free of charge for the first 2 years.
Retaining Walls and Stairs
Retaining walls are covered against any major heaving or sinking for 2 years.
Project Landscape builds drainage into all major walls to prevent heaving, this is extremely robust, however you cannot have excessive amounts of water behind the wall, if a drain spout or leaking hose is behind the wall it must be relocated or warranty is void.
Woodwork – Decks, Fences, Privacy screens, Arbors and Pergolas
All woodwork is covered from major structural defects for 2 years.

Mulch biodegrades every year. You must add new mulch every second year due to this process.

Low Maintenance Areas – Weeds
Weed barrier is not a permanent solution for weeds. It only reduces the presence of weeds. You must ensure no one is ripping or digging in the barrier.
For the weed barrier (4.5 oz. fabric) to be effective, any organic matter on top of the barrier must be removed, as weeds will grow in organic matter on top of an effective barrier if not properly maintained.
A regime of weed control products or manual weeding is the only way to prevent weeds. Please read the weed control products instructions before application.
When a maintenance free area is being planned in a previously weed infested area, or bordering a weedy area the homeowner should do their best to eliminate the worst of the weeds prior to construction to ensure the best chance of weed elimination.
Shrubs, Perennials, and Trees
There is a 1 yr. limited warranty on the trees and shrubs installed by Project Landscape, and maintained per the standards below.
Newly installed landscape plants will suffer transplant shock, particularly during the hot summer months. It is imperative that plants receive proper care to minimize stress.
