All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail, fax or letter that confirms that we have accepted the order (the Confirmation). The contract between us (the Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Confirmation and Payment Ticket for payment.

The Contract will relate only to those Products or Services that we have confirmed in the Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product or Services which may have been part of your order until it has been confirmed in a separate Confirmation.

Pre-payment with order is required.

Trade Clients:

As with private clients but discounts are available. Min order quantity for discounts is 1000 grass plugs.

Delivery of Products:

Within a 30Km radius of Benissa and above the minimum order quantity shipping/transportation costs are free. Local deliveries, less than the minimum order value, please add 30 euros for delivery.

Delivery is door to door by courier. Dispatch is 7 - 21 working days after payment of order, for products (seed, fertiliser etc). Please allow 4 - 6 weeks (depending on season) for plants. 

As we use a third party courier, we cannot stipulate exactly what day the client will receive the products. Any specific delivery instructions should be made clear by the client at the time of order. We will try our best to comply with special delivery arrangements, but are not responsible for the clients personal day to day movements. 

If due to adverse weather conditions, fiestas or factors outside our control, we reserve the right to re-schedule delivery.

It is the clients responsibility to provide a full delivery address and Spanish (or destination country) contact telephone number, and be available to receive the delivery. We do not phone telephone numbers outside Spain. 

Orders cannot be shipped until we have a full delivery address and contact phone number.

We cannot be held responsible for any delays or hold ups caused by the postal or courier system, wrong or incomplete delivery address, fiestas, holidays or late payment of order.

We cannot cater for deliveries on certain days or at certain times of the day.

Delays imposed by the client, or any of the clients sub contractors are not the responsibility of Lawns in Spain, and delays in delivery may incur additional storage or transportation costs. Our responsibility for the products does not include to delivery to third party recipients. Delivery to third parties is entirely the clients responsibility.

It is vital that the client is at the delivery address to receive the order. If it is not possible for the courier to obtain receipt of the delivery by the client, the delivery may be attempted the following day, but equally  may be returned to the depot. We do not have the facilities and cannot accept returned packages. All returned undelivered packages for whatever reason will incur a further courier/delivery/loading/unloading charge and may even be disposed of at the expense of the client.

Once planted in their shipping trays, the grass plants only have a limited life without additional care. Storage of customers orders requires that we must water, fertilise and generally care for the plants over and above normal requirements. Therefore any delay in the ability of the client to receive delivery of the order (for whatever reason) will incur an additional storage/care charge, in the case of plugs, of 5 euros per tray (200 plants) per week and for ECO plants, 50 euros per week. If a new delivery date is not supplied by the client, and an order cannot or is not delivered within 3 months of the original scheduled dispatch date, then Lawns in Spain reserves the right to resell the order to another client.

Volumes and Measurements:

Products for sale weights or volumes quoted are generally measured prior to packaging materials. Quantities, timescales, volumes, weights etc (with respect to any usage or application of products) given on the website or in documentation are intended as guidelines only.

Due to the different types of grasses we grow, it is not possible to define the height, thickness, amount of growth or otherwise of grass plugs that are purchased.

In the event of being sold out of a particular product, we reserve the right to substitute a product of similar value and/or appearance.

Soil Tests:

All soil tests performed by us are supplied with a free written report and recommended remedial action. 

Where the client prefers to supply third party soil test results then the report and remedial action supplied is chargeable at 60 euros and Lawns in Spain will base its recommendations on those results supplied, but accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the accuracy of those results. 

Lawn Maintenance Contracts:

For the purpose of clarity, a Lawn is an existing lawned area, and contains more than 50% grass (i.e. must not contain more than 50% weeds or bare soil)

Seeds & Plants: Expected Proper Care by Customer

Plants and seeds are live organisms. You must use proper care for these items to insure that they continue to establish, grow and flourish. Failure on the part of the customer to observe correct planting procedures and maintenance methods for establishment (including watering as required, seed planting depth, site preparation, not planting at a reasonable time, or using planting methods not normally accepted by experts in the field, or not following through with needed care after planting will void any recourse on the part of the customer toward their purchase from Lawns in Spain. 

In all cases our liability is limited to the cost of the seeds and/or plants (either refund or replacement). We do not assume any liability toward additional costs you may incur such as planting cost, transportation costs, delay in establishment time, or any other loss due to the failure of the plants and/or seeds. 

Obtaining a satisfactory result from seeds and / or plants requires following correct growing procedures and proper selection of both plants and location for planting. Many factors can end up causing establishment problems, most of which have nothing to do with the actual seeds and / or plants. Consult with your local cooperative agent for assistance in determining what may have contributed to any less than satisfactory failure. 

For quality reasons, seeds may be coated.

Refunds

Subject to the limitation of liability herein set forth, the company warrants that the seeds or other merchandise sold are as described on the website, within recognized tolerances. 

In no event shall we be liable for the crop or lack thereof, or for any loss due to negligence, or the failure, impairment, or quality of the crop or variety variance therein, whether such loss results from the breach of the foregoing warranty, from breach of any other provision of the buyer's contract for the purchase of said seeds, plants or other merchandise, or from any other cause. 

ALL SALES ARE FINAL ON PLANTS, SEED OR PRODUCTS. LAWNS IN SPAIN MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED AS TO MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OF SEED, PLANTS OR OTHER MERCHANDISE SOLD. OUR RESPONSIBILITY ENDS ONCE THE ORDER HAS BEEN DELIVERED. 

The seeds , plants and other merchandise are sold at the price quoted only upon the condition that the above disclaimer of warranty and the limitation of damages are part of the basis of that bargain and sale agreement. Seeds or other merchandise not accepted under these terms should be returned within 20 days, in the original unopened container, and the Buyer will be sent a "replacement" item of the same merchandise or seed, providing that a replacement item is available. 

We do not give refunds on delayed or cancelled jobs. We do not refund for change of mind.

Weed Issues
Weeds can easily occur on newly planted sites and usually develop from seeds lying within your existing soil that can have been waiting for decades to have a chance to germinate (Known as your soils weed / seed bank) - Tilling, moving or raking your soil can result in the movement of weed seeds to the top of your soil area where germination can occur. Rarely are weeds a result of weed seeds in newly purchased seeds as most seeds sold now days have very high purity standards. Weed control is an active part of establishing plants and depending on site issues can require chemical control products to help with the control of excessive weed issues. Your local cooperative agent can help advise on these issues.

ECO Living Roofs

Delivery for ECO Living roofs is normally 8 weeks to allow us to check the progress of the plants in their trays prior to delivery.  If you do not have an experienced gardener, or feel that you need help in establishing your Green ECO Living Roof and require the assistance of one of our succulent plant experts then we will be pleased to provide a weekly service to visit and advise you for a call out fee.  It is important that the "Proper Care by Customer" guidelines are followed. 

Plugs

For weight reasons, plugs may be shipped dry. We may from time to time, change the size of the trays.
