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.
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. ANY RESPONSIBILITY ENDS ONCE THE ORDER HAS BEEN DELIVERED.

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 or any other reason. Grass plug orders are prepared to order, so once a customers plug order has been paid for, the process is started and cannot be reversed. Under certain circumstances, should a refund be agreed, it is understood that the refundee is the customer that placed the order. Should this not be the case then written authorisation is required from the customer to pay the refund to a third party.

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.
