Previous Terms and Conditions- In the event of any conflict between these Terms and Conditions and any prior versions, the provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall prevail unless expressly stated otherwise.
Law and Jurisdiction- These terms and conditions and any contract between you and Lawn Doc Ltd shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Law of England and Wales and Lawn Doc Ltd and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales.
Lawn Service – Lawn Doc Ltd carries out treatment to all turf areas with commercial equipment. We spray for weeds, pests & disease and we also spray fertiliser and iron to encourage growth and remove moss, scarify tine and carry out lawn treatments to encourage growth and a healthy and great looking Lawn. Before we leave, we blow debris off all hardscapes (driveway, pathway, patios), and place any waste material in your receptacle or bag it up for you, per the predetermined agreement we do not remove this from site as we don’t have a waste transfer licence and by leaving it on site helps keep our costs as low as they are and you can use most of this waste for ether composting or for topdressing.
Lawn condition – Once you have signed up to a package Lawn Doc ltd will start the treatments. During this time the lawn condition will generally look a lot worse before any improvements are noticed. The worse condition a lawn is the worse it will look in the short term by its very nature the killing off of weed, moss and undesirable grasses along with aeration and scarification will make the lawn look worse than before we started the treatments. This is perfectly normal and can take anything from a few days to a few months to get your lawn where you want it to be. If you allow Lawn Doc ltd to continue with the treatments the lawn will flourish, during these times lawn Doc ltd will advise and carryout the appropriate treatments and expects all agreed payments to be made on time.

Garden Access – Locked gates must remain unlocked for the full day of your scheduled service. If you prefer not to unlock your gate, please provide us with a key or password so
we may gain access or be at home on our day of visit. We will let you know in advance of the day we will be visiting this will be subject to suitable weather conditions. Should we need to
move this date due to adverse conditions we will do so at the next available appointment we have as near to the date booked we will let you know of this via email or phone call. We do not accept any claim for loss such as the client taking time off to be home in respect of this date being moved, we are dealing with a living lawn and the conditions must be optimal for the treatments to work and will only be carried out if in tolerance.
Pets children & Garden Debris – Please keep your pets inside while we are servicing your property. Please have all pet droppings, toys, bones, large rocks, etc., picked up before our arrival. The chemicals we use are safe for pets and children after around 20 minutes of application so your family can go back on the lawn once we have left your property.
Mowing- Most of our customers keep their lawn at the correct length for the time of year, we ask customers to keep their lawn regularly cut during the growing season, we advise weekly or if possible twice weekly cutting in the growing Months and Monthly at other times weather permitting. It is your responsibility in maintaining your lawn at a healthy length which will help keeping it healthy. It is best to mow the lawn a few days to a week prior to our visit, this way the treatment we carry out works with the maximum effect. It is then advisable not to cut the lawn for a week to 10 days following our visit. We cannot emphasise enough how important regular mowing is and is the biggest part of any treatment package working.
Service Days – Our team generally works Monday thru Friday. Numerous factors can affect our schedule; therefore, we cannot guarantee a specific time of day for each service. Please do not water your lawn the day before, or the day of our visit, as this may contribute to difficult treatment conditions and prevent us from carrying out certain tasks.
Rain/Weather Delays – We do carry out treatments in light rain or after the rain lightens up. Should you think that it is too wet to visit, please contact us to skip that day. If we have determined that the conditions are too wet to allow a proper treatment, then you can expect us to service your property later that day if the rain subsides or on the day or two following.
Schedule Changes & Skips – We try to accommodate any scheduling changes you desire. If for any reason, you need to re-schedule, cancel, or skip a service, please contact us at least 48 hours in advance. If you have requested a skip service, your service will continue the next scheduled visit as usual. Our crews will decide whether your lawn needs to be treated, but you will need to call or email us to cancel or skip a scheduled treatment.
