Season duration, frequency, and suspension.
To cancel or suspend service we must receive email notice 1 day prior to your next scheduled visit. Your maintenance contracts can be canceled or suspended at any time. Email notice should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are no penalties for canceling or suspending service. Clients that paid ahead will have the remaining balance in their account converted into credit towards any future services. Routine Maintenance service runs approximately from April 1st - November 25th which is subject to change based on market demands, our ability to meet those demands and weather restrictions.
Unless notified directly by email, service will automatically be renewed the next season on April 1st for those with cards stored on file. Our Dog Waste Removal and Food Waste Collection service runs year round, but may be limited by weather or other mitigating factors.
What to expect if the schedule is changed.
During the routine maintenance season, we will always do our best to stick to the schedule we have generated. Our priorities are to keep our promises to our clients and to balance those demands with ensuring the health of the lawn and the safety of our workers. Due to weather conditions and other factors out of our control we may be forced to change when we complete the cycle of routine maintenance to make sure we adhere to our priorities. We reserve the right to visit two days ahead of or after what is scheduled in anticipation of weather complications. If we will be coming later or earlier than two days in advance you will be notified prior to the visit.
We may have to reschedule a visit due to equipment/vehicle repair. Schedule updates are posted on Townhome Landscape's blog.
If we are forced to remove a whole week or more from the schedule because of any event out of our control, Townhome Landscapes will move back the service dates of all clients by the number of days missed.
Requests for additional work to be completed that is not covered by signed contracts will be denied by all employees of Townhome Landscapes without the standing contract first being amended. An amendment to the contract will not necessarily change the price of the contract.
If a crew leader performs any task outside those listed in the contract, Townhome Landscapes will not be held responsible for any damages, injuries or complication caused as a result of those actions.
Routine Maintenance is divided into three categories, lawn, routine and seasonal maintenance.
(Mowing, Edging, Trimming, Clearing Pathways, Weeding, and Shrub Trimming)
Mowing - We recommend mowing your lawn to our standard 3” mowing height on a weekly basis with un-bagged grass clippings, which results in a lawn that is healthy, fertilized and can withstand stressors such as heat and lack of rain. Mowing height can be adjusted, and grass clippings can be bagged upon request. Bagging of grass clippings is separate from mowing and will be included as debris removal for an additional cost. We will use compostable paper bags as designated by the city and haul them away for an additional charge. With the clients consent, we will leave the bags of grass clippings in the designated area to be hauled away, usually in a location where it is stored for pick up by bulk trash collection that visits the property.
Routine String Trimming
Commonly referred to as “weed-whacking,” string trimming is performed in those areas that are too small, steep, or uneven to be managed with a lawn mower. Included in string trimming is the maintenance of retaining walls and pathways.
Edging provides a clean, finished demarcation between the grass in your yard and adjacent elements such as: flower beds, walkways, and patios. It is achieved with a variety of tools and is a technique which creates a distinct separation between the lawn and hardscapes. Edging is a treatment that will add significant curb appeal to your residence.
Routine Power Blowing
A power blower is used to keep pathways and driveways clear of unwanted debris such as grass clippings, leaves, dust, and dirt. If our power blower is out of service, we will sweep the debris into piles to be collected.
Landscape Bed Maintenance
Manual removal of undesirable plants without machinery or by applying chemicals will result in a healthier landscape bed so that the full beauty of your plants can shine. Weeds crowd out your desired plants and compete for nutrients from the soil. The level of effort required for hand weeding will depend on the complexity of plantings in the landscape beds. The charge for hand weeding will be relative to how long it takes to properly weed the bed.
We will prune all shrubs on the property 3 times over the course of the year, unless otherwise specified.
Additional Long Grass Fee
Customers are subject to an additional lawn mowing fee when grass length exceeds 6 inches. Our crew will document this occurrence prior to mowing by taking photos from multiple locations and attaching them to the invoice. Tall grass puts a strain on our crew and equipment and adds time to the maintenance. Depending on the severity of the long grass, the additional charge may equal up to 100% of the quoted price for mowing.
We reserve the right to make a judgement on whether a separate one-time service “Clearing of Overgrowth” is required prior to a routine maintenance visit.
Prices are for standard size yards; depending on various landscape elements and the overall size of the service area, it may be necessary to adjust the price per visit. This determination will be made based on the average time spent working per visit. We will reach out via phone and email to notify the customer of price increase or decrease. If we notify the customer of a price increase, service will be suspended until the customer consents to the price change. For a price decrease we will adjust required payments and then continue with routine maintenance.
Payment & Payment Methods
Our Head of Client Services will call to set up your choice of payment method including credit card, check, or cash.
If paying with credit card, the Head of Client Services will collect your credit card information and you will be charged upon completion of work. We will charge a 2.99% transaction fee.
If you have chosen to pay by check, send payment via mail upon receiving your emailed invoice to the address provided to you or arrange the pick-up of the check with email@example.com.
If you have chosen to pay by cash, send payment via mail upon receiving your emailed invoice to the address provided to you or arrange the pick-up of the check with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cash/Check - Clients that pay via cash/check will have their credit card information put on retainer and will be billed after each visit.
If you choose to pay through this method, we will require you to keep information required by debt collectors on file. Townhome Landscapes reserves the right to outsource collection to a debt collector in cases of extreme delinquency.
Credit Card - Clients that pay via credit card will be charged after each visit
***Early Bird Specials - Order Routine Maintenance Prior to April 1, 2021***
Pay in advance for the season and receive a 10% discount. Email to receive invoice with discount reflected.
The first visit is $25 dollars for properties with service areas, under 2000 sq ft. The first visit does not include weeding or shrub trimming. The first visit is a one time service contract. After the first visit we will send a proposal for routine maintenance of the areas required. We will also send a separate proposal(s) for any additional routine maintenance service we recommend.
Changing Frequency of Service, Service Cancelations and Refunds
At any point in the season our clients are able to change the frequency of the service between weekly and bi-weekly. Townhome Landscapes operates within a specific area on specific days of the week. I.e. Tuesday - Georgetown, Wednesday- NOMA , ETC.
Customers requesting a routine maintenance service visit on a day of the week that we do not typically operate in will be quoted for a one-time job, separate from the dates given on the initial quote. Unless given notice to cancel/suspend service, we will immediately resume service as scheduled in the initial quote. Townhome Landscapes will assist in determining the best schedule for your specific landscape.
At the end of each season, if a client is not interested in having us service them the following season, they must notify Townhome Landscapes before the start of the next season. Failure to notify will result in their account being renewed and added to the routine maintenance schedule. Clients will be required to pay for any services they receive.
Reminders and Follow-Up Emails
For one-time jobs we email our clients a reminder prior to each scheduled visit. Following the visit, we send a follow-up email. If you would like to limit or opt out of receiving reminder and follow-up emails, send your request to email@example.com.
A follow up email will be sent after the completion of each round of routine maintenance. You are required to respond to this email before the next service date. If you are satisfied with the level of service you received, respond yes. If there is an issue, please email us a detailed description of the problem and provide pictures if possible.
