TERMS OF SERVICE (rev. 2/21)


    Items are by service but may apply to all/other/unlisted services.


    LAWN CARE SERVICES


    Services in this category include, but are not limited to: recurring lawn care, flower bed clean up, bush and shrub trimming, and mulch installation.


    Payment


    When you have accepted an estimate, you will be sent a secured link to enter your credit card information into our Client Hub. This must be completed before your first service can be scheduled. Your chosen credit or debit card information will be encrypted and stored in a safe and secure electronic payment system, to be used only by our company for the purpose of collecting payment for services performed by our company. Payment for lawn care services will be charged to your card on file 24 hours after service is completed. An electronic receipt will be sent to you. If a payment is unable to be processed, service will be put on hold until payment is made, and a $25 fee will be charged to your account. Repeated unsuccessful payments may result in termination of service.


    Please note that the first lawn care service or service performed after a requested break in service may result in a charge up to double the regular service amount. This one-time increase in charge would be due to overgrowth and excessive time spent.


    Scheduling


    In a business whose productivity relies upon the weather, scheduling can be difficult at times. Inclement weather may affect scheduling. We try our best to keep scheduling conflicts to a minimum; however, circumstances that are beyond our control may affect your project start and completion dates. Lawn care services are placed on a weekly/biweekly schedule and adjusted as needed throughout the season by our professionals. Please note that if our lawn care crews come to your property to perform scheduled lawn care service and your lawn is freshly mowed by another person or provider without notice to our company, a charge of 50% of your regular service cost will be assessed to your account.


    Picking Up Items


    Your service will be predictable and reliable. Since you’ll know when we’re coming, we ask that you please pick up all items in your yard and move all vehicles or blockages that may hinder our ability to access gates, etc. This includes dog feces and dog toys, children’s toys, hoses, gardening equipment, etc. Extra charges may apply if our mowing crew is responsible for picking up items in your yard (this excludes sticks and yard debris when we are providing a clean up service) or is delayed at your property due to blockages. This ensures that our crew can stay efficient and do the best job for you, while avoiding damage to your personal items and our equipment. Repeated occurrences, damage to our equipment or personal injury to our employees may result in termination of service.


    Courtesy and Safety


    While San Antonio Lawn Mowing is on location at your property, you are responsible for keeping all children and pets, as well as other individuals, away from the work area. This is for your safety, as well as our own.


    Extra Clean Up Due to Storm or Heavy Winds
    If a storm or heavy wind leaves behind excessive sticks, tree limbs, and/or yard debris, we will clean up what is necessary and charge at a rate of $50 per man hour plus a $20 disposal fee. In most instances, we will communicate with you before any work is done; the only exception is if the debris is so severe that it hinders our ability to provide your regularly scheduled lawn service. If your lawn has acquired heavy debris between mows, please contact us to discuss your options.


    Extra Clean Up Due to Tree Discharge
    If a tree on your property (or a neighbor’s property) causes excessive discharge to the point that it hinders our ability to provide your regularly scheduled lawn service, we will charge at a rate of $60 per man hour plus a $20 disposal fee to clean up the area. If your lawn has acquired heavy debris between mows, please contact us to discuss your options.


    Requesting to Skip a Mow


    Our crew leaders are trained professionals. When they arrive on the job site, they analyze the status of your lawn. If it appears that it does not need mowed and would benefit from skipping a week of service, the crew leader will make a note of the skipped service. This may happen during drier periods or toward the beginning/end of the season. Otherwise, your lawn will be mowed weekly/biweekly. You are allowed two requested skips per year at no charge, if requested at least 24 hours before your service is scheduled to be performed. If you request to skip service with less than 24 hours notice, or request more than two skips per season, your account will be charged $25 per event.


    Requesting to Mow Shorter


    Please be advised that we mow at a 3 1/2 inch blade length during the spring/fall and 4 inches during the summer. This guarantees optimal health, quality, and aesthetic of your lawn. Mowing shorter than 3 1/2 – 4 inches damages grass roots, promotes weed growth, and destroys the overall look of your lawn. We take pride in the lawns we mow. We want you to take pride in the health and beauty of your lawn as well.


    Damages


    We cannot be held responsible for damage to irrigation systems, sprinkler heads, downspout covers, etc. We can replace certain items for a small fee. We cannot be held responsible for damage to certain unavoidable areas that could be affected by a string trimmer, including, but not limited to: fencing, mailbox posts, fences, swing sets and play areas, unprotected siding that may be low to the ground, unmarked plants placed outside of regular beds, and other unprotected or unmarked areas. If an item should be directly damaged by our equipment, we will communicate the issue with you as soon as possible; if you notice that an item has been damaged, please notify us within 24 hours per our satisfaction guarantee below. Please note that San Antonio Lawn Mowing is fully licensed and insured, carries one million dollar liability insurance, and workers’ compensation coverage on all San Antonio Lawn Mowing employees.


    Satisfaction Guarantee


    Your 100% satisfaction is guaranteed. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the quality of service you have received, please contact us within 24 hours. This contact may be in the form of a phone call or voicemail, e-mail, or service request through our Client Hub. Please leave your contact information and describe the issue in detail. If you contact us after regular business hours (Monday through Friday 8:00am to 4:00pm), we will contact you as soon as possible when we re-open. If an issue should arise after the 24 hour window, it may be due to an issue of nature or other circumstance that could prevent us from correcting the problem at no charge.


    Cancelation


    If you choose to cancel your weekly lawn care service, a 24 hour notice (or if your service day is Monday, please notify us before 4:00pm on Friday) is required. If we do not receive notice of your cancelation, a charge of 50% of your regular service cost will be assessed to your account.


    Continuation Of Service and Auto-Renew
    Once service begins, you’ll be placed on our annual schedule for service to resume each spring. Written notice of cancelation is necessary from either party to end service.
