3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the service. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the service or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

  1. Our services

4.1 Our services will be as detailed on our website and materials. Typically our services involve processes undertaken on your lawn and hard surfaces and you are paying for these processes to be done. However, you acknowledge and agree that because the service involves natural processes the duration of and the result of the service will be subject to variation (including due to ground conditions and weather).

Such changes will not normally impact the outcome of the service, but if we anticipate that it will, we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any services paid for but not received.

  1. Providing the services

Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.

6.3 If you do not allow us access to provide services. If you do not allow us or our suppliers access to your property to perform the services as arranged (and you do not have a good reason for this) we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result.

  1. Price and payment

11.1 Where to find the price for the service. The price for the service (which will include VAT if it applies) will be the price indicated on your order form.  We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the service advised to you is correct. However please see clause 11.3 for what  happens if we discover an error in the price of your order. 11.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the service, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the service in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

11.3 What happens if we got the price wrong? It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order but where we believe we have made a mistake and the service’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the error is that the service’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you to inform you of our error and for your instructions on whether to proceed with the order at the new price.

11.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment by Direct Debit when this option is given to you and with most credit and debit cards, bank transfers or cheques. You must pay each invoice within 14 calendar days after the date of the invoice.

11.5 Payment for services other than Annual Lawn Treatment Programmes.  We may ask for an advance payment of 25% or £100 whichever is the lower of the price of any lawn make-overs and mechanical services such as aeration and scarification, one month before we start providing them. This payment will be invoiced approximately 1 month before the date of expected delivery of service.  This payment is then deducted from the final invoice on completion of the service. If you cancel a mechanical service after the advance payment is invoiced it is not refundable except at the discretion of Greenheart Lawn Care.  If we fail to provide the service for any reason and any payment has been received we will provide you with a full refund within 28 days.

11.6 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by 28 days after the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 6% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time.

14.5 Even if we delay enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
