The client shall be responsible for the day-to-day care of the lawn as recommended by the contractor and which is not part of the services outlined in this agreement. All pet waste will be removed by the Client prior to the arrival of the Contractor. If pet waste is still present, the contractor will pick up the pet waste for a fee of $35
Invoices should be paid upon receipt if the automatic payment is not chosen. Any accounts past due by 2 weeks or more will be subject to skipped services until the balance on the account is current.
The Contractor shall not be held liable for damage to items on or below the lawn surface which are not clearly visible or marked such as cables, wires, invisible pet fence, pipes, or sprinkler components.

The Contractor shall be liable for any damage to the lawn or plants due to the incorrect application or choice of pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Liability shall be limited to the replacement of the plant(s) by the contractor.
We do our best to adhere to the scheduled time, but we must work with the weather. Should our area receive rain/snow we will make our best judgment to continue your service or delay your service depending on the amount and severity of the rain/ snow. We try to ensure ample time for the ground to dry so our equipment does not damage your yard. If we are delayed by rain the following week we will return to your regular mowing day. Due to the layout of the Foothills and Rocky Mountain packages, payment must be received every week, regardless if service is skipped due to weather.
This Lawn Care Agreement and Lawn Care Package (attached) constitute the sole and entire agreement between the parties regarding the subject matter hereof and the parties waive the right to rely on any alleged expressed or implied provision not contained therein. Either party may terminate this Agreement in its entirety or amend the services detailed on the Lawn Care Schedule provided such termination or amendment is made in writing and submitted to the other party 14 days prior to taking effect.
No party may assign any of its rights or delegate or assign any of its obligations in terms of this Lawn Care Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party
This Contract and Agreement shall be construed, interpreted, and governed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, and should any provision of this Agreement be judged by an appropriate court as invalid, it shall not affect any of the remaining provisions whatsoever.
