Warranty Information

Twin Creeks Landscape Group will replace any tree, shrub, or vine that dies within 12 months of the date of installation for all customers in good standing.

Replacement Warranties are limited to plants installed only and do not cover additional labor, special equipment, or materials used for removing and installation replacement material. Additional material may include planting soils, planting amendments, mulches or topdressing materials and staking/securing materials. A minimum rate of $96 will be billed for any plant warranty work requests. If a machine/loader is required to be used during replacement, a rate of $144 will be billed as the minimum. Customary Labor and Material Rates will be charged beyond the minimum rates expressed above when warranty replacements result in the need for labor beyond 1 hr and/or additional materials.
