After you have selected your level of landscape design……

• Your landscape designer will meet at your residence to; discuss your specific needs and desires, take
measurements and take notes needed to complete your landscape design. During this meeting we will talk
with you about timelines for design completion and installation. Based upon the season, designs may take up
to 2-3 weeks to complete and installation usually can commence within approximately 2 weeks after the
decision to install has been made. This timeline is completely dependent on the time of season; however
your designer will keep you informed of your status.

• Your designer will call you upon completion of your design to set an appointment for the presentation. We
encourage you to meet at TimberPine Nursery, which would give you an opportunity to see our plant and
hardscape materials. If that is not possible, the designer can meet at your residence.

• The fee for your landscape design is due at the completion of its presentation

• After reviewing your design, revisions can be made. Your designer will follow-up with you approximately 1
week after the initial presentation to discuss any changes or ideas you may have. We can tailor or phase the
design to meet nearly any budget or design request.

• When you’re ready for TimberPine to install your landscape, we will ask for the following before you are
scheduled for the work to begin:
o Minimum 50% down payment (thru credit card, cash or check)
o Signed copy of the estimate reflecting the materials to be installed (as provided by your designer)
This is our contracting agreement

• Our scheduling respects a first come, first serve policy. At this time we can offer an estimated time when your
installation would initiate. Please keep in mind there are several factors that can influence our schedule-ie.
weather, previously scheduled installations, availability of plant and hardscape materials, etc. Your designer or
our schedule coordinator will communicate with you the status as we lead up to installation.

• TimberPine will contact Iowa One Call to mark your property at least 48 hours prior to installation for
utilities such as gas, cable, tv, water, and phone. Any other private utilities such as irrigation, dog fence, or
secondary electricity will not be marked by Iowa One Call and are not TimberPine’s responsibility. If you
know where any private utilities are within your property, please notify your designer. We will make every
effort to avoid these areas, but if damages occur during installation, repairs will be at your expense.

• During your installation, skilled foremen and crew members will install your project. The designer will be
onsite when needed during the installation and will be in constant communication with the foreman. If you
have any questions or concerns during construction, please contact your designer.

• Upon completion of your new landscape, the designer will schedule a walk through with you to ensure your
satisfaction. At this time you will receive proper care instructions for your new landscape and have the chance
to clear up any questions you may have. We will ask that you acknowledge your approval by signing our
confirmation sheet. With your signature you are verifying your understanding of the landscape
maintenance, our warranty policy and other aspects of the installation. This also ensures TimberPine has
done our job properly.

• The final invoice will be provided to you either during your walk through or by mail immediately following
the project completion. We appreciate payment once you’ve received this invoice. Accounts more than 30
days past due will have a 1.5% finance charge per month applied.

• Please contact your designer at the first sign of any stress or any concerns regarding your landscape. In some
instances we can salvage plant materials, given proper notice. Approximately one year after your installation,
your designer will be in contact with you to cover any warranty issues that may have occurred, and to ensure
you’re enjoying your landscape!
