After 30, client must pay 50% plant/sod replacement fee, plus labor fee.

Hardscapes (patios, retaining walls) and irrigation systems shall be guaranteed for 1 year from the date the work was completed.


We are not obligated to replace plants/trees, sod/turf, and irrigation systems and do not make any warranty with respect to plants/trees/sod/turf/irrigation systems damaged due to the following: neglect, over watering, under watering, abuse, vandalism, acts of God or nature, vehicular or pedestrian traffic, damage by pets or pedestrians, work done by others, extreme winter (snow/hail) or summer (heat) temperature, flood, tornado, fire, vandalism, theft, animals/pests, lack of or excess moisture, plant material on site transplanted by us, or other factors beyond our control.


Discover Your Garden will not: (i) be liable for losses or damages (including defects in labor, workmanship or materials) caused by persons or entities who are not controlled by or under contract with Discover Your Garden: (ii) be liable for losses or damages caused by, resulting from, contributed to or aggravated by earth movement, landslide, mudflow, earth sinking, earth rising, earth shifting or subsidence of land; (iii) be liable for damages, losses or extra expense due to underground foreign material such as construction debris, rock, heavily compacted sub-soil, tree stumps, roots, utilities and sprinkler systems and/or any other unforeseen obstructions (an additional charge for removal or special handling will be necessary); and (iv) pay to repair any underground obstructions unless Discover Your Garden had prior knowledge of these obstacles.


The warranty does not cover any damage caused by pets (urine, fecal matter, digging, biting, etc.) to the plants/trees, sod/turf, or irrigation system on which we performed work.

Regular maintenance of products installed is the responsibility of the homeowner.


The warranty expires on_(30 days on plants, 1 year on hardscapes from installation date)_ for the property located at ___(Client's Address)___. Questions and concerns must be addressed in writing to or mailed to 98 Wadsworth Blvd #127-210, Lakewood, Co 80226.

Please note, irrigation systems should be winterized and activated by a reputable sprinkler company.  New plants/sod require special attention after planting and through the first two years.  For trees: water 1 time per week for the first 6-8 weeks by either filling up a well and allowing water to saturate into the ground, or keeping a hose on a slow trickle for approximately 1 hour.  In the winter, water 1-2 times per month, depending on precipitation.  For shrubs, water for 2-3 minutes, 3-4 times per week, for the first 3-4 weeks until the area under the shrub is saturated.  After the first month through the end of the growing season, check the soil and water in the same manner as necessary. As the adage goes, "The first year they sleep, the second year they creep and the third year they leap!" and the plants may not thrive until the third year after installation.

Start new plants off right!

Deeper, infrequent watering helps plants grow healthy extensive roots, that stand up better to drought stress. Smart watering makes a big difference in the health of new plants!

Year 1:

Spring through fall, when weather is dry.

  • When planting: Water plants as soon as you get them in the ground. Allow the water to soak in, then water again until the soil is thoroughly moistened.

  • Week one: Water plants daily or every other day. Recently planted roots will absorb moisture from a small area until they begin to grow.

  • Week two onward: Unless the weather is extremely hot and dry, you may be able to decrease watering frequency to two or three times per week until the fall rains begin.

​Year 2:

Water deeply once or twice per week. How often and how long you water depend on your soil texture.

After Year 3:

Plants should be established, and thrive with less watering. Drought-tolerant plants may need no supplemental water, whereas shallow-rooted plants or plants with greater water needs may need water weekly. Many plants may need watering only once or twice a month in dry weather.

Other tips

  • Use water wisely! Water plants when they need it, and apply water according to your soil type and the weather. Do not apply water faster than the soil can absorb it.

  • Water in the morning, so less water is lost to evaporation.

  • Choose the right watering method. Soaker hoses and drip irrigation apply water directly to the soil and reduces evaporation. If you are planting a few plants in an existing planting bed, hand watering can get the new plants the water they need while not overwatering the rest of the plants.

  • Know your soil because it affects watering frequency and duration.

  • Check soil moisture before watering. Probe soil with a spade or trowel. Generally, you want the soil to be dry an inch or two below the surface before you water.

  • Recheck soil after watering. At least an hour after you water (or two hours with clay soil), probe soil to see how deeply the water penetrated. If it didn’t reach the root zone, you may need to increase your watering. If the area is soggy, try cutting back on watering.

  • Encourage deep roots by allowing the top inch or two of soil to dry before watering again.

  • Pick the right plant for the right place. Choose plants that are pest-resistant, require less water, and match the sun, shade, and soil in your yard.

  • Avoid planting in hot, dry weather which can easily stress plants. If you must plant in summer, plant in the cool of the morning when less water is lost to evaporation.

  • Mulch retains moisture. Mulching the surface of the soil reduces evaporation so you can water less often.

Special considerations

  • Drought-tolerant plants need regular water until they are established.

  • Planted containers tend to dry out quickly, particularly unglazed clay pots. Check them daily during the summer by sticking your finger into the soil. If it’s dry down to the first knuckle on your index finger, add water. Always apply enough water so that some drips out of the bottom drain hole.

  • Shallow-rooted plants such as rhododendrons, azaleas, heathers, and bedding plants may need more frequent watering than other plants.

  • Young trees need deep regular watering. During times of little or no rain, water deeply once a week until trees become established.
