Commercial woody plant warranty

We guarantee our woody plants for 90 days from the date of purchase.

If a plant is found to be defective or in distress you must notify a sales representative from Cavicchio Greenhouses, Inc. as soon as possible, within 90 days of purchase. Do not remove any defective plant until Cavicchio Greenhouses, Inc. has had an opportunity to view the plant in place in order to evaluate the planting, maintenance and site conditions impacting the affected plant.

Conditions

Plants must be planted and cared for under standard horticultural practices such as proper planting depth and pit size, consistent deep watering, fertile soil, sufficient mulch, and proper planting location, care and maintenance required for the cultural needs of the specific plant(s) in question.

Certain plants such as Quercus (all varieties), Betula jacquemonti, Ilex, Cupressocyparis leylandii, Pinus nigra, Cercis, and Pinus sylvestris are not covered by this policy.

This warranty is valid on plants purchased from April 1 to October 1 only.

Customers who pick up plant material must cover and properly care for plant material when leaving the yard. No claim will be considered if nursery stock leaves the yard without proper protection.

In all cases, the original price will be the maximum claim to which the purchaser is entitled. Any approved claim will be settled in the form of a merchandise credit or replacement stock at the discretion of the area manager.

Natural stone product warranty disclaimer

Our Stone Products are offered wholesale to professionals in the landscape industry.  These products are provided "AS IS" without any guaranty or warranty, express or implied. 

We continuously strive to provide our customers with a large and varied selection of the highest quality stone available in the market. However, Cavicchio Greenhouses, Inc. makes no express or implied warranty for natural stone materials regarding merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose and makes no other warranties, expressed or implied to the purchaser and/or sub-purchaser or end user of the natural stone products.  Cavicchio Greenhouses, Inc. is not responsible for the manner in which the material is installed or applied.

The following guidelines are intended solely to clarify an understanding of certain properties, characteristics, or conditions associated with Cavicchio Greenhouses, Inc. products. They do not represent all of the properties, characteristics, or conditions which may exist or which may be covered under this warranty disclaimer.

Color and Veining: Stone is composed of natural materials and is subject to variations in background color, veining distribution and veining pattern. The color, shade, veining, color concentrations (blotches), and any other variances in the appearance of natural stone will exist and will vary between a sample you may have used in the selection process and the actual stone(s) used on your project, between two stones, and even  within  the  same  stone. Such naturally occurring variations are to be expected in stone and are not considered defects.

Fissures: Stone may have a seam that is not visible at the time of sale or installation causing the stone to open or crack.

Finish: Your stone product may come with a finish, such as Sawn, Thermal Flamed, Honed, Polished, Natural Cleft, Bush Hammered or Sandblasted. Edges may also be Rock Faced, Split or Sawn. Irregularities in the finish levels of natural materials like stone are common, reflecting the unique natural patterns and finish that give each stone product its distinctive appearance.  Finish will vary from piece to piece and on the same piece.

Surface Irregularities and Thickness: Natural stone is composed of minerals and is earth-formed over hundreds of millions of years. Fissures, pitting, mineral pooling, and other naturally occurring features in stone should not be considered as defects, and are not covered under this warranty. The thickness of stone slabs vary, therefore thickness designations (i.e. 4 inches) are nominal rather than exact. Dimensions of cut-to-size stone products may vary up to 1/8 inch from the nominal dimension.

Weathering: Stone may change color as it ages; this can happen right away or take years to occur. Stone could change color due to exposure to the elements. Stone may have minerals in it that cause rust or staining to appear. Stone can be affected by ice melt, minerals or chemicals in rain, tap water, pool water or groundwater. Permanent stains can occur. Using acid or harsh chemicals will also affect the color or integrity of natural stone. Use of Polymeric Sand in joints between stones can cause water retention leading to spalling.

Terms

We accept Cash, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. With proper identification, company/personal checks from the business owner. For customers who have been granted a line of credit a monthly finance charge of 1.5% will be added 30 days after an invoice’s due date. Cavicchio Greenhouses, Inc. reserves the right to change a customer’s credit limit or convert the customer to COD at any time. Returned checks will be assessed a $25 fee. We do not accept Credit Card payments on invoices charged to a Cavicchio credit line.

We do not accept third party checks.

Sales tax

The appropriate state sales tax will be applied to all sales unless we have a current, completed Exemption Certificate on file.

Customer card and card use

This card was assigned to you personally and your account and as such you assume all responsibility for it and any purchases made with it. Friends, neighbors and others are not allowed to use your card to shop here.

Should you lose your card, you can get a replacement at any of our sales counters. Please come in and get a new card before shopping so that we can scan your purchases efficiently when you are ready to check out.

Return policy

All returns must be made within 48 hours, be accompanied by a sales receipt and are subject to quality inspection. A 20% restocking fee will be applied. No returned plant will be accepted after 48 hours of the sale.

Kids and animals

We like them both. However, a busy wholesale yard is not the place for them. If you are unable to avoid bringing your children, they must be handheld and with you at all times. Pets are not allowed.

Delivery

Issues with the product on a delivery must be noted on the paperwork at the time of delivery.
Delivery of all products is available throughout New England. Depending upon the customer location, materials ordered, and destination there are varying minimums. Please contact one of our sales representatives for information and rates.
