2.14 Under the Regulations, the Customer may cancel a Contract for the purchase of Goods (without giving any reason for cancellation) at any time within the period:
(a) beginning upon the submission of the Customer’s order; and

2.15 The cancellation right described in Condition 2.14 does not apply to any Goods which are made to the Customer’s specification, or to any perishable goods, such as plants.
2.16 In order to cancel a Contract on the basis described in Condition 2.14, the Customer must inform the Company of the Customer’s decision to cancel.

To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for the Customer to send the Customer’s communication concerning the exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
2.17 The Customer must arrange for the Goods to be returned to the Company. The Customer must comply with the Customer’s obligations referred to in this Condition 2.17 without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which the Customer inform the Company of the Customer’s decision to cancel the Contract. The Customer must pay the direct cost of returning the Goods.

The Customer’s comments will be relied upon by the Company in producing the Customer’s final design. The Customer must ensure that their comments comprehensively address all aspects of the design and that any errors or omissions in the scale plan are corrected by the Customer, as the Company shall not be liable for any design aspects not so addressed, or for any errors or omissions not so corrected and the Company reserves the right to impose additional charges for any additional work required to rectify the Customer’s final design.

(b) the application of water to plants or seeds after planting or sowing.
3.7 Planting schemes are subject to the vagaries of plant health at point of purchase and time of planting.

When planting large trees or shrubs near to buildings the Customer is solely responsible for checking that those plants do not threaten the foundations of nearby buildings.
3.8 The Contractor shall be responsible for undertaking the Works and the Company shall have no liability therefor. The recommendation of any Contractor by the Company to the Customer does not imply any approval of the Contractor by the Company. The Customer understands that the Contractor is not the Company’s subcontractor and that the Customer will be contracting with the Contractor directly in engaging the Contractor to undertake the Works. In this respect, the Customer acknowledges:
(a) that all quotations and invoices will emanate from the Contractor;
(b) that the Customer will be subject to the Contractor’s own terms and conditions (if any); and
(c) notwithstanding that all drawings are to scale, because the reproduction process can sometimes cause slight distortions, the Contractor must be required to visit the Site in order to confirm the precise nature and extent of the Works before proceeding therewith.
3.9 Where the Company agrees to undertake the Project Monitoring Service, the Customer acknowledges that the Company will not be responsible for managing the Works (whereby the Contractor would be sub-contracted to undertake the Works by the Company), but shall instead be simply responsible for monitoring the progress of the Works.
3.10 The Customer shall:
(a) provide the Company with all information, co-operation and support that may be required to enable the Company to carry out its obligations to the Customer;
(b) allow full, complete, uninterrupted and unimpeded access to the Site in order to enable the Company to undertake the Project Monitoring Service;

(d) where the Customer is a business customer rather than a consumer, effect and maintain appropriate insurance at the Site on an all risks basis and in an adequate amount.
3.11 Any additional costs caused by any delay in the performance of the Project Monitoring Service, or any suspension of performance, at the Site (for reasons beyond the control of the Company) shall be treated as a variation to the Customer’s original order and the Customer shall be liable for any such additional costs.
3.12 The Customer shall not, without the prior written consent of the Company, at any time from the date of the Contract to the expiry of 12 months after the last date of supply of the Services or termination of the Contract, as applicable, solicit or entice away from the Company or employ (or attempt to employ) or otherwise engage or attempt to engage the services of any person who is, or has been, engaged as an employee, consultant or subcontractor of the Company in the provision of the Services.
3.13 Any consent given by the Company in accordance with Condition 3.12 shall be subject to the Customer paying to the Company a sum equivalent to 15 % of the then current annual remuneration of the Company’s employee, consultant or subcontractor.
4.1 Prices for the Supplies, howsoever given, are based on conditions ruling on the date of their giving and are subject to change. The effective price for the Supplies shall be the price confirmed by the Company in its written notification of acceptance of the Customer’s order pursuant to Condition 2.3.
4.2 The Company reserves the right, by giving notice to the Customer at any time before delivery or provision of the Supplies, to increase the price of the Supplies to reflect any increase in the cost to the Company which is due to any factor beyond the control of the Company (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, any increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture), any change in delivery or completion dates, quantities or specifications for the Supplies, or any delay caused by any instructions of the Customer or failure of the Customer to give the Company adequate, accurate or complete information or instructions.
4.3 Unless otherwise stated the price quoted will be exclusive of Value Added Tax which will be charged at the rate which is applicable at the date of dispatch of the Goods or commencement of performance of the Services.
4.4 Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the Customer and the Company, all prices are given by the Company on an ex works basis and the Customer shall be liable to pay the Company’s charges for transport, packaging and insurance.
4.5 The Contract price is based on normal weekday rates; evening, weekend and bank holiday work will incur extra costs.
4.6 The Contract price does not allow for any retentions being held against the Company.
4.7 The Contract price is based on the assumption that that the Site is free from any conditions, features, hazards or obstructions (including underground hazards or obstructions) which are not discoverable upon visual inspection of the Site. The Company may make an additional charge for any additional work executed by the Company as a result of the disclosure or discovery of any such conditions, features, hazards or obstructions.
