Areas to be cleared include: . Please Note: Areas not included in this description can be added at a reasonable additional cost. Please contact the office for pricing.
Snow clearing will commence following the end of light and moderate snowfalls. In the event of a major snow storm, trucks will be dispatched during the storm and make repeat visits as needed to clear the snow as road and weather conditions permit Our staff and equipment are affected by weather conditions and traffic congestion, plow shifts during daytime are generally far slower than at night. The Gardener* does not offer a time guarantee, your property will be cleared as quickly as we are able to. Please note: if you are purchasing your Snow Plowing services during a plow event, your first service may be delayed as we add the property details to the applicable route. You cannot expect that services will be immediate once purchased, please be patient and we will service your property as quickly as we can.
If necessary, trucks will return to clear the Municipal Snow Plow ridge at the base of the driveway.In municipalities that do not leave snow plow ridges we are not responsible to clear them. Snow plow ridges will only be cleared during snowfalls and a maximum of one time after the snowfall ceases. Snow plow ridges will not be cleared on days when it does not snow.
The Gardener* is not responsible for ice removal and/or applying salt or other de-icing products. We strongly recommend that you monitor your property, keep salt or other de-icing products available and apply as needed to melt ice build-up or other slippery conditions caused by freezing rain, melting, freeze/thaw, poor drainage or other conditions. Any slip & fall accidents on your property are your responsibility, The Gardener* does not accept any liability.
The Gardener* is not responsible for clearing snowdrifts or drifting snow caused by high winds on days when there has been no snow accumulation. If you require snow fence to be installed, please call our office to inquire if this service is available and for pricing.
Any special or repeat visits caused by conditions out of the control of The Gardener* may be billed additionally to this contract but only after the client agrees to a fair and reasonable charge. Examples include clearing snow drifts caused by high winds, returning to a site where access was not possible due to parked cars,clearing snow accumulation under the threshold of this contract, construction etc.
This service agreement is a flat rate snow plowing contract, it is independent of weather conditions and/or snowfall accumulations. Staff, equipment and other infrastructure must be maintained regardless of snow accumulations to ensure service can be provided when necessary.Therefore we cannot and will not offer refunds or credits if you do not feel you have received enough service visits to warrant the cost. Our staff and equipment are standing by ready for snow storms around the clock, please consider the cost you are charged similar to an insurance policy, you are paying for the peace of mind knowing you are covered and not a specific number of visits as we cannot predict the weather.
Due to the nature of this type of work, please understand that you may incur some inconvenience during periods of snow. The Gardener* cannot be liable if you are delayed in accessing or exiting your property. We do our best to time the services provided overnight however that is only possible if it snows at night. Weather forecasting has improved dramatically but it is still not an exact science, some snowfalls are somewhat of a surprise or don’t cease when they are forecasted to. We will do everything possible to ensure your services are provided in a consistent and professional manner and we request that you communicate with our staff in a courteous and respectful manner.
While we make ever effort to provide our snow clearing services without causing property damage, we do carry proper Commercial Liability insurance to cover damage that is legitimately our fault. The Gardener* cannot however be held liable for: damages caused to surfaces that are uneven or non level, pre-existing conditions or damage, unmarked objects, objects hidden or covered by snow, frost heaves, any cracking in surfaces caused by poor installation or settling/compaction of the base layer. Please install adequate stakes to mark any curbs or other objects that could be hidden by snow accumulation prior to the first snowfall and notify The Gardener* in advance so we can properly note this on our route list. If you require stakes to be installed for you at a reasonable rate, please call The Gardener prior to frost entering the ground.
In the event that you wish to cancel your contract for any reason during the coverage period please note the following cancellation terms: cancellation must be made during business hours via live conversation or email and requires a minimum of 48 hours notice, 25% of the total contract amount is retained by The Gardener*, the refund of the remaining 75% will be calculated using a declining per diem formula whereby the remaining amount is divided by the total number of days covered by the contract. The refund will only cover the portion not to be covered.
Please note that while we make every effort possible not to displace loose gravel or stone for Gravel driveways, due to the nature of the snow clearing operations it is possible. We will do our best to minimize this, however, clean up and replacement of gravel will be the responsibility of the client, not The Gardener*. If you would like a quote in the Spring to redistribute any displaced gravel, please contact the office.
For safety reasons and to avoid damage to the homes of clients with inclined driveways of more than 15 degrees, The Gardener reserves the right to charge a reasonable additional amount or in extreme cases cancel the contract. If the contract is terminated the client will receive a full refund within 10 business days.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Gardener reserves the right to reduce service levels if necessary. While we will make every effort to provide your winter services at a high level, they could be affected by the ongoing affects of the Covid 19 pandemic or subsequent waves of the virus. If there are any impacts that affect our operations such as but not limited to: mandatory work stoppages announced by the Government, staff reductions caused by infections, limits on how many staff can work in a vehicle, slowdowns caused by following enhanced safety protocols or any other impacts of the Covid 19 pandemic or any other virus affecting the local area, The Gardener cannot be held liable if your winter services are delayed, cancelled or otherwise affected.
