8.9 Due to the fragile nature of sod grasses, all sales are final and there are no guarantees or refunds even if you follow all the care instructions on our website. Please note: No warranty exists for jobs that do not have an irrigation system. For any type of sod to survive, it requires a minimum of 5 to 6 hours of sunlight per day and must be sprayed to prevent fungus and pests. Lack of proper maintenance for one day could cause newly installed sod to die. Due to the weight of our equipment and product upon delivery, damages may occur on driveways and sidewalks. The driver will only follow the customer’s instructions. By continuing with this purchase, you agree to release JMC Landscaping of any responsibility of such damages.
