9.1.5  Our acceptance of your order. We will confirm our acceptance of your order to you by sending you a Dispatch Confirmation or by fulfilling the order and completing delivery of the Products, unless, prior to dispatch, we notify you that we do not accept your order (see paragraph 9.2 below).  The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation or complete delivery of the Products.

9.1.6  Reviewing accepted orders (online only). We keep a record of the orders that you place with us in the My Account area, which you can view by logging-in to your account.

9.2  If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to supply you with your Product(s) ordered, for example because that Product(s) is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our Site as referred to in paragraph 12.4, we will inform you of this by email and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Product(s), we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible, by the same method in which the payment was originally made.

10. YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR ORDER

Changes to your order. If you wish to make a change to the Product(s) you have ordered please contact us by telephone or email. We will let you know if the change is possible.

11. OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES TO THESE TERMS

11.1  Changes to these Terms and the Products. We may revise these Terms and the Products from time to time for any reason, including to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements. For further information, please see paragraph 32.

12. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES

The delivery charges will vary depending on the place of delivery and in some cases, the date and time slot chosen by you when placing an order on the Site or over the telephone.

12.2  Where to find the price for the Product? The prices of the Products will be as quoted on the Site from time to time. Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation. If we discover an error in the price of the Product(s) you ordered, please see paragraph 12.4 for what happens in this event.

12.3  We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. 

12.4  What happens if we got the price wrong? We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However, the Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products on the Site may be incorrectly priced.

14. DELIVERY AND COLLECTION

14.1  Delivery timescales. You may select when you want the Product(s) delivered, and charges will vary dependent on the timescale selected.

14.2  We are not responsible for delays outside our control. Your order will be fulfilled by the estimated delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation. There are some circumstances outside of our reasonable control that may affect delivery times (for example extreme weather, road accidents, our third party delivery providers vehicles breaking down or IT failures) and we, therefore, do not guarantee any delivery dates or times. As such we do not recommend you organise any third party suppliers (such as landscapers) around delivery dates. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of such circumstances, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date or time. We will cover the costs of re-delivery in such circumstances but will not be responsible for any third party costs that you have to pay as a result of you arranging third-party suppliers around delivery dates.

When delivery cannot be made due to access difficulties or offloading/parking restrictions an additional delivery charge may be incurred by you.

As such, you shall not be eligible for a refund of the price of the Product(s) or for any delivery charges.

14.5  When will completion of delivery take place? We will deliver the Product(s) to the address you give us.

We will not be responsible for any deterioration or theft of the Product(s) left at your address.

If you do not collect the Product(s) from a Collection Point as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the Contract and paragraph 22.2 will apply.

14.9  When will you become responsible for the Products? The Product(s) will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery or, the day you collect the Product(s) (whichever is applicable).
