About us

We, GardenMaintenance.ie (“we”, “us”, “GardenMaintenance.ie”) make the Facilitation Services available to you via the Website.

“Request”a request from a Customer as referred to in clause 2.2 below;
“the Customer” / “you”businesses and consumers who use the Website to request a Professional who can provide the professional services they require;
“Customer Contract”the contract between the Professional and the Customer for the provision of the Services;

2.The Facilitation Services

2.1.GardenMaintenance.ie operates the Website which has been established to facilitate connections between potential Customers and Frofessionals for the provision of garden maintenance services.

2.2.Customers will be able to submit an inquiry via the Website to be connected with potential professionals, and the Website owner(s) will identify professionals who may be able to meet the Customer’s requirements. We call Customer requests “Requests”, and each request may result in us putting Professionals in contact with you who may be able to fulfil the criteria you have provided.

2.3.To use the Facilitation Services, you will be required to accept these Terms and Conditions on submitting a Request, and an agreement will be formed between you and us for the provision of the Facilitation Services at that point. You will need to enter into a separate contract with any Professionals you wish to instruct to provide you with Services. See below for more information.

2.4.When you submit your Request, you allow us to verify your contact details and location at our discretion. If the contact details are incorrect, inoperative or disabled, or if the IP address associated with the request does not match the location of the service requested or falls outside GardenMaintenance.ie’s operation area, your request may be rejected.

2.5.When your Request is verified, we may share your contact details with Professionals so that they may make contact to discuss your Request. There is no guarantee that Professionals will make contact.

2.6.You will be entitled to review the information you receive from the Professionals, and may or may not decide to engage a Professional to provide the Services you require. We cannot in any way endorse or confirm that the Professionals identified as a result of the Facilitation Service we offer are able to fulfil your requirements, and it will be your sole responsibility to engage with the Professional to establish whether they can meet your requirements prior to you entering into a Customer Contract. We do not vet or vouch for the services of any Professional and you must enter into your own due diligence prior to engaging with their Services.

2.7.If you do engage a Professional to provide the Services, you will become a customer of the Professional and will enter into a Customer Contract with them. For the avoidance of doubt, the Services are provided to you by the Professional, and not by GardenMaintenance.ie. GardenMaintenance.ie is not a party to any Customer Contract and under no circumstances will any such contract create an employment or any other service relationship between GardenMaintenance.ie and any Customer.

2.8.GardenMaintenance.ie will share details of the Customer with the Professional so they may make contact with the Customer. These details include one or more of the following: Customer name, email, phone number, address (where applicable).

2.9 .GardenMaintenance.ie has no influence or control whatsoever over the information contained on the Professional’s website (if applicable) and accepts no liability for its content. The content of such third-party websites is the responsibility of the respective Professional. You must contract directly with the Professional for any Services you require from them.

2.11. The Facilitation Services shall be provided to you at no cost.

Important:
GardenMaintenance.ie acts only as a facilitator of the introductions referred to above, and the provision of any Services by a Professional to a Customer will be subject to an entirely separate legal contract. If there are any issues with performance of those Services by the Professional, you will have legal rights of redress against the Professional directly, and not against GardenMaintenance.ie.
