CONTRACT LANGUAGE SHOULD BE WARM, NOT FUZZY.

Landscape-maintenance RPQs are too often met with fuzzy contract language written by landscape companies that should know better. If you’re a property manager, CAM or HOA board member, look for vague words like these:

– “Custom-blended” fertilizer (details, please?)
– “Standard-blend”
– “Similar to”
– “If deemed necessary” (by whose definition?)
– “From time to time”
– “Dictated by general conditions”
– “Occasionally inspected”
– “More or less”
– “Or an equivalent of…”

Fuzzy words and phrases could cost you, so insist on contract language that’s tight as a bud.
