The certified landscape offers written guarantees
Despite the undeniable appearance of landscaping, the « look good » is not enough. All individuals and institutions doing business with a certified member of APPQ should know that the acronym « paysagiste certifié » (certified landscape architect) is a guarantee of quality assured. In practice, this approach results in a quality contract in due form clearly specifying the responsibilities of the parties, the nature of the work, the duration of the guarantees and conditions of payment. The minimum guarantees provided by the landscape are a certified (1) year on plants and two (2) years on inert materials and labor.
