Planting Guide and Warranty


Complete the Loma Vista warranty card at the time of purchase and receive a one year warranty on most trees and shrubs.  Before you plant, it's important to know your site and plant health requirements.  Our Planting Guide and Warranty sheet has several tips for quickly establishing plants in your landscape along with details on our one year and five year warranties. 



5 Year Warranty with Myke Purchase




Plant with MYKE and have a healthier plant. It's guaranteed! Mycorhizae increases the nutrients and water absorption from the soil resulting in a plant that gets established faster in the landscape. With the purchase of the appropriate amount of MYKE, you will receive a five year warranty on most trees and shrubs. This is a one time warranty, customer must provide original sales receipt and bring in the dead plant to be replaced. See a sales associate at the nursery for the details.
