dying established shrubs
A large project completed by a landscape gardening company has been completed mid January after about 3 months work altogether. Many of our mature well established shrubs were dug up and temporarily planted at least twice. Two of these, which we actually purchased and planted 18 months ago are now dead or dying. Several other established shrubs which were moved also seem on the way out. As we have not paid the final payment yet, can I legally withold a sum to replace the shrubs damaged by not being moved/ replanted carefully enough?.
