Site Policy and Disclaimer

Terms of Use:

Use of: http://www.TastyLandscape.com / “TastyLandscape”

This policy is valid from April 23, 2013 to date.

The reading of all information on TastyLandscape.com is at your own free will (obviously). If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions, you should cease the use of this website immediately. If you do however want to read some awesome gardening and home landscape related articles, please don’t leave just yet.

I reserve the right to change any of these Terms and Conditions or other information at any given time on this website.  I can be a restless person and have a tendency to update things when I find better stuff.  Therefore, please check back here often.

Even though I work very hard to provide you with the best up-to-date information (via meticulous research and eating lots of fruit while re-writing already published articles), I make no representations or warranties of any kind (expressed or implied) about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability of any information, products, services or related graphics contained on TastyLandscape for any purpose.

Specifically;  when it comes to current prices, addresses, opening hours, phone numbers, gardening  information and website addresses, I advice you to double check. I don’t want you to drive for over 2 hours with screaming kids in the back of the car to get to a garden-nursery that has been turned into a housing development.

I aim to provide you with accurate information at the time of publishing, but some information will understandably be less accurate as time passes. Overall, the goal of this site is for all of us to be able to share our best combined insight and information.  Should you find any inaccurate information, please do not hesitate to contact me (the comments section of a particular article is the best way).  I will drop everything, get behind my computer and correct any glaring mistake or grammar error right away… or as soon as I have finished chasing down that dam squirrel. I do have my priorities you see.


Copyright Policy:

Unless otherwise noted, I (Thomas Osborne, MD from TastyLandscape) am the legal copyright holder of all (written, multimedia and graphic) material on this website and it may not be used, reprinted, (partially or in full) modified or published without my written consent. A link to TastyLandscape.com must appear in all copies of any articles, artwork, photographs or other content.

On that note, I want to thank Nienke Krook from The Travel Tester for much of the content on this ‘Site Policy and Disclaimer’ page.

Guest bloggers and other contributors to TastyLandscape are responsible for their own submitted material on my website and have to ensure that their work complies with national, foreign, comical, and gravitational laws. The opinions expressed by any Third Parties are their own and do not necessarily represent the position or beliefs of TastyLandscape.com.  I am also not responsible – but very sorry – for any narrow minded, impolite or offensive comments by others on this blog.


Hold Harmless:

All the information provided on TastyLandscape.com is for general information (and sometimes entertainment purposes) only and is the expressed opinion of myself, Thomas Osborne, MD (‘TastyLandscape‘) and not necessarily others.  This includes (but is not limited to) my membership organizations and/or employers.  I have been known to question the ‘norm’ and I do like to experiment with new ideas.  Therefore, article format and content may be a bit different to what you might be used to.

Although I am a medical doctor, on this site I am not providing any medical advice.  On that note, I am also not providing any professional, nutritional, legal… astrological, or paleontological advice either. When reading the content on this site, you are taking all the provided information at your own risk. Please contact your local hospital, emergency service, jurist, bar association, phone book, Google or your mother-in-law to find or obtain a referral to a competent professional.

Under no circumstances will I be liable for any loss or damage (including without limitation indirect or consequential loss or damage) or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of or in connection with the use of this website.

I cannot be held responsible for any offence taken due to translation, interpretation or mistakes in grammar and/or punctuation of my website’s content. I am originally from New York so please forgive me.

Although I try to keep TastyLandscape.com running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, access to the site may be temporarily or permanently suspended and without notice at my own discretion, due to possible updates or technical issues beyond my control, such as natural disasters or by my daughter pressing that power button on my computer power cord.

I will not be liable if for any reason the website is unavailable at any time or for any period of time. I will try to get the website back online as soon as possible; or as soon as the earthquakes and fires stop.


Privacy Statement:

Any personal and/or contact information provided to me will be kept private. You will not be spammed in any way, I will not send you Valentines and/or Christmas Cards (unless you ask me to and I really like you) and I will not sell or disclose your information to any other companies. I am not responsible for the privacy practices of any of my advertisers or blog commenter’s.   If you don’t want your name published on a comment just let me know. If you later change your mind, that is cool too… I will modify to your personal preference as soon as I am done dealing with the rattlesnake in my neighbors yard or when I am back from a conference.


Reserve Rights:

I, Thomas Osborne, MD from TastyLandscape, reserve the right to change the focus of the website (like turning it into a platform for fellow philanthropists and fossil collectors), to shut it down, sell it, change the terms of use (go to a paid platform) at my own discretion.  Rest assured, all of this seems rather unlikely because the community we are building is rather awesome.

However, I do like humanitarians… esp philanthropists that would like to pay off my student loans.  I am patiently waiting to hear from you.

I also reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments submitted to TastyLandscape.com without notice due to: comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam, comments including profanity, comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive, comments that attack a group or person individually, or comments from my mom telling me to call her more often.


Advertisers and Sponsors:

I am not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues, not TastyLandscape.

Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

To help the website expand and to cover costs of running the site, some advertising and affiliate links are on this website. Affiliate links earn me a very (very) small commission on any purchases made when you get to Amazon.com from a link on this site.  Your purchase price of that product is the same regardless of how you get there.  I will do my absolute best to only provide you with the best information about products that I truly believe in.  I am also not shy about telling you if something is crap. I will never take your trust for granted. All reviews on my website will be presented honestly.


Letters to the Editor:

Any letters, e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter, or questions written directly to me may be used to share with my blogging audience unless specifically requested otherwise. On that note, I tend to err on the side of your privacy; I will reference your name if you have added it to the comment, but I won’t add your name or email if you did not put it directly in the written text of your comment.  If you don’t want your name, email (or anything else) published on a comment let me know. If you later change your mind, that is cool too… I will modify to your personal preference as soon as I am done dealing with the snakes, scorpions or squirrels… or when I am back from some interesting or boring conference.

Part of these letters, emails, questions or other feedback may be used in newsletters, blog posts, columns or up-and-coming books. As you can imagine, if you change your mind about your personal preference after a book publication, that will be harder to change in a timely way.

Big compliments are always cherished and the very best ones may be painted on a tile and put up in my kitchen or possibly the garden.


Thank you for visiting the website.  Please enjoy and share.

Thomas Osborne, MD
