About Us

We are Landscape based Quantity Surveyors with a strong Landscape construction background which encompasses both the Civil, Construction and Horticultural side of the landscape.
Our roots are in Landscape and Landscape construction but we understand cost and how to get your project started and completed and to ensure that what you want delivered, is what you have budgeted for and what you expected.

About Us

Our specialist practice was started in 1991 by Sam Hassall, the principal. Sam studied civil engineering and Landscape construction management abroad, completing his studies in 1982. He has expertise in all aspects of Ground engineering, Landscape construction, as well as horticulture, botany, and soil sciences. He has over 25 years’ experience in the Landscape installation and aftercare industry. His work experience includes civil construction and an extensive base in landscape construction and management.
Our projects range from £30k up to £10 million.
We are regular guest lecturers in Landscape project costing, contract management and computer applications in the industry.
