Sam Hassall has been a professional in the Landscape environment for over 25 years.
He studied Civil engineering initially but then switched to landscape engineering with strong landscape design and horticulture elements.
He worked initially on contracting projects but turned to consultancy in the new millennium as he recognised a need for more precise cost consultancy in the landscape sector.
He is the MD of LandPRO Ltd which provides specialist advice to landscape professionals on cost feasibility of landscape projects both short and long term. He has been involved in some of the UK’s most prestigious public realm projects assisting to bring them to fruition.
LandPRO specialises in the delivery of advance cost information for landscape design purposes and accurate tender information for landscape contractors.
As part of this he is also employed by landscape contractors who wish to acquire specific projects to evaluate price and advice on the profitability of these projects.
He also developed the Liberate Estimating system which is used by Landscape contractors in the UK and Australia to win and maximise their profitability on Landscape contracts.
He has also written the Spons landscape book from 1998 to 2021.
