Hambrooks specialise in the design, construction and maintenance of high quality gardens. In order to support the construction and maintenance teams Hambrooks has its own landscape yard, wholesale plant nursery and workshops.

The company’s key environmental considerations:
Legislative Compliance
Hambrooks is committed to comply with all relevant environmental legislation and applicable codes of practice.
Pollution Prevention

We will minimise our routine emissions and put procedures in place to contain any emergency situations.

Waste Management
 We aim to reduce, reuse and recycle as much of our waste materials as possible in order to minimise the amount sent to landfill.
Hambrooks will ensure, as far as possible that its suppliers conform to environmental best practice. The company will monitor its use of fuel and electricity and implement measures to reduce consumption.
Hambrooks will ensure that all of its staff are trained to appreciate the need to handle waste and resources in a responsible manner. More specific training will be provided for those who need it. The training requirements will be kept under constant review.
Continual Improvement
Hambrooks will monitor the effectiveness of this policy on a regular basis and make any changes that are necessary to keep the company at the forefront of environmental best practice.
Hambrooks seeks to carry out its operations with the minimal adverse impact on the environment and has set the following objectives for 2013. Specific targets will be set for water consumption on the nursery and we will explore ways to reduce our fuel consumption in order to address our CO2 emissions. Each of our waste streams will also have targets for reduction set against it.
Our progress against these targets will be regularly reviewed.
Fully committed
All employees and sub-contractors are expected to co-operate and assist in the implementation of this policy. The policy will be fully communicated to all relevant stakeholders.
The directors have overall responsibility for all environmental matters. The operation of this policy and the associated procedures will be monitored and reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that they remain current and applicable to the company’s activities. This policy has been endorsed by the board of directors, which gives its full support to its implementation.

I would like to say how delighted we are with the work carried out. Mel, Paul and Tony all worked very hard, they totally took on board the specific need relating to safety as well as the general garden issues. Paul and Tony were excellent at consulting and discussing with me what I felt best in terms of the brief and adjusting if and as necessary, constantly pleasant and polite to deal with. Mel had picked up on particular issues from the first consultation and offered valuable advice. The outcome means a great deal less worry for me going forward.
Altogether a very positive experience and outcome which I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Dom and Adam's work (garden maintenance) is greatly appreciated. Dom really listened to everything we discussed very carefully and went out of his way to understand and then act upon that discussion. We are extremely pleased with the work done - both to the pond and pyracantha.


We have been coming to Hambrooks for years and it's our favorite garden centre because of its friendly helpful staff and a great selection of plants and trees and the garden design ideas.

“We wanted to write and say how pleased we are with our low maintenance garden makeover. We are very impressed with the attitude of your staff who were prepared to listen to our requirements. Your team John and Rick brushed up and left everything tidy at the end of the day. We now have a garden we can manage and it looks great. THANK YOU HAMBROOKS.”

“To James, John & Rikki. Thank you so much, we are delighted with our new garden. We really appreciate the attention to detail, the high quality workmanship and the standard of the finished project. We are amazed at how John & Rikki resolved the difficulties of the site and by the quality of their craftmanship.

“Dear Tess, Ian & Gareth, thank you for working so hard to produce our beautiful new front garden. You engaged with us throughout the process from initial concept to its completion, which more than surpassed our expectations. Your work ethic, professionalism and dedication were exemplary. Once again thank you!”

Mr & Mrs Springett, Gosport. September 2019

"Dear Kevin, The garden looks amazing and we can’t thank you and the team enough for the transformation. It’s much easier now for Colin to get around so we’re looking forward to some nice weather to fully enjoy our new garden. In the meantime we are enjoying looking at it from indoors!"

Mr J Bastian, Fair Oak. October 2019

"I'm writing to say how impressed I am with the 2 gents you sent to me last week to carry-out the autumn maintenance. They achieved so much in 1 day, clearly understand their plants and were a pleasure to have around the home and family. I do hope they are able to return to my garden especially when we get into the regular maintenance next year. Please pass on my thanks to the team."
