I love working with HCL, they are professional, totally reliable and absolutely meticulous. Every project is planned with the same respect for detail and site problems are solved with care and efficiency.
— Philippa O’Brien, MSGD. Chair of Society of Garden Designers
HCL have been appointed to undertake the both soft and hard landscape contract for del Buono Gazerwitz having gone through a competitive tender process.

During the course of these projects we found the standard of workmanship to be very high. At all times, the team were very good communicators, making sure to keep us fully up to date with site progress. Their work was tidy, efficient and as per the proposals and programme. In addition, they were pro-active in providing cost effective solutions to unforeseen situations.

The client felt that HCL were extremely professional and extremely amenable at all times. We would have no doubt in appointing HCL to undertake future work for del Buono Gazerwitz Ltd.

Managing Director

Sam is the company owner and works on the construction side of the company. Along with Peter Jaslowski, he personally project manages all the companies garden builds.

"My ethos, when it comes managing our builds, is to ensure that our attention to detail and quality of finish is of the highest possible standard -the best way to achieve this is to be totally involved myself.

Myself and our Contract Managers communicate closely with our clients and designers to ensure that the entire process runs smoothly. We aim to conduct ourselves with an efficient and friendly attitude to our management – nothing is too much trouble!"


Piotr Jaslowski 

Senior Project Manager

Piotr has worked within HCL for over 10 years now, having started as an on site landscaper. He now helps project manage HCL’s garden builds with an extremely knowledgeable and positive frame of mind.

"In the last 10 years we have worked for so many different garden designers who all want to use individual and unique materials. This has meant that myself and the team have become experienced using many different timbers, stones and new landscaping materials.

We can now create a polished rendered finish in any available colour on the market, we can in part textures onto surface which mimic the natural veining found within stone. If there is a particular stone or timber that we are required to instal, we can advise on sealants and treatments before and after installation – this can not be taught, you can only learn these applications by years of experience and research!"
