Our team of highly qualified professionals possess the necessary skills, experience and equipment to help you deliver a successful project.

This knowledge and experience is underpinned by the Vertas Group's core business principles, ensuring that our customers remain at the heart of everything we do.

Our tried, tested and successful management process starts with the ‘Project Scope’. This sets out the project milestones and parameters, and is agreed by the client before work commences; ensuring we deliver exactly what you require.

Equipped with modern technologies, including Computer Aided Design software (AutoCAD) and Smartsheet (project management tool) - no job is too large or small.

If your project involves any of the following, we can help!


Natural and synthetic turf

We offer free advice and can help in the design, specification and construction of a wide range of natural and artificial grass, including:

  • Amenity and Sports Turf
  • Reinforced grass protection grids for vehicle and pedestrian areas
  • Rubber safety surfaces
  • Artificial grass (3G, sand filled and sand dressed surfaces)

We can also help in the maintenance of artificial grass and other surfaces as we operate a modern fleet of specialist equipment.


Design and Construction of Children's Equipped Play Areas

When designing children's play areas it is our absolute priority to ensure the area complies with all current and relevant Health & Safety guidelines such as EN1176/77.

Our post-installation service will provide you with a certificate to verify that equipment has been installed correctly – offering peace of mind. Our play area designs will also ensure maximum play value in order to keep children engaging in the play activity for as long as possible.

Don’t settle for second best when you might be able to achieve much more with a little imagination and creative flair – our team of in-house designers will assess your site conditions and provide options that make the most of the surrounding features and the environment.

We also provide a playground Inspection Service; please contact us for further details.


Hard & Soft Landscaping

Our multi-skilled and experience team can help develop your ideas, providing sketch proposals and price options.

We offer a comprehensive, one-stop shop in project management, helping to negotiate planning consent, carrying out ecological and wildlife audits and reports, checks for utility apparatus and services before work commences; working drawings, specifications and professional oversight of work to ensure your project is brought in on time and to budget.

If you are thinking of any of the following, we can help!

  • Decorative paving and wall construction
  • Shelters and canopies
  • Car park extensions
  • Footpaths and ornamental features.
  • Pond construction and creation of ecological / wildlife habitat
  • Large and small scale tree and shrub planting

We will provide a no obligation estimate based on the agreed project scope before finalising the detail.
