This year’s book has a heavily enhanced approximate estimates section, with most measured works items being also presented as composite items.
Now in its 33rd edition, Spon's External Works and Landscape Price Book 2014 offers the only comprehensive source of information for detailed external works and landscape costs. It covers all the items to be found in hard and soft landscape contracts, and forms an indispensable reference book for quantity surveyors, landscape architects, contractors and local authority managers – essential for compiling estimates, specifications, bills of quantities and works schedules – no matter what the size of the project being undertaken.
Use the access code inside the back cover of the book to get set up with internet access to this 2014 edition until the end of December 2014. We now provide Spon’s Online, a versatile and powerful online data viewing package, which replaces the estimating software and ebook of recent years.
The book now uses a combination of NRM1 and SMM7 as the measurement standards. This edition includes the following significantly developed items
Wildflower meadows – reflecting current trends
Urban and Street tree planting systems
Sudscape Porous paving systems
Maintenance operations for long term cyclic maintenance contractors

Material and measured work prices covering contract items from preliminaries and site clearance and encompassing the core external works activities with full breakdowns into labour, materials and other components
Detailed guidance on wage rates, landscape consultants’ fee scales
