Garden fence work / fencing

Wooden fences ( we should be a bit more specific and say wooden posts ) break quite often – unfortunately

, hence we always recommend our customers to consider concrete posts that will give many many years of “life in peace.”

We do understand however that such long term solutions are rather more expensive initially and are not always viable due to finances.

We can build or repair your fence as you request it, but we will always give our recommendations first. Final decisions is always yours.

Usually we find people request a fence work quotation only when old fence is insecure, unsafe, broken or non-existent ( blown down ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ) If you are in this situation, we at Tidy Gardens can surely help you ! Please do get in touch and we will visit your garden to assess your situation.

      Landscaping back garden. New patio area in a garden in Calcot

      Not beating about the bush let’s see what the patio area looked like before and after.

      And some still photos of the same area..

      Our job was to remove old decking, clear out old patio, and gravel. Install new gully and channel drains including all the connections needed.

      The next stage planned for this garden by the owners is to lay artificial grass – someone else’s job as we don’t do it.
      Due to the above the edges around the new patio have been left as is.
