Landscaping in Reading. Landscaping project now completed.
I reckon it's best to show some before and after photos. I also have a movie before and after so you can judge for yourself how good are work had been.
We followed a vision of an owner who knew exactly what he wanted albeit not from the very start, which caused some problems along the way.
We at Tidy Gardens would stipulate on proper thorough plan before any work is carried out. We are happy to discuss, advise and suggest our best ideas that we think will meet your desires before we start the project.
For this garden, the owners first vision was to have a semi circle pathway running between two entrances to the garden, from either side of the house. Then a large lawn area in the middle and flower beds between newly created pathway and a fence. Owners idea evolved into a patio area and another line of flags to be added along the house. Ultimately the lawn area was closed inside a small ellipse.
There's still planting to be done, which the owner wants to do himself.
Without further ado..
Please have a look at the video showing the garden before this landscaping project
Majority of landscaping work was done in the back garden, as shown on photos above. However, we have also been asked to shrink the front flower bed, therefore extend the driveway to accommodate 2 cars. It's been done using same paving blocks to match the existing driveway.
Here's what the driveway looks like after our landscaping work.

From old and shabby tarmac driveway to a smooth and beautiful block paved driveway !
"Now, here on this ragged patch of earth called" a lawn..
Grass doesn't grow well everywhere.. hence sometimes you have to come up with something different.
Here's two patches near the house that barely got any sun.. landscaped to give a maintenance free area and of good appearance.
Our recent work in Lower Earley / Reading involved some landscaping.
Plans were arranged with the owners who basically wanted two areas. One for kids to have their swings, slides, trampoline etc... and the other in grass. Two flower beds have also been included which have not been planted yet.
We had to plan and work around previously constructed areas like patio and pathways.. We only made one change to these which was the
extension of steps leading to the lawn. It was just two slabs before. We have rebuilt steps so that they stretch from side to side, whole length of patio.
Originally garden was just a plain, uneven, un-level tired patch of grass.
Ground consisted of very heavy clay which we have improved by incorporating a good amount of compost and mixing up clay and compost together.
It should give grass and other plants a very good base to grow on.
I hope you agree that we have turned it into something more interesting. Given some plants this garden could look amazing..
Garden's been sectioned off using railways sleepers.
Have a look at some photos taken at different stages of this project.
Any comments are welcomed.
Pam Thomas - December 2019 I wish I had taken a photo of my garden before Paul and his team arrived.
as it had extremely long wet grass, was very weedy with large overgrown shrubs.
After Paul’s first visit, the wet grass had been cut back, shrubs pruned and weeds removed.
On second visit – Grass mowed and now looking like a proper lawn again,
more weeds removed, and more shrubs pruned back.
Third (and last visit of the year) – Lawn looking good, neat and tidy, and now awaiting for spring of next year.
So, if you hav… Read more
Really impressed May 2019
I was really impressed by the service provided by Paul.
I had a garden full of weeds and no real idea of what to do with it, Paul helped me make decisions about how I wanted it to look.
The work was completed within a week and I am delighted with the results.
I would definitely recommend Paul and his team.
March 2018. Job well done We asked Paul to come and tidy our very overgrown garden. He did an excellent job. He is hard working, professional and well priced. We would definitely recommend him and may even have him back for further work in the future. Big thanks
Garden Tidy Up in Woodley. August 2014 I contacted Paul as my garden needed a good clean up. He was very efficient in responding to my emails, coming round to cost out the work and in getting the job done.
I would use Paul again and recommend him to anyone and everyone.
Eddie O'Hara June 2020.
Very pleased with Paul and the Team. Garden tidy up and new turf put down. Have now used twice and will use again.
Hedge trimming, May 2014 Paul was able to give us a competitive quote and complete the work shortly afterwards. I was delighted to come home to see the garden looking so much better and all the waste taken away.
Reliable, Knowledgable and Exceeded Expectations
Paul transformed my very overgrown garden into a manageable and welcoming environment. He along with his co-workers were exceptionally hard working, pleasant and knowledgeable, offering good advice to me.
The work was completed to a high standard with rubbish removed and pavements washed. I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Tidy Gardens who were also very price competitive. Thank you for all your hard work!
Garden Makeover - March 2017 My garden has resemble a wasteland for several years. Paul and Eddie started work on it early on Monday morning and by Saturday afternoon they had transformed it into a lawn, neatly edged with brick paving, with a flower bed at the rear ready for new plants. They carried on working through terrible weather and left everything clean and tidy when they’d finished.
They are reliable, helpful, hard working and very polite and I can highly recommend them. I have already asked Paul to do more gardeni… Read more
Paul came to give us a quote to clear and tidy up our garden. I could see that even through our messy garden, he could name the plants (invaded by the weeds!)
, but he could also tell us about various weeds, and what needed to be done (other gardeners did not have that approach unfortunately – showing your knowledge is key and this is the reason he got the job).
The garden is looking like I never seen it before. The house is ready to go on the market! Thank you Paul!
Parm, Reading, December 2013 Thanks Paul for the quick follow up to provide a quote for garden work in Lower Earley. Fast and reliable service, will definitely use again in the future for regular gardening services.

Chris, Bracknell, December 2013 Good, honest very hard working guy. Did a great tidy up of my garden in Bracknell. Now I can enjoy the view from my window over the Christmas holidays.
buddleia cut back Paul came very promptly to quote for chopping our enormous budliea. His quote was very reasonable and he returned next day to carry out the work. Very professional, gave sound advice about other plants in the garden, did a great job and took all rubbish away. Also cleaned up very thoroughly afterwards. I would gladly have him back for more work and recommend him to friends. Thanks Paul!
Hedge well done Called Pawel who was quite flexible in terms of timings. Worked to my convenience.
Wanted them to tidy up a messy big hedge. Did a very neat job and delivered everything as promised. Pricing was very reasonable too.
I recommend him for similar jobs.

We asked Paul of Tidy Gardens to carry our some lawn levelling and turfing work following construction of a new patio. All work was carried out in a professional but friendly manner and to our satisfaction. We are very pleased with the result and would recommend the team to other clients.
Sue, Farley Hill, October 2013 Paul responded very quickly to my enquiry, and was able to carry out the work straightaway. Our very large lawns were cut perfectly, and all the edges were strimmed and left neat and tidy. Pawel was very polite and courteous. We will certainly be recommending him, and using his services again.
