Recent job included creating a new lawn area surrounded by paving blocks to act as a lawn edge
When I'm being asked to returf some gardens I often try to convince my customers to spend a bit more money and do it the right way!
Everyone who has a garden and lawn knows that they will need a lawn mower. Actually they think lawn mower is the only machine needed to look after their lawn, but is it ?
On a photo above you see a man using grass strimmer. You have to use it if you won't plan / design your garden well. Strimming everywhere.. along the fences, walls, unedged flower beds and other inconveniences..
How about a simple solution like we did in garden below ?
- A simple block or stone buried in that sits flush with your lawn so you can run you mower along it and cut the edge nicely.
- It also prevents grass from growing into flower beds and your bulbs / flowers / weeds growing into the lawn.
Please check photos below and let us know what you think.
Are you looking for a garden landscaper to improve your garden?. Reading Landscapers @ Tidy Gardens can do it for You
Few days ago our Reading landscaper started a new project that includes:
- Removal of part of a wooden fence and a brick wall built instead.
- Brick wall with a narrow planter at the bottom to accomodate some herbs / flowers..
- Decking constructed ( 30m2 ) of hardwood timber ( western red cedar )
Some plants have to be moved as well to include japonica Hivernant and some roses. Still dormant time so these plants shouldn't have problems to adopt in a different place..
Our landscapers definitely recommend choosing hardwood decking boards. Few advantages of this material below: -hardwood has natural, rustic, authentic appearance that none of the coatings, paints etc used on softwood can replicate. -hardwood is exceptionally strong, durable and naturally resistant to rot and insect resistant. You pay more but you get a product that will outlast any other softwood constructions. -hardwood decking is generally a very good choice for longevity, beauty, and overall performance.
Below few photos of the area under construction..
One shrub ( japonica Hivernant ) transplanted
Some photos of the deck being constructed...
With spare wood we created this bespoke and unique garden table. It was designed to fit 8 people.
And finally some photos of the overall look.. New hardwood decking and a new brick wall with a planter box built in..

Our very large, long, and overgrown hedge, was cut and re-shaped and by Paul and his partner exactly as promised. So hard-working and easy to deal with. Great job!!
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!
Excellent fortnightly service
We have used Tidy Gardens for fortnightly grass cutting and general garden maintenance, for well over a year now.
They are reliable and ready to advise on all aspects required. Highly recommended.

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.
May - 2019. Mick Pollek Awesome effort. Excellent work with great attention to detail
Dolores Slobodian - June 2019 Hardworking and efficient job.
I hired Tidy Gardens to trim the very overgrown hedges and bushes in my garden. I’m very pleased with the work. Paul and colleague were punctual, polite and worked very hard to complete the job. They tidied up afterwards and I’m very happy with the result. My garden is looking lovely and I would definitely use them again.

Simon An excellent job done to a very overgrown garden. Hedges cut, trees re-shaped and all cuttings removed. Reliable, punctual, friendly and polite. Come with my full recommendations. Thank you very much
April 2017. Excellent Service Many thanks Pawel for an excellent service cutting back and tidying bushes at the front and rear of our property. He turned up when booked, tidied up, took all the waste away for a very reasonable price.
We have been so impressed that we have now booked Pawel for further work.
Great impact on my garden After I had neglected our large garden for several months, I hired TidyGardens to come and sort it out. They quickly made a great impact on the garden, cutting no corners. After a little over a day’s work I can now enjoy our garden again. I have asked TidyGardens to maintain the garden for me on an ongoing basis so I don’t let it get overgrown again.
Excellent garden service Paul has done several large jobs for us in the garden over the last year – getting trees out, creating beds, reducing boundary tree height, fence building – and he has always provided an excellent service.
He has proved to be a reliable and hard worker, and has always given us very fair prices.
He’s a nice chap too 🙂
Jay, Caversham Heights, Reading, October 2013 Thanks to Tidy Gardens for the excellent job Paul did on our garden. We moved into a new house in September & the garden was a complete jungle, Paul came & cleared everything out, cut down trees, bushes and cleared the mess. He worked really really hard, was punctual, very polite & cheerfull. He left the place immaculate & filled us with confidence throughout. All in all I couldn’t be happier with the service that Tidy gardens provided. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul – extremely helpful … Read more

Great Job - Very good price for the hard work!
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!
Garden Tidy Up Paul did an excellent job of giving our garden a good tidy up front, back and side! He came out on a Thursday and completed the work the following Tuesday. His work was beyond expectations and I would definitely recommend him.
Pam, Lower Earley, Reading, October 2013 I can relax a little, now Paul is helping me to keep my Garden tidy and hopefully improve its quality. Not an easy challenge! Thank you Paul. Pam in Lower Earley

Excellent experienced people. Phoned Paul to quote for cutting a large conifer hedge in my daughters garden, he arrived on time and quoted a very fair price so we agreed a day to do the work. On the day he was prompt and set to work straight away and didn’t really stop for about 4 hours!! Everything was cleared away and he even used a blower on the lawn to remove the last pieces! Excellent bloke and would certainly use him again. Highly recommended.
Great work on difficult hedges Paul and colleague did a superb job trimming back a long run of mixed bushes that had been in place over 30 years. We wanted them cut back in size for easier trimming, and Paul first advised us what to do and warned us how it would look for a few months until the leaves grew back. We were very happy with his advice and the end result, and the great way they cleared everything up afterwards leaving the garden very neat and tidy. Now it’s up to nature to complete the transformation! We would recom… Read more
Jo Marsh Absolutely fabulous. Paul and his colleague worked tirelessly on my very overgrown border, it looks amazing and I cannot recommend his service enough.
