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..

Fabulous! Paul & team did a great job doing a new tenancy clean up (thorough clean, carpet/curtain wash & garden tidy) for a house we’re letting out in quick time & at a good price.
Paul also did a tidy up of our own garden in no time at all. Now we’ve found someone local who’s pleasant,polite, professional & reliable, we won’t be going elsewhere!
Tree fell and stump removed Very efficient and tidy work at a good price.
Paul and his colleague attended within the time stated to fell a tree that was beginning to interfere with my nieighbours house. They even grounded out the stump so the ground was levelled off.
All arisings were cleared away to leave the garden clean and tidy.
Job was done so quickly and well that they also picked up some work from my neighbour too.

Paul has been reshaping and clearing my garden borders which has involved removing ivy from a wall, digging up some small trees, taming the climbing plants and clearing and turning over the soil in order to plant or relocate new shrubs.
I can now see the small garden path which had been covered in weeds for years! The shrubs now have a chance to thrive and survive the winter. Throughout, he has been industrious and thorough in tackling each of the problem areas. He is also knowledgeable…

Pawel laid a new lawn and completely transformed a barren landscape.also cleared and tidied up old shrubs. A very efficient service, I cannot recommend them highly enough.
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.
New look - garden landscaped We moved recently and the small garden was very overgrown. However, with the help of Paul and Eddie we now have a completely renovated garden with new patio areas, lawn and flower beds. We are so pleased with the result. Paul and Eddie worked tirelessly and were extremely professional. Paul is quite knowledgeable about plants and garden design and they both took great pride in their work. We would definitely recommend them.
Please have a look at the video of this project
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 🙂
Fantastic!!! Highly recommend Thank you so much. I am over the moon with the sevice and professionalism from Paul at Tidy Gardens. The new fence has transformed my garden. Thank you 🙂
I’ll allow myself to include a couple of photos – before and after
Thank you for such a nice comment Danni

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.

Great service Paul gave a price for the job and completed it very well and tidily. Very reasonably priced. I’ll be using him again without a doubt.
Fantastic service, back garden was covered in leaves, Paul and his colleague turned up on time and did a great job, thank you very much.
Reliable honest work !! I have used Paul’s professional services three times now for fencing, fence repairs and the laying of stepping stones.
I will be honest, I could have done all these jobs myself, but I simply value my free time to do other things.
I can only have Paul do these jobs for me because he is real value for money. His quotes are always honest and competitive.
He will always discuss your requirements and provide alternatives solutions if you want them.
He just turns up and gets on with the jo… Read more
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.
Pauline O. Tilehurst, August 2013 Just to confirm that we employed gardener – Paul to do some work for us a while ago. The garden was
quite overgrown and unkempt.
This is to confirm that he was hardworking, did a good tidy job, and worked longer than was arranged in order to get the job done to our satisfaction. Would have no quarms about recommending him to anyone else.

Fantastic service from Tidy Gardens
The Tidy Gardens/DGL team did a first class landscaping job for us. Edward worked incredibly hard throughout and Paul’s project management, attention to detail and design were really valuable, even when the scope of the project changed part way through.
I highly recommend them and will not hesitate to use them again for other garden projects in future!
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
