Turfing gardens around Reading

Turfing gardens around Reading

Turfing gardens in Reading. We use top quality turf supplied by Warfield Turf services.

We either use:

  • a premium turf which has superior appearance.
  • or RTF turf which has some other benefits to it like; drought resistance, ability to withstand being waterlogged, better shade tolerance, also self repairing feature due to its rhizomatous growth

Before laying turf we prepare the ground in the best possible way. We rotovate, level, incorporate organic matter into existing soil to support new laid turf.

Below few photos from a front garden where we have done some brick edging and laid RTF turf. Last photo taken two weeks after job was completed. You can see how well RTF turf has established.

Thanks for watching.

Lawn edging construction and returfing.

Lawn edging construction and returfing.

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 ?

trimming lawn edge

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..
