When it's time to leave a rented property and hand it back over to the estate agency, usually the tenant is obliged to leave garden in good condition. This certainly was not a good condition so we had been asked to tidy it up.
An old apple tree needs a bit of grooming .. but it has to be done over a couple of years
When it comes to fruit tree pruning you might think that one season will be enough to bring back a tree from a total mess to a well structured, healthy and fruitful tree but no it
isn't enough. Most of the time you need to allow few years to reshape such tree.
Tree we have done recently had lots of water sprouts ( suckers ) that haven't been removed after someone else before did what it seemed to me like a major reduction ..
It had some rubbing, crossing branches and some dead ones..
Decision was to remove suckers, crossing / rubbing branches and some dead ones. No reduction this year as this would have been too much in my opinion.
Small garden turfing job in a new-built house in south of Reading
It was a good morning warm up job.
We've cleared, rotavated with added quality compost, levelled and laid turf rolls... but hang on ...we've also watered, tided up afterwards, and gave few words of advise about after-care 😉
Major garden tidy up - Hurst. July 2014 Paul carried out a major tidy of my garden.
His work ethics and quality of finish was exemplary.
Held up to his word of finishing the work to my expectations. Even though it took longer to complete he was honourable to his original quote
Recommendation ! I just wanted to recommend Paul as a gardener. I met him for the first time this week , I wanted a local gardener. He is so polite , pleasant and happy to please. He left the garden very tidy and neat after completing the weeding and trimming.
I also have asked him to return to do some fencing for me ,I would thoroughly recommend Paul to any body.
Personable and professional, April 2014 Excellent work at a competitive price.
Listened to what I needed doing and added his professional knowledge to make sure my Trees were not damaged. Friendly and quick. I would certainly recommend.
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

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.
Excellent quality, efficient and conciencous TidyGardens came in to fell 5 mid sized conifers, install a section of high quality trellis (supplied by them), and to do a general clean up and tidy of what was a quite messy front and back garden that we inherited from the previous owners.
The work was carried out very quickly, to a very high standard, and always in consultation with us, to ensure that we were happy as the work progressed.
All in all, I can highly recommend TG; they are very hard working, conscientious and very keen to e… Read more

Alison, Reading, December 2013 My garden was in need of a lot of TLC.
I contacted Paul who arrived straight away and gave me a quote.
He arrived at the weekend in the rain and did a fantastic job of clearing weeds, cutting down dead trees, pruning roses, cutting back ivy and much more.
He completed the job, even e-mailed me with ideas of what to plant in the space I now had.
I would definitely recommend Paul. Thank you very much.
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

Sue Dodd Pawel and his team arrived promptly and got down to work quickly on what was a tough job – clearing brambles and strimming on a steep slope and cutting back some very overgrown shrubs and trees. I’m very pleased with the result – it looks so tidy! It was very good value for money.
Front lawn landscaped Paul recently re-landscaped my front lawn. He removed so serious hard to get tree stumps, levelled out the ground, relaid the lawn and finished off by doing some pave edgings for some rose bushes. The quality of his work was really good and he even started the work on the Easter Monday Bank Holiday. I have already recommended him to my brother and will do the same to those who ask who did the work. Excellent work by a polite and friendly chap.
Carly, Caversham, Reading, November 2013 Our little jungle had the local cats pretending to be tigers in the long grass but Paul managed to address this in a jiffy! He is punctual and professional- a pleasure to have around I can’t recommend him enough!

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!!
Garden tidy-up - July 2014 On the hottest day of the year so far, Paul and his team worked non-stop to tidy our front and back gardens, which had been neglected for a while.They did a first-class job and I am very happy with the result. I would highly recommend Tidy Gardens.
Fab job Just to say thank you to Paul for doing a really great job for me, for a good price and at short notice on the weekend before Christmas – was able to put my light up afterwards and it looks awesome. Thanks again Paul! 🙂
Unusual garden service Paul provides an unusual service – he knows what he’s doing! He can identify and name most plants, especially the difference between weeds and perennials unlike several of his competitors in the area.
Added to that knowledge Paul and Radek provided a good service and created a very tidy garden in a few hours. Recommended.
Excellent service and workmanship Tidy gardens cleared an area of garden and laid new turf with some landscaping.
Did a great job as per quotation and always turned up as expected.
Would use again and happy to give a recommendation.
Garden work / Reading - review I would highly recommend TIdy Gardens for your gardening jobs. Paul provided a quote and carried out the work in an excellent manner. Tidy Gardens lives up to its name as there was no evidence of Paul being here apart from a super tidy garden. Our garden waste had to be carried through the house and there wasn’t a leaf or a speck of soil around when I got home. Also Paul didn’t just do what he quoted for. He went the extra mile. Look no further for your garden needs. Amanda Adkins
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.
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
