March! perfect time to reinvigorate your lawn – aeration and lawn scarification
Yesterday we had a perfect day to do some mechanical lawn treatments. It’s best to do it once a year – more is not really a better option in this case.
We had done two gardens. Hollow plug aeration followed by light scarification. If you’d like to read more about this service or book it with us then please follow this link
Please do visit this page in awhile – I will add photos of the same lawn and how it reacted to these treatments.
Fingers crossed !
Lawn aeration.. do you want a better looking lawn ?
We have aerated and top dressed about 300m2 of this lawn last year. I started a regular lawn cut in this garden again this year and had a chance to see the results..
Below a photo right after aeration and top dressing.
Unfortunately I haven’t got an earlier photo but I’m sure you can see a terrible state this lawn was in. It suffered from a severe compaction, it was difficult to stick a knife few cm in..
It was dry and more brownish than green..
Few other photos show the same lawn this year. It recovered fully and quickly after our lawn aeration service which allowed more air and nutrients to get to the roots.
It is worth mentioning that not every lawn will benefit as much from aerating as this one. Some lawns don’t even need aeration and could benefit more from moss treatments, overseeding, scarification or simple lawn feeding.. .
Let Tidy Gardens assess your lawn and provide best treatment it requires.
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…
Professional, personable, good quality work Paul carried out some work on my property today. It was a relatively small job (extending a path using paving stones) which took him and his colleague about a day to complete. He and his colleague turned up on time and then proceeded to carry out the work as agreed. The quality of work was excellent and he kept me informed to what he was doing, to ensure that the work was being done to my satisfaction. After completion he tidied up and left the premises neat and tidy. I would not hesitate to con… 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.
G Rull Many thanks to the team for responding, quoting and doing the garden work so quickly. I would definitely recommend using your services to others I know.
Jill C. Ascot, August 2013 I have been very pleased with the work undertaken by Paul. It is a relief to finally find a gardener who is diligent, committed & reliable.
Paul always turns up when expected and just gets on with the job in hand. It is important that you discuss your needs & requirements with Paul ideally ahead of his visit so that he is able to work without any delay.
Also this makes sure that you understand how much the work will cost and how long it will take.
Paul is very knowledgeable regarding plants &… Read more
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 🙂
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

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.

Jeannie Brice Great Work! Awesome effort on what had to be the hottest day of the year!
Quiet, hard working individuals – would recommend.
Ann Honeybill October 2020.
Excellent result! I have just had my front lawn returfed and my rear lawn aerated and top dressed by Paul and his team. Paul is always my first choice for any gardening projects and, as always, the work was carried out quickly and efficiently. They work through all weather conditions and make sure everything is tidy before they leave. I highly recommend them.
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

Absolutely fantastic gardener I live in central Reading and needed trees removing, bushes removing, and other bits.
The guys did a fantastic job. They not only did exactly what I wanted but went further – they hauled out bits of cement and took away extra stuff that I hadn’t realised I would need removing.
They turned up on time, laid sheets everywhere to prevent a mess through the house, and worked non-stop.
Will use them again and recommend them to my friends and neighbours. Absolutely brilliant.
Many thanks.… Read more
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.
Excellent work My old Gardner was moving into a different aspect of maintenance so I looked for a replacement
I found Paul and after reading the glowing reports contacted him. He came when he said to see the garden gave an immediate quote. He returned to start the job and we had a Wedding to go to so left them to it upon returning the following day we were extremely pleased with the work done and the garden was left clean and tidy.

Garden Tidy up Paul did a great job clearing my garden which had been neglected for nearly six months and was heavily overgrown with bamboo & ivy. He arrived on time, work was done exactly as discussed and I’m really pleased with the result.
Major Tidy up To my eternal shame I only ever call Paul when my garden has got completely out of control…. This time a major hair cut was required, including lopping trees, trimming shrubs and removal of saplings and rooting out ivy brambles and weeds…A large job completed over several days.- As last time I’m very pleased with the result, and I’d recommend him and his team without reservation.
We asked Paul at Tidy Gardens to undertake a major garden clearance – topping out overgrown trees, taking out and thinning bushes and general ground clearance.
Not only did his team do an outstanding job, but was flexible around timing, offered us great advice and even kept the neighbours happy. We could not recommend him highly enough to others who need either a major makeover like us or regular maintenance.
Great service and very happy customer! Paul came around quickly as promised to give us a quote and provided exactly what we wanted at a great price. Fast, friendly, professional service and tidied up everything very well. We were also given advice/tips on how to maintain the garden and improve its appearance. Recommend using this company and we will use them again in the future!
