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.
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.
Colin September 2019 – Fence work
From first contact to completion, it has been a pleasure to deal with Paul and his colleagues. Very quick to respond. Very honest in assessment and advice. Took his advice are very happy with the result. Ours was a relatively small job, but still felt like offering the same help as if it were a big job was important to him.
Will definitely use again when opportunity arises.
Our thanks to Paul and his team.
Gardening in Tilehurst Paul and Eddie were back to trim our tree, grub out old buddleia and rampant ivy – all quickly and more importantly, professionally. Unlike previous firms we have used, every scrap was removed afterwards. Tidy Gardens have been our go to firm for years, and we wouldn’t dream of using anyone else. They’re the best.

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 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 🙂

Paul and colleagues did a first class cleanup and tidy on my overgrown garden.
No hesitation in recommending their work.
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.
Excellent fencing, carefully installed Tidy Gardens replaced about 10 fencing panels that had suffered in the recent storms. The new panels were of a high quality and were installed with great care and attention to detail. Paul and his staff were meticulous in tidying up afterwards, leaving the lawn spotless. My neighbour and I are delighted with our new fence and pleased that we chose Tidy Gardens to fit it for us.
Overgrown Cypress Leylandii Despite dreadful weather, Paul arrived punctually and worked tirelessly carrying out excellent work. He left the area perfectly clean and ‘tidy’. I was most impressed and now that my huge hedge has been brought under control I will be hiring Tidy Gardens on a regular basis.
Reliable, Knowledgable and Exceeded Expectations
Paul transformed my very overgrown garden into a manageable and welcoming environment. He along with his co-workers were exceptionally hard working, pleasant and knowledgeable, offering good advice to me.
The work was completed to a high standard with rubbish removed and pavements washed. I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Tidy Gardens who were also very price competitive. Thank you for all your hard work!

Phenomenal! I needed my back garden re turf-ed, and ideally re turf-ed quickly (small child in the house wanting to play in the garden).
Pawel (Paul) was easy to interact with, highly commutative, very knowledgeable (making a number of recommendations) and an extremely hard worker!
Happy to act as a reference.

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.
Re felting shed Many thanks for a job well done and a fast reply sent a text on Sunday and job done on Monday afternoon thank you.

Excellent, professional work! Paul trimmed a hedge (over 60 meters long and about 4m high). It was a big job as it had not been cut back for 2 years due to Covid. He was the most responsive person when I submitted a request for a quote. It was a quick turnaround . He was professional, worked incredibly hard and did an amazing job. I would highly recommend him.

Garden cut back and tidy We moved into our property last year and the garden needed some immediate attention. We started doing it ourselves but it soon became apparent that it needed some professional attention. I started looking around for local trustworthy gardeners and as soon as I saw Paul’s website I knew he would be the company I wanted to use. Not only were the already submitted testimonials great, but the pictures spoke for themselves. I contacted Paul and he replied straight away and popped round for a chat. He… Read more
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

Super happy! Tidy gardens did a really thorough job at sorting out our very overgrown and scruffy front garden. Paul is knowledgable and has a great work ethic. Couldn’t have asked for more and will definitely be using again.
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.
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.
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.
