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 renovation is pretty much possible in any case, but the important thing is – can you wait few months ?
If the answer to the above is no and there is a budget for it then why not call us ?
Two days of work have seen this front lawn totally changed. Edges have been defined, poor sandy soil improved with lots of compost – all that well rotovated and levelled, finally a new turf laid which, will now have the best conditions to show it’s colours. Mowing with such well executed edge will also be a breeze for the owner.
Last minute scarifying and overseeding in spring 2017
It’s the last call to do some scarifying and reseeding to improve your lawn. We have done it in this garden on top of some edging and turfing.
Please come back here to see more photos when grass starts to grow. It should not take more than two weeks in this weather. WATCH THIS SPACE !
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.
May - 2019. Mick Pollek Awesome effort. Excellent work with great attention to detail
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.
Paul and his colleague did a wonderful job clearing my jungle and making it look like a garden again!
They worked in the freezing cold to make this transformation and I am amazed at what they achieved. So, so grateful, and not a sign that they had needed to take all the cuttings through the house. A really fantastic job.
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.
Lower Earley, Reading, November 2013 After moving to a house that we bought recently, we did not realise initially how much work was needed in both front and the back garden. The border were full with spiky bushes and brambles, that were about 2 meter wide. Nothing could have been done till this was removed and reshaped. Good to find Paul, who understood our requirement and completed to good standard. Now I need new plantation and design for my garden, which I am quite confident that Paul can deliver… Thanks

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

Tree and bush pruned as requested on agreed day. Paul and his colleague were very courteous and left everything very tidy.
Great impact on my garden After I had neglected our large garden for several months, I hired TidyGardens to come and sort it out. They quickly made a great impact on the garden, cutting no corners. After a little over a day’s work I can now enjoy our garden again. I have asked TidyGardens to maintain the garden for me on an ongoing basis so I don’t let it get overgrown again.
Excellent work !!! Paul, Eddie and the lads are a really great team. We had a significant amount of work done in a short period. Their work rate was phenomenal. Precise work, tidy work, good communication, and a friendly team. Will be using again without a doubt.
Front garden renovation We had Paul last year to sort out our back garden after we moved to a new address as it was so overgrown. We were extremely pleased so he returned to renovate our front garden after we had finished the house refurbishment. Again Paul and his colleague Eddie worked tirelessly and after only a few days the garden was looking lovely and pristine, and easily manageable, just what we wanted. He has good ideas and again it is better than if we had done it ourselves without his input. We would defi… Read more
Does not need to improve Requested a garden tidy last week. Paul and his team arrived on time yesterday and within a day had transformed an overgrown garden to something presentable. Would highly recommend
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 🙂
Jo Marsh Absolutely fabulous. Paul and his colleague worked tirelessly on my very overgrown border, it looks amazing and I cannot recommend his service enough.

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.
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.
Lawn treatments March 2019
Paul scarified and treated my lawn at the beginning of March and he is now carrying out fortnightly grass cutting. The lawn is looking so much better. Thank you!
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
Tree Stump Removal I had a large tree stump in a really inaccessible raised area, full of other overgrown shrubs/brambles/general jungle. Paul agreed to do the work on a Saturday to suit my calendar, and worked like a Trojan for a number of hours until the stump was no more. He also did a couple of small stumps/large roots that were nearby while he was there. Great job, neat and tidy, and a nice guy to do business with, I can highly recommend him.
I see he also managed to update his website with a few pictures … Read more
Dolores Slobodian - June 2019 Hardworking and efficient job.
I hired Tidy Gardens to trim the very overgrown hedges and bushes in my garden. I’m very pleased with the work. Paul and colleague were punctual, polite and worked very hard to complete the job. They tidied up afterwards and I’m very happy with the result. My garden is looking lovely and I would definitely use them again.
