Over two days we have completed this returfing job in Tilehurst / Reading
Returfing around 80m2 but also flattening future lawn areas and creating two flower beds separated with some oak sleepers.
Today we visited this garden again to do some planting. Being a rented property we needed something easy yet still attractive.
Choice has been accepted and Lonicera Baggesen's gold have been supplied and planted by us. As these grows they will create a low,dense green carpet. No need for lots of hated weeding and very easy to trim too.
Latest news from Calcot ! Another garden there got a brand new lawn 🙂
What have we done ?
- Stripped old grass destroyed by builders. Yes they know how best to do it. And they don't even use a weed killer!
- Added 10m3 of compost. Oh yes we love compost so much. A quick whiff of fresh compost works better and longer than any coffee available in the UK 😉
- Rotovated using a perfectly suitable and powerful machine for it.
- Levelled, rolled and laid new turf.
- Watered !
- Broken up concrete, added soil and converted into another small lawn.
- Of course we've tidied up as well
Two day job completed with big thank you from a customer. Involved brick edging, levelling and turfing and a small ( 8x6') shed base construction.
- Around 400 paving blocks laid along the perimeter of the garden. Edging is very useful. See other posts about edging here
- 2.5m by 1.9m concrete shed base built.
- Lawn area levelled and 80m2 of premium turf laid
We left it like that. What do you think of it ? Let us know by writing a comment below.
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 !
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.
Fencing work in Woodley. May 2014 Paul and his team recently replaced the fencing in both my own and a couple of neighbouring gardens. the work was carried out efficiently with attention to detail and at a competitive price. They ensured that the entire garden was tidy before finishing. I would recommend them without hesitation.
Caversham garden clear up Garden Clearance
Paul worked very hard to clear an untidy garden – leaving me with a blank canvas to work from.
I live in a terrace house and rubbish had to brought through the property but Paul carefully laid down protective sheets) and left everything tidy. He is hardworking and helpful and I would recommend him.
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.
July 2018. One day major overhaul July 2018 – Paul and his team came for just one day to do a major overhaul in our large and very overgrown garden to prepare it for rental. They were extremely polite and efficient, and finished the whole front and back garden well within one day – it was an amazing transformation, they also took away all the green waste that was created that day. We were really impressed – so much so that we have asked him to quote for a fence renovation and even more clearance at the back of our garden. Many … Read more

May - 2019. Mick Pollek Awesome effort. Excellent work with great attention to detail
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.

We asked Paul of Tidy Gardens to carry our some lawn levelling and turfing work following construction of a new patio. All work was carried out in a professional but friendly manner and to our satisfaction. We are very pleased with the result and would recommend the team to other clients.
First class job! Really pleased! We would highly recommend Paul as we are so pleased with our front garden. He provided an efficient, knowledgeable and professional service where we were very happy with the end result and all at a very reasonable price! Thank you Paul
Margaret Paul made a lovely job of cutting our hedge. We found him reliable and tidy. He will be our first choice in all our garden work from now on.
Value for money Paul and Eddie spent a day clearing our very overgrown garden. They worked really hard for a good price and now I can see our flower beds again and can start planting them with proper plants rather than watch brambles and ivy take over the space.
They also left the garden really tidy, which I appreciated. Have already asked Paul to quote for another job.
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.
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.

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.
May 2019. End of tenancy tidy up. May 2019

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
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! 🙂
