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 ( 8×6′) 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.
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

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.

First Class Service! Paul was quick to respond to us. He did a first class job with his associate in cutting back trees and shrubs in our front and back gardens. Both gardens were left in a neat and tidy condition.
Paul is easy to work. I thoroughly recommend him.

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.
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
Liz & David Cook June 2021. Impressive! Thank you to Pavel and his team. Our garden looked awful before they arrived as we had removed lots of leylandii/fir trees and the ground was left with dozens of stumps, uneven ground and a rotten fence. This is where Pavel and his team came in and transformed the area – working very efficiently even in the extremely hot weather. He is punctual and polite and does what he promises to do, while also giving good advice re maintenance. Our new fence is very smart and looks l… Read more

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!
Reliable honest work !! I have used Paul’s professional services three times now for fencing, fence repairs and the laying of stepping stones.
I will be honest, I could have done all these jobs myself, but I simply value my free time to do other things.
I can only have Paul do these jobs for me because he is real value for money. His quotes are always honest and competitive.
He will always discuss your requirements and provide alternatives solutions if you want them.
He just turns up and gets on with the jo… Read more

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!!

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!
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
Tony June 2020. Impressive! Paul and his guys have all the right equipment and are reliable and efficient. I have lived with our very long hedge for over 40 years and it has never looked so good since Tidywork Gardens started maintaining it.
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.

Superb Job! Paul and Eddy worked tirelessly to transform the neglected jungle at the end of our garden into a fabulous landscaped area with new planters, a wooden retaining wall and a new base for our large garden shed. Highly recommended
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

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
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
