Landscaping in Reading

Landscaping in Reading. Landscaping project now completed.

I reckon it's best to show some before and after photos. I also have a movie before and after so you can judge for yourself how good are work had been.
We followed a vision of an owner who knew exactly what he wanted albeit not from the very start, which caused some problems along the way.
We at Tidy Gardens would stipulate on proper thorough plan before any work is carried out. We are happy to discuss, advise and suggest our best ideas that we think will meet your desires before we start the project.

For this garden, the owners first vision was to have a semi circle pathway running between two entrances to the garden, from either side of the house. Then a large lawn area in the middle and flower beds between newly created pathway and a fence. Owners idea evolved into a patio area and another line of flags to be added along the house. Ultimately the lawn area was closed inside a small ellipse.

There's still planting to be done, which the owner wants to do himself.

Without further ado..

Please have a look at the video showing the garden before this landscaping project

And the same video after landscaping has been done

Majority of landscaping work was done in the back garden, as shown on photos above. However, we have also been asked to shrink the front flower bed, therefore extend the driveway to accommodate 2 cars. It's been done using same paving blocks to match the existing driveway.

Here's what the driveway looks like after our landscaping work.

Let's not beat about the bush..

Was asked to refresh the area around the vegetable patches and come up with some planting ideas for two borders along the fence. Ultimately Low maintanance borders. Also to plant some bushes to provide some screening and be attractive as well.
