Repotting experience at the University

I have been called yesterday by a guy from University of Reading who is a weed scientist doing some research.



Asked me for help in repotting about 200 beautiful weeds.



And there I was at the Uni repotting hundreds of my favourite weeds.. Before a killer now a saviour ;-)



rumex crispus &



rumex obtusifolius









Not sure if I’d like to repeat that experience ;)

Lawn aeration - is it worth it ?

Lawn aeration.. do you want a better looking lawn ?


We have aerated and top dressed about 300m2 of 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.

Recommendation !

I just wanted to recommend Paul as a gardener. I met him for the first time this week , I wanted a local gardener. He is so polite , pleasant and happy to please. He left the garden very tidy and neat after completing the weeding and trimming.

I also have asked him to return to do some fencing for me ,I would thoroughly recommend Paul to any body.



Recommendation !

Very good and reliable service

I’m very happy to recommend Paul. He was very smooth and quick, after I phoned him initially, he came around 2 days after to have a look on the work to be carried out, and he gave me a quote on the following day.

I’m very happy with the results, it was a complex task, by first clearing a jungle and landscaping, and 2nd round was surface evening and turfing. I’m amazed by the results I got for my money. No doubt I will call him again if new tasks come up.
