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.

Garden-Tidy-up-difficult-access

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.

September 2017. 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.

Fantastic service from Tidy Gardens

The Tidy Gardens/DGL team did a first class landscaping job for us. Edward worked incredibly hard throughout and Paul"s project management, attention to detail and design were really valuable, even when the scope of the project changed part way through.

I highly recommend them and will not hesitate to use them again for other garden projects in future!

Brambles - garden tidy up

A garden in Twyford cleared of brambles.


Is your garden looking like this ?

It"s a field of brambles / blackberries. Garden left for a couple of years and needed some help.



Half way through.. Half of garden cleared roughly.



And finally the end result.

Blackberry roots have not been uprooted on this occasion. So many of them and soil is quite rocky so rotovating is also not a best idea. Plan is to poison all new growth as soon as it regrows.

June 2017. Absolutely fantastic gardener

I live in central Reading and needed trees removing, bushes removing, and other bits.

The guys did a fantastic job. They not only did exactly what I wanted but went further - they hauled out bits of cement and took away extra stuff that I hadn"t realised I would need removing.

They turned up on time, laid sheets everywhere to prevent a mess through the house, and worked non-stop.

Will use them again and recommend them to my friends and neighbours. Absolutely brilliant.

Many thanks.

Lawn returfing - Reading

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

May 2017. Hard work and expertise

My garden had become quite overgrown and I was looking for a gardening team who have all the powertools, and can take the waste away, and who also know their plants. Paul and team were the only ones I found who could do this and they did a wonderful job. My paths have been cleaned, stumps ground, borders cleared of weeds and ivy and everything has been pruned. Paul had some excellent ideas for other things we could do to improve the garden which I am sure I will take him up on very soon.

March 2017. Garden clearance and regular maintenance

I discovered Paul only through his website and the many wonderful testimonials he has. Paul and his colleague came by to our house for a full garden clearance. We have a very large garden (front and back), and they worked tirelessly for over 5 hours. The garden is now beautiful, clean and tidy! Paul also seems to have extensive knowledge about plants, which is great! We have now booked Paul for our regular garden maintenance as well 🙂

Garden Makeover - March 2017

My garden has resemble a wasteland for several years. Paul and Eddie started work on it early on Monday morning and by Saturday afternoon they had transformed it into a lawn, neatly edged with brick paving, with a flower bed at the rear ready for new plants. They carried on working through terrible weather and left everything clean and tidy when they"d finished.

They are reliable, helpful, hard working and very polite and I can highly recommend them. I have already asked Paul to do more gardening work for me.

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 🙂

January 2017. Good Job, well done.

Paul and his colleague had their work cut out with our very overgrown garden. Turning up promptly at the time they said they would, they cracked on and very soon had cleared the ivy, brambles and nettles that had taken over. They also trimmed two mature and large hedges as well as mature shrubs and gave the patio area a very thorough weed and clean. All the waste was swept up and taken away. I could not have asked for any more from them – Thank you both very much.
