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.
April 2017. Excellent Service
Many thanks Pawel for an excellent service cutting back and tidying bushes at the front and rear of our property. He turned up when booked, tidied up, took all the waste away for a very reasonable price.
We have been so impressed that we have now booked Pawel for further work.
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.
January 2017. Fantastic make-over
We needed both the front and back garden to be made ready for a house sale. Tidy Gardens fulfilled my brief and more, adding extra tidying without being asked. Flower beds were dug over and weeded, and even pots ( with no plants) were cleaned, the AstroTurf swept, shrubs were trimmed and an obsolete tree removed. We couldn't have asked for a better job and in the rain too. Both gardens look fantastic. Highly, highly recommended.
Paul did a very good job clearing an overgrown garden for my father. He worked around all the plants and shrubs so they could grow again and also ground some tree stumps to free up new space. Most recently, he planted a new hedge - he came up with lots of ideas and then sorted out what we wanted. I'd thoroughly recommend him. Judith
Refreshed Pathways and Borders
Paul, together with his equally hard working friend, replaced our pathways and borders (as seen in 'Lets not beat about the bush'.
They worked very hard and I was extremely pleased with the result.
I waited to write my review because I wanted to see what would transpire throughout the different seasons with regards to the plants.
The borders have filled out nicely and the pathways still look new.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul and would happily call on him again for any further work.
Tree Stump Removal
I had a large tree stump in a really inaccessible raised area, full of other overgrown shrubs/brambles/general jungle. Paul agreed to do the work on a Saturday to suit my calendar, and worked like a Trojan for a number of hours until the stump was no more. He also did a couple of small stumps/large roots that were nearby while he was there. Great job, neat and tidy, and a nice guy to do business with, I can highly recommend him.
I see he also managed to update his website with a few pictures (which don't do justice to the size of the stump, by the way) before I could even leave comment myself, which typifies his approach to getting things done.

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.
Great impact on my garden
After I had neglected our large garden for several months, I hired TidyGardens to come and sort it out. They quickly made a great impact on the garden, cutting no corners. After a little over a day's work I can now enjoy our garden again. I have asked TidyGardens to maintain the garden for me on an ongoing basis so I don't let it get overgrown again.
A Reliable Professional Service
Grounds maintenance service in Reading - July 2016 review
This company has worked alongside ours in delivering an exceptional Grounds Maintenance service in difficult circumstances on a housing estate in Reading. Over a period of a year the team have systematically improved the environment by making suggestions to our client and fulfilling them when approved.
They have regularly and efficiently attended the site and took ownership of their work whilst building a relationship with the key personnel involved.
I would like to thank them for their continued efforts and express our gratitude and look forward to continuing the working relationship in the future.
Gould Landscapes Ltd
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.
Excellent work !!!
Paul, Eddie and the lads are a really great team. We had a significant amount of work done in a short period. Their work rate was phenomenal. Precise work, tidy work, good communication, and a friendly team. Will be using again without a doubt.
Tree fell and stump removed
Very efficient and tidy work at a good price.
Paul and his colleague attended within the time stated to fell a tree that was beginning to interfere with my nieighbours house. They even grounded out the stump so the ground was levelled off.
All arisings were cleared away to leave the garden clean and tidy.
Job was done so quickly and well that they also picked up some work from my neighbour too.
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
Great Job - Very good price for the hard work!
Paul came to give us a quote to clear and tidy up our garden. I could see that even through our messy garden, he could name the plants (invaded by the weeds!), but he could also tell us about various weeds, and what needed to be done (other gardeners did not have that approach unfortunately - showing your knowledge is key and this is the reason he got the job).
The garden is looking like I never seen it before. The house is ready to go on the market! Thank you Paul!
Paul and his team were recommended to me and I am so pleased that I contacted him. We talked through all that I wanted and he made a few suggestions as well which was appreciated. We agreed a price on the spot and arranged a day for the work to be done. Paul arrived on time and started work straight away. We had a few trees removed , bushes and trees shaped , lawn cut and driveway weeds treated. All the rubbish was taken away . He did a great job and I would recommend him to everyone . He is honest and hard-working and gives a great service from quotation to completion. It is a relief to find a gardener who actually knows about plants.
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 contact him again for any further work. Thanks Paul.
Tidy Gardens - Reading
front lawn landscaped. April 2006
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.
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 job.
I have always been happy with the results and I will continue to use his services.
Paul & team did a great job doing a new tenancy clean up (thorough clean, carpet/curtain wash & garden tidy) for a house we're letting out in quick time & at a good price.
Paul also did a tidy up of our own garden in no time at all. Now we've found someone local who's pleasant,polite, professional & reliable, we won't be going elsewhere!
Unusual garden service
Paul provides an unusual service - he knows what he's doing! He can identify and name most plants, especially the difference between weeds and perennials unlike several of his competitors in the area.
Added to that knowledge Paul and Radek provided a good service and created a very tidy garden in a few hours. Recommended.
Great service and good prices
Paul and team did a great job in tidying the garden at our new house - cleared overgrown borders, removed ivy and vine from fences etc - we can now see the wood for the trees so to speak! They removed all waste and left garden looking a great deal better. Most companies didn't even bother to reply to inquiries, Tidy Gardens was the only one who could do the work in a reasonable timescale. Will definitely use again.
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 recommend Tidy Gardens to anyone wanting garden work, no matter how complicated.
My garden has been transformed to it's former glory thanks to Paul and Co. I can't believe what he did in such a short space of time. They left the garden spotless, I thought I might have had to rake up a few leaves at least. Many thanks and hope to see you again soon.
Great Job, 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!
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
Garden work / Reading - review
I would highly recommend TIdy Gardens for your gardening jobs. Paul provided a quote and carried out the work in an excellent manner. Tidy Gardens lives up to its name as there was no evidence of Paul being here apart from a super tidy garden. Our garden waste had to be carried through the house and there wasn't a leaf or a speck of soil around when I got home. Also Paul didn't just do what he quoted for. He went the extra mile. Look no further for your garden needs. Amanda Adkins
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.
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.
Reliable, Knowledgable and Exceeded Expectations
Paul transformed my very overgrown garden into a manageable and welcoming environment. He along with his co-workers were exceptionally hard working, pleasant and knowledgeable, offering good advice to me. The work was completed to a high standard with rubbish removed and pavements washed. I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Tidy Gardens who were also very price competitive. Thank you for all your hard work!
Excellent experienced people.
Phoned Paul to quote for cutting a large conifer hedge in my daughters garden, he arrived on time and quoted a very fair price so we agreed a day to do the work. On the day he was prompt and set to work straight away and didn't really stop for about 4 hours!! Everything was cleared away and he even used a blower on the lawn to remove the last pieces! Excellent bloke and would certainly use him again. Highly recommended.
buddleia cut back
Paul came very promptly to quote for chopping our enormous budliea. His quote was very reasonable and he returned next day to carry out the work. Very professional, gave sound advice about other plants in the garden, did a great job and took all rubbish away. Also cleaned up very thoroughly afterwards. I would gladly have him back for more work and recommend him to friends. Thanks Paul!
Hedge well done
Called Pawel who was quite flexible in terms of timings. Worked to my convenience.
Wanted them to tidy up a messy big hedge. Did a very neat job and delivered everything as promised. Pricing was very reasonable too.
I recommend him for similar jobs.
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! 🙂

Garden cut back and tidy
We moved into our property last year and the garden needed some immediate attention. We started doing it ourselves but it soon became apparent that it needed some professional attention. I started looked around for local trustworthy gardeners and as soon as I saw Paul's website I knew he would be the company I wanted to use. Not only were the already submitted testimonials great, but the pictures spoke for themselves. I contacted Paul and he replied straight away and popped round for a chat. He came out with some great suggestions and we agreed to go ahead. When I came home after the work had finished I was absolutely amazed. I was expecting a cut back and tidy but the job he did was brilliant. Not only did he do the job agreed, but he did so much more. We are now using Paul for regular maintenance to keep on top of the garden. I highly recommend Paul. No more to be said really 🙂
5 Star Service. September 2014
I am absolutely delighted with Tidy Gardens. Paul provided a fast, efficient and reasonably priced service. I would highly recommend Tidy Gardens and will be sure to call again when needed!
Garden Tidy Up in Woodley. August 2014
I contacted Paul as my garden needed a good clean up. He was very efficient in responding to my emails, coming round to cost out the work and in getting the job done.
I would use Paul again and recommend him to anyone and everyone.
Caversham garden clear up
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.
Garden Tidy up
Paul did a great job clearing my garden which had been neglected for nearly six months and was heavily overgrown with bamboo & ivy. He arrived on time, work was done exactly as discussed and I'm really pleased with the result.

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
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.

Many thanks for a job well done and a fast reply sent a text on Sunday and job done on Monday afternoon thank you.
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.
Hedge trimming, May 2014
Paul was able to give us a competitive quote and complete the work shortly afterwards. I was delighted to come home to see the garden looking so much better and all the waste taken away.
Excellent fencing, carefully installed
Tidy Gardens replaced about 10 fencing panels that had suffered in the recent storms. The new panels were of a high quality and were installed with great care and attention to detail. Paul and his staff were meticulous in tidying up afterwards, leaving the lawn spotless. My neighbour and I are delighted with our new fence and pleased that we chose Tidy Gardens to fit it for us.
Personable and professional, April 2014
Excellent work at a competitive price.
Listened to what I needed doing and added his professional knowledge to make sure my Trees were not damaged. Friendly and quick. I would certainly recommend.
Garden Tidy Up
Paul did an excellent job of giving our garden a good tidy up front, back and side! He came out on a Thursday and completed the work the following Tuesday. His work was beyond expectations and I would definitely recommend him.
Vacancy Clear Up
I hired Paul to provide an end of tenancy clear up of a back garden. His work and guidance were superb - the garden was transformed and all garden refuse removed. His quote was competitive and he worked hard to complete the job. More than happy to recommend him.
Fast, impressive and affordable
We had a laurel hedge which had grown out of control, over the two years we had been in our house. Paul contacted me on a Sunday afternoon and had the job done by 11 o'clock the next day. The job was completed to a high standard, with all the waste cleaned up and disposed of (there was a lot). Paul beat every other quote I had been given by a considerable amount and there was no compromise on the standard of work. I will use his services again and I will recommend without hesitation.
Excellent quality, efficient and conciencous
TidyGardens came in to fell 5 mid sized conifers, install a section of high quality trellis (supplied by them), and to do a general clean up and tidy of what was a quite messy front and back garden that we inherited from the previous owners.
The work was carried out very quickly, to a very high standard, and always in consultation with us, to ensure that we were happy as the work progressed.
All in all, I can highly recommend TG; they are very hard working, conscientious and very keen to ensure that the work meets to the customer's expectations. And all this with relatively reasonable charges.
Excellent all round service; will certainly by using them again.
Alison, Reading, December 2013
My garden was in need of a lot of TLC.
I contacted Paul who arrived straight away and gave me a quote.
He arrived at the weekend in the rain and did a fantastic job of clearing weeds, cutting down dead trees, pruning roses, cutting back ivy and much more.
He completed the job, even e-mailed me with ideas of what to plant in the space I now had.
I would definitely recommend Paul. Thank you very much.
Mr Sikka, Reading, December 2013
My garden was a mess and I was trying to find someone who could not only help but also guide me to keep it in good shape. After looking around a lot and not finding the right person, I came across Tidy Gardens website and met Paul.
All I can say is that I couldn't have asked for a better person. Not only Paul did a fantastic job of cleaning the garden but also gave it a good shape and came up with fantastic suggestions that I couldn't even think off.
And it doesn't even end there. During the last storm, one of the trees fell over and one call to Paul, it was sorted. He came over immediately in high wind and heavy rain and cut the tree off before it could do any more damage and sorted the whole mess. He made sure that the tree didn't break any fences by taking it down immediately from the fences it had fallen over.
Paul is very flexible and will come around even when we are not at home and complete the job he started. All i can say is, fantastic job done at reasonable price. Don't think will look for any one else after working with Paul
Parm, Reading, December 2013
Thanks Paul for the quick follow up to provide a quote for graden work in Lower Earley. Fast and reliable service, will definitely use again in the future for regular gardening services.
Chris, Bracknell, December 2013, Tidy up
Good, honest very hard working guy. Did a great tidy up of my garden in Bracknell. Now I can enjoy the view from my window over the Christmas holidays.
Stef, Twyford, December 2013
Paul did an excellent and speedy garden tidy up! He was punctual, polite and hardworking.
The lawn was beautifully cut and the borders
resurfaced once weeded. What a relief.
Our fallen tree and garden rubbish was taken away.
I would certainly recommend his services.
Faye Thomas, Earley, Reading, November 2013 - Thanks!
I contacted Paul to arrange removal of a large section of ivy from the front of our house and trim back the remaining section. It was a short notice job as we had some work starting in a few days which needed the ivy taming!
Paul was friendly and professional and arranged to do the job on a Saturday morning to ensure our work could start on time. The ivy looks great. Paul tidied everything up and our house has been left with much more 'kerb appeal'!
I wouldn't hesitate to use Paul again and recommend him to others.
Mr Kumar, Lower Earley, Reading, November 2013 - garden clearance
After moving to a house that we bought recently, we did not realise initially how much work was needed in both front and the back garden. The border were full with spiky bushes and brambles, that were about 2 meter wide. Nothing could have been done till this was removed and reshaped. Good to find Paul, who understood our requirement and completed to good standard. Now I need new plantation and design for my garden, which I am quite confident that Paul can deliver... Thanks
Carly, Caversham, Reading, November 2013
Our little jungle had the local cats pretending to be tigers in the long grass but Paul managed to address this in a jiffy! He is punctual and professional- a pleasure to have around I can't recommend him enough!
Pam, Lower Earley, Reading, October 2013 - maintenance
I can relax a little, now Paul is helping me to keep my Garden tidy and hopefully improve its quality. Not an easy challenge! Thank you Paul. Pam in Lower Earley
Jay, Caversham Heights, Reading, October 2013
Thanks to Tidy Gardens for the excellent job Paul did on our garden. We moved into a new house in September & the garden was a complete jungle, Paul came & cleared everything out, cut down trees, bushes and cleared the mess. He worked really really hard, was punctual, very polite & cheerfull. He left the place immaculate & filled us with confidence throughout. All in all I couldn't be happier with the service that Tidy gardens provided. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul - extremely helpful and totally reliable in suggesting great ideas and being very knowledgeable. Paul did a brilliant job of clearing a small jungle both promptly and efficiently... Thanks Paul.
Jay, Caversham Heights, Reading, October 2013
Sue, Farley Hill, October 2013
Paul responded very quickly to my enquiry, and was able to carry out the work straightaway. Our very large lawns were cut perfectly, and all the edges were strimmed and left neat and tidy. Pawel was very polite and courteous. We will certainly be recommending him, and using his services again.
Sue, Farley Hill, October 2013
Mrs. L. Shinfield, September 2013
Paul has been reshaping and clearing my garden borders which has involved removing ivy from a wall, digging up some small trees, taming the climbing plants and clearing and turning over the soil in order to plant or relocate new shrubs. I can now see the small garden path which had been covered in weeds for years! The shrubs now have a chance to thrive and survive the winter. Throughout, he has been industrious and thorough in tackling each of the problem areas. He is also knowledgeable about plants and willing to offer advice when asked. He has done a brilliant job in a short time and at an affordable price.
I am delighted with the result and will certainly employ him again to keep my garden in order. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any similar household garden jobs.
Mrs. L. Shinfield, September 2013
Jill C. Ascot, August 2013
I have been very pleased with the work undertaken by Paul. It is a relief to finally find a gardener who is diligent, committed & reliable.
Paul always turns up when expected and just gets on with the job in hand. It is important that you discuss your needs & requirements with Paul ideally ahead of his visit so that he is able to work without any delay.
Also this makes sure that you understand how much the work will cost and how long it will take.
Paul is very knowledgeable regarding plants & trees but if you have specific wishes then I would suggest you make sure Paul has your specific instructions.
I am very happy with Paul's garden services.
Jill C. Ascot, August 2013
Pauline O. Tilehurst, August 2013
Just to confirm that we employed gardener - Paul to do some work for us a while ago. The garden was
quite overgrown and unkempt.
This is to confirm that he was hardworking, did a good tidy job, and worked longer than was arranged in order to get the job done to our satisfaction. Would have no quarms about recommending him to anyone else.
Pauline O. Tilehurst, August 2013
