Planting in Reading - Maiden place

Over the weekend planting of raised beds at a commercial site in Reading


Two raised beds that needed soil in the first place and then a planting scheme.

We have included all low, beautifully flowering perennials for these two beds.


Let"s no judge yet. It needs some time to show it"s true colours ! Fingers crossed

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.
