We moved in our house 3 months ago. It was a dramatic move, after living in the previous house for 10 years and making a beautiful garden there, we left it to buy a house in a better area, close to our daughter's new secondary school.
The move caused a lot of emotional stress since we had to leave behind a lovely garden with cherry tree, fig tree, lots of berries: raspberry, loganberry, mulberry, red berry, lilac bushes.
There is still a lot of builders rubbish in the entrance of our garden, I'd like this to be cleared, so I can go out and enjoy a cup of tea in the sun. If I have a little bench on which to sit and enjoy my tea, I'd feel so good.
The new garden is long, overgrown with grass, there is a yew tree in the middle of it. We would love to make it tidier and nicer, a place where we can relax, we really need this after the long winter. Our kids: age 8 and 12 would love to have a play area in the garden.
My husband would like to have a pond where he can put the fish from our old garden. He has been under a lot of stress recently in his work and had no time to relax. He would appreciate to have a green house with shed where he'll grow herbs and vegetables. This will help him to relax, because he enjoys gardening.
We are really hoping to get some help in our garden makeover. I am from abroad, and I come from a sunnier place than UK. I suffer from not having enough sun and being out in the garden really helps me to fight my seasonal mood changes.
Thank you for reading my entry.
Kind regards,
Tanya Sandham
