I have 3 children on the autistic spectrum. My middle son is also physically disabled. The concreting directly outside of our back door is so bad that it hurts his feet to walk on it when he comes indoors. (It looks like it has been dumped there as leftovers from building rather than planned, as it doesn't match and is stony/patchy/cracked.)

We have lived in our home coming up for 10 years. The garden is large. Every year I say 'I'd like to sort out the garden this year' but with hospital appointments, school appointments, work and general life, I never quite get the time.

The lawn is lumpy where the previous residents let the grass grow over flower beds, so it is hard to mow and needs to be flatter. Our neighbours seem to cut their grass quickly yet ours takes hours.

We have no flowerbeds or plants - just grass and 2 trees. The grass cutting is a hard job.

I would love to have the concrete removed and a flat patio put in so that my son can walk out to play easier and we can have an area to put our table and chairs. I would also love a flatter, easier lawn to mow and less grass.

My garden isn't overgrown but it is in need of some help.
