Myself and my partner joined the "home owner" club almost three years ago now and like most first time buyers we bought a house that needs "doing up" to afford it. Since then we've gotten engaged and are due to be wed in August, but at the cost of the house improvements. When you have a leaking roof and a kitchen that doesn't even have a sink then the garden does get left behind. I'm sure if my fiancée hears "maybe after the wedding" one more time there may not be a wedding at all! Our garden has so much potential, and like most we've had a go with our limited knowledge and time but it never seems to make much difference, and having an outdoor space would help us so much for when we begin a family of our own.
