My garden wasn't a garden when I moved in 7 years ago, a 90 year old man had lived here for 50 years... the garden unattended in his later life. Everything I improve something in the garden something else goes awry, so there's decking to replace a summer house that was rotten and falling down, the concrete steps to the top were too steep and ugly so they've been curved and made less steep but the dog uses them more than we do. My garden is unusually steep and uneven and really doesn't look that much better than when I began but not through wAnt of trying. Can't afford landscapers or I most certainly would get the professionals in.
£1000 would build me a fence upto 6ft 6 on top of my breaking old stone wall at the back. This will stop the dog escaping and make us feel less exposed to a public bridle footpath. My daughters and my whole family like using the garden but we just can't get on top of it. I don't have a budget for it so any winning if any prize to allow for me to make headway would be fab.
I'm being made redundant in January after 27 years and may need to let the house out until I can find a new job. The garden looking improved would certainly make that happen quicker.
Thank you for listening.
