I inherited a ghastly paved and gravelled 2 tier back garden when I moved here last may. It also has some wooden raised beds, the wooden content of which is not only rotten and falling apart but also a very dark brown in colour. The whole thing is a dark and depressing sight out of my kitchen window. It should be a colourful haven of peace and tranquility. I had great ambitions of what to do with the space to make it beautiful, and started by demolishing some rotten picket fencing and lifting the "beautiful" yellow and pink slabs. Unfortunately in October I then had a fall and sustained serious fractures to the tib and fib in my left leg. 6 months later I have a leg full of metal plates and screws, and a garden which desperately needs completing. If I won this wonderful competition it would greatly improve the quality of my home life, as I adore pottering around outsude. In its current state it is unsightly and dangerous , and I just dont like going out there.
