We have what could be a fabulous garden space over 2 levels... it's just falling apart & unsafe for unsupervised kids... We have our 1st baby due in June and being lovers of the outdoors, BBQs, and having family over, we are now desperate to repair the crumbling areas and properly landscape the area with some colourful plantlife where our child will be able to play.
The steps from the house, dividing wall between the levels and old patio is so unstable we actually have to warn visitors bringing children... the bricks literally fall off and the 3 steps out the door aren't even cemented down! The back end and pathways are crumbling concrete, the lawn is full of weeds and even has a giant bare circle in the middle where there clearly used to be a tree.
We've been designing the space in our head since we moved in 2 years ago; but now with a little one coming it's horrid to know they won't be able to go outside unsupervised until we get it done. Imagine colourful bushes and flowers at the back covering the mismatched fence, a new patio with a BBQ, repaired brickwork with fencing so people won't fall off the upper level, and of course a kiddy corner with sandpit and slide! We would love to turn it into an outdoor paradise for our new family :)
