Huge congratulations to Megan Rees from Oxford who entered the competition hoping to change the life of her three year old daughter Ariella.
Ariella has severe disabilities, she was given a 10% chance of survival at birth and has beaten the odds. Her parents have had to give up work to provide round the clock care for her as her needs are so complex.
Ariella currently has nowhere safe to play outside and can’t even go to the park as it is too risky for her.
We are very excited to begin the transformation and give Ariella beautiful garden to play in. Watch this space!
Welcome to MyBuilder

I have recently moved to Taunton to be nearer my family. One of my daughters has 3 boys, the youngest who is now 4, is autistic, non verbal and has sensory processing disorder. I have taken over a 2 bedroomed Victorian terraced house that has been untouched since the 1980's and is currently ongoing a transformation which I am undertaking myself with help from various tradesmen I have sourced through MyBuilder. The garden has been very neglected over the years, and although it is small I very much want to turn it into a sensory garden for my grandson to enjoy, along with the rest of the family.
I have made a start by removing the ugly overgrown shelter and old shed (see photo) and am replacing this with a little summerhouse. This is as far as I have got. I'm not really sure where to start, and I really need help with careful design for this small space and specific type of garden and choice of plants etc.
As I was doing some research the email arrived from MyBuilder about this garden competition, and so I thought I would have a go. Nothing ventured nothing gained. It would be so wonderful to have some input from people who actually know what they are doing to create this special garden for a very special child to enjoy with his brothers and cousins.
