Due to health problems three years ago we had to take the heartbreaking decision to sell our beloved home where we had spent hours and hours developing our large garden into a place of beauty and move into a smaller new home. My wife and I had to stop work and rely on small pensions to survive. We decided that our new garden would have to be easier to maintain and started to work on it. Unfortunately I developed heart problems which stopped me from carrying out any heavy manual gardening and my wife was unable to assist due to her Rheumatoid Arthritis. We have had to stop any major plans we had and try to keep the garden tidy. The back garden is water logged for 75% of the year and stops us from enjoying the space as we would like. To win this prize would mean so much to us both and give us a massive mental boost.
