My rear garden needs a make over because it really is a total mess. The grass has all gone, leaving just a mud surface, which Ivy has now colonised and taken over. In winter time we are actually grateful for a hard frost as it makes walking on the back garden tolerable as you do not sink into the thick mud. There is currently no way we can sit and enjoy our rear garden as both myself and my wife are disabled with various health complaints and so we cannot do anything at all to improve the garden as it would be far too much work for us to carry out as well as too expensive and far beyond our means. We would love a bench or some form of seating so we could sit outside on nice days but as the rear garden is east facing it really only gets direct sun up till around noon or 2 pm before the sun disappears over the roof top. We did plant our very first "live" Christmas tree in our rear garden, when we first moved here in 1996, but sadly that has now died (we think the neighbours killed it when they had some tree people in lopping off over hanging branches- even though they were high up) and that remnant of our poor dead fir tree is left still standing- at one time it produced beautiful fir cones, but sadly no more, though the wild birds we attract to our garden still use it to survey the area for hidden dangers (cats mostly) before descending for food from our bird table. It would mean the world to my wife and myself to have a nice looking rear garden area again that we could sit in and enjoy.
