I am a single mum with an autistic 25 year old son. He wants to garden and I support him but we 'dabble' in our garden. For ever getting frustrated. We tried a veg plot but the cats used it as a toilet too much. We tried a pond but didn't dig the hole large enough so it's not level. James tries to look after his fish in the pond but it needs 'setting-up' and I haven't the time to do as I try and work and have a 95 year old mum too. We love to sit in the garden and have a lot of sun there to enjoy it. We also back on to 3 neighbours so the hedge is 'affected' by either LARGE trees or a shed or was cut too low for the rest. I don't know how to direct him. If it was manageable we could manage it but have astro for our dog we lost earlier this year, we have grass, soil, borders, hedge and... it's a mismatch and there is even a cat and guinea pig buried in the garden under the bark. We try especially as we enjoy our garden but really need a professional to help. There are people out there who are ill and would love a garden make over so do support them but if there is a 2nd prize we will remain here for a long time and will grow into our garden but would love to loose the frustration of not knowing what to do with ours. Help please. SORRY. Just seen you want us to advertise our garden. We don't have many friends. Autistics don't do social life and he hates crowds and strangers. :(
