our garden was a dump when we moved in, and i was so sad as it was our 1st place with a garden. both the front and the back need so much work done and as a single mum of 5 i just cant afford it. i go and have a try to make it abit better for the kids to play out in it but i just dont seem to be getting anywhere. then i try saving to get a proper gardener round to sort it out but as its such a state the quotes i`ve had are quite high for me and i try and save but theres always school trips, school uniforms, shoes, clothes etc that need to be bought. the kids cant go out at all at the min as we have foxes living in the bushes and trees and after all the news about foxes attacking im scared to even let my kids go out there just incase. i would love to sort the garden out for the kids as we have neighbours who moan at them when they play out the front for being too noisy or kicking the ball near their gardens and my sons love playing football but at the min they cant as theres nowhere to do it. people say that these days kids are to busy playing computer to play outside andget fresh air but mine dont have the choice of going in the garden to play. i really have my fingers crossed for this comp as it would be a dream come true to have the money to get my garden sorted for them
