I guys I've been a carer for 30 years for my Aunt who passed away last year, my intellectually handicapped brother 24 who sadly passed away 4 years and to my step father 56 who died in April this year. I moved my mum who is 67 who is palliative dialysis 3 days a week, riddled with osteo and rheumatoid arthritis weak heart , lung condition, bed bound into our home so we can close to her look after and make her comfortable. We never have time to enjoy our backyard and I want to have several get together parties for my mum and my backyard looks outdated. So I hope you respond

6 months ago I married my husband, and construction had commenced on our house. Two days after our wedding, my hubby was hospitalized, his kidney transplant of 9 yrs was going into rejection, before the end of that week his employer told him he no longer had a job and recommended the disability pension,,,nice hey! Prognosis isnt good and we will need to find him another kidney in the not to long distant future. Less than a month ago we moved into our house, hubby has been in and out of hospital for the last 6 months, fortunately I am working, but there is no way we can afford to do anything to the backyard as I dont earn alot. If backyard blits could help us stop the shift sands of the Sahara from moving around our backyard, not only would be we so appreciative, but it would take some of the pressure away from us

I have a friend I did nursing with in the 70's, she is nearly 84 years old and has been nursing her whole life and still is - full time. She has 5 children, 25 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren and has dedicated her entire life to others, for nothing, not once receiving the praise, support and thanks that she deserves. Wow 83 1/2yrs old and still nursing. She has done stuff to her cramped front and back yard, but I feel she is deserving of this.

Hi, We are an older couple who has bad health and cant do up the back yard. I would appreciate any help that I can get as my husband has terminal cancer and I have had 8 strokes. Its a blank canvas at the moment needing plenty of attention. We live in Dandenong, Victoria

Hi guys - The kids would love a backyard where they are actually excited to run out to! At the moment its a stark graveyard of weeds. The kids pick soursobs for me, and present them in a jam jar LOL! Poor things :( My young daughter has an Intellectual Disability and would really benefit from a fun sensory backyard filled with interesting textures and plants (and room for a trampoline). How cool would that be!

Hi Blitzers, we're a young family starting out in the property market with quite a tricky backyard to landscape. In the time we've been here we've managed to remove the jungle of weeds and make small logistical and aesthetic improvements to the backyard... However there are some issues that we would dearly love some assistance with, the dog is a climber and subsequently a wanderer so we need to improve the fence, the yard is quite slopy so we need to make it safer for the kids as well as more accessible and functional as a whole. We'd love it to be more Eco friendly and put a grey water system and rainwater tank in place. I would very much like to surprise my man with a man shed as he deserves it! I imagine it could be quite a nice yard given some structured TLC, difficult to know where to begin. And finally we would of-course like to improve the value of the property, any chance you want to take on this tricky task with us??
