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??

Hi guys,

So I would like to nominate my Aunty Christine , 40, who lives in Narromine Nsw.

My Aunty has three lovely children; Byron who is 4, Brent who is 2 and Ruby who is nearly 1, this is my aunties sad story.

At around 3am On May 23rd 2013 my uncle Peter woke up with a jaw ache and he had went to the dentist the day before so he just took some panadol and went back to sleep then around 6 am that morning he was tossing and turning in bed so my Aunty Christine woke up to find my uncle foaming from the mouth little did she know he was in the middle of a heart attack.
She went and got the neighbours to come in and try and help whilst she was on the phone to the ambulance ,

It was too late though my uncle peter had passed away. we were all so devastated but my Aunty had to stay strong with Byron 3 and Brent nearly one. She also had to stay strong as she was pregnate with Ruby who would never get to meet her daddy,

Then later that year Christine was nearly due to have ruby but then bad luck struck,
Brent who was nearly one had been playing in the kitchen when my Aunty went outside and Brent grabbed the burning oil and poured it all on his face he was rushed to dubbo and put on life support then flown to westmead He had a number of viruses, third degree burns to his face and he had crashed twice

He was in hospital for two weeks and he just survived then a month later his baby sister ruby was born

I really think my Aunty needs a lot of renovations and she deserves it

She's widowed and her gorgeous children have no daddy

You would never know how much this would mean to her

Hi guys, I'd like to nominate my close friend Chanelle Farthing, she's 17 and her mother has had cancer for her (Chanelles) entire life. Her mum has recently been sent to sydney to live with family and Chanelle is now left having to look after her 3 bedroom, large backyard home all by herself.
The house is in good order but it needs an update, something Chanelle is trying to save for... She works at McDonald's full time and has recently deferred her event management course due to her mothers condition. She is the loveliest most kindest girl you could ever meet and for a 17 year old she has had a lot of things to deal with.

I would like to nominate her for a full house renovation, I know a lot of people and she above any of them deserves it most.. after all she's 17, and now living by herself having to deal with life and it's challenges on her own..

She lives on the Central Coast at Erina, please, this would change her world and let her see happiness in the kindness of others..
If I could get a response with a yes or no conclusion, that would be great..
thanks guys!

Sincerely,
Daniel Gaha

Hello, I am just wondering how I apply to enter for a backyard makeover. My yard looks a mess and we are overwhelmed in to how to make it a peaceful retreat for the family. I am a busy mother of 5, nan of 2. Work part time a a a nurse and studying midwifery at university so there is never time to work on the garden. I will dearly love to win a makeover and have a sanctuary to come home to after a hectic day at work or studying.
