Hi, I have to face it , my backyard is ***. I have a dirty big hole that used to be an in ground pool .Fence falling down and my Houdini dog finds a way out no matter how many sleepers or bricks etc ,I put in her way. And my wood shed is disastrous .Mate one look at my backyard and you will say ***.... Anyway am taking the wife away in June for 50th birthday, its a Europe holiday we have had in the planning for 10 years.
What a great birthday surprise it would be if you guys appeared to fix what I cant. I am hopeless at building, you only need to see my makeshift fence to keep the dog in and you"ll see. Thinking along the lines deck over pool, with roof, for my outdoor kitchen which is 3 years old and still in boxes, would give the 5 grandchildren somewhere to play when they come over instead of throwing stones in my driveway for entertainment. New fence ,keep the dog in, and turn the dredded wood shed into a workshop, where I can use my many tools still unopened and out of warranty now after many years. Maybe then I could learn to use them...lol.
This is about giving my wife something shes never had, an entertaining area for her 50th birthday, I want it to be a surprise so when we arrive back home she walks into it
the tears would would all be worth it
HELLLLPPPPP:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Hi there. I was hoping to get some help for my ageing parents and their old tiny house. My dad has been disabled since I was about 5 due to a workplace accident. My mum is his full time carer. After raising 5 children and going through her own health issues my mum is struggling to keep up with the house work. The tiny house has way too much clutter and needs a serious make over. My dads medical problems have recently got worse and we dont know how much longer we have with him. We want to change a few things in the house to make it easier for my dad to get around. My mum really deserves a nicely renovated house after all these years of giving. I cant do this on my own... please help
Kind regards
a concerned daughter!

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 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!
