Hi, my name is Kiara and I am 15 years old.

4years ago my sister, mum and I moved up from the beautiful Wollongong to the southern highlands to live with mums partner and his 2 step kids who live one week in and out of our house. In this time much has happened like one of my step sisters leaving hike due to mixed family and housing issues. Mum started full time Uni at home as she works part time at my sisters school as a learning support officer helping kids with disabilities. All she does is work, study, clean, cook, look after us kids and sleep. My step dad works from 6am to 7pm or later just so he can pay the bills. He barely had time to spend with us let alone do things around the house and yard. Because of our yard there have been arguments that have occurred. After all these years to me it still feels like I'm living in mums partners house, not my home. If you could come help fix out yard it will bring our family together as well as help out yard fiction better. Maybe out rabbits will have a proper place to live too ?

Thank you !

Hi, My name is James and my dad has a bad back injury. It happened it 2009 on the day of the Melbourne Cup, ever since then he has had 5 or 6 operations and been in hospital multiple times. I would love for our backyard to be renovated because it's lumpy, uneven, rock, hard and has holes. If I could renovate it on my own I would but I'm only 14 and have no money. I hope you can help my family and I.
Thanks James

Hi Jamie

I have a walking partner named Maria and she has just been diagnosed with an agressive brain cancer. I spent tie with her recently and asked her wish was to site out looking at a beautiful garden to enjoy. she is the kind of lady that is always helping others whether its cooking them a meal or giving children rides to sport, she is also aways the one to drop off meals when people are sick. She never complains and has the biggest heart for everyoone she s the most beautiful friend to me, and it breaks my heart to see her that. Hope you can help. We live in Perth, WA

I would be eternally grateful to have our backyard fixed up. We've had plumbing issues which caused part of the yard to be dug up by an excavator to lay down new pipes due to broken terracotta ones. Now the ground is uneven and unsafe for my 18 month old daughter to walk around on. It's also not child friendly because it has different levels, and she's not always steady on her feet. Therefore I don't take her outside anymore.

Hi, wish I could design and landscape for all of you worthy people in the comments. I'm a total amateur, but I LOVE this stuff. Wish it was still as popular as it was back in the 'noughties'.

Hello, I have a very good friend who was diagnosed with early onset dementia at 47 and his condition is deteriorating rapidly. This friend is a former Army officer and work colleague with a young family (two girls) that has to deal with watching their father (and husband) in recent years lose the ability to speak, followed by a loss of mobility and an inability to eat solid foods. These girls (and their mum) are absolutely amazing and stoic in the face of a terrible inevitability. They moved into a home in the Blue Mountains but the yard/garden is far too much for them to manage with everything they are going through, especially as my friend's wife has to work as well. This is an amazing and deserving family. Over to you...I hope

Hello i am writing to you in hope that you and your team can help my family. we have been living in our new house we just brought for about 5 months now and our front and back yard is all unlevelled and afew tonne of dirt left behind in our back yard that the builders wouldn't take away. I am a stay at home mum to our 3 year old son, who lives being outdoors and we would love a yard for him to play in instead of telling him he cant go out there due to it being dangerous and no side gate. My partner works night shift alot and has no time on his hands.
This year has been extremely hard losing my nana in February and my partners mum in march both to cancer. They were the two people we were very close to and that would help us alot and now we are also struggling financially, doesnt help that our deceased mums husband is trying to take every last bit of what she left us before she passed. I would love the opportunity to do something for my family that will brighten up our lives after a bad year. Thank you.

Hi, we have been living in our newly built house (not as new any more) for 16 years and still don't have a proper front yard or back yard. It is so embarrassing when people come over for the first time to see our 'ugly green' tin sheet fence and desert of a front yard (how I like to describe it). It is all dirt. I desperately need help doing it up please! My dad is getting older and has been unemployed for quite a few years now. I just really want our house to have a nice front yard.

Hi, my husband and I have just built a house on a 1600m2 block on a large slope. My husband works in the mines all week and works very long and hard hours to try and provide for our growing family. My husband and I just fostered 2 of our nieces and our nefew in the last year. We have twins of our own. All the 5 kids are under the age of 7, and I am finding it hard help my husband in doing anything outside while looking after all the kids. I really want to do something for my husband as he is a great inspiration to me, taking on 3 of my sisters kids, working long hours to provide for the family and still has the energy to help around the house. I just want to be able to relise the pressure of the back yard so we can concentrate on providing a safe and loving environment for the kids to exceed in life.

Hi I am writing in the hope you can help a family. Whilst they do not have any young dependant children anymore 2015 has been a bad year for them. One of them suffers chronic back pain which often affects her work. Her husband lost his job this year and whilst he has a temporary job now he has just found out that he needs extensive surgery in about 2 weeks for cancer whilst they have a lot of support of family and friends. Their house could definitely do with some love.
