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.

I never use to believe in spell casting until i met Great Baba a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person again. My name is Sarah Kelly and i reside in USA. After 3 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with three kids. I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Great Baba which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to bring back their Ex lover, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Amanda, she testified about how his spell made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Great Baba's email address. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work. When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Great Baba said. This is not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even happier now than before. Great Baba is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and a genuine spell caster to solve all your problems contact Great Baba now on Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com he will help you solve your problems. Once again thank you Great Baba for your good deeds.

Please incorporate a hills ROTARY clothes line in one of your backyards. I sit in front of the TV 'backyard' after 'backyard' and say "where's the clothes line"?.. the wifes getting sick of hearing me say it. Might take some creative thought, but hey, you are the right people for it. Thanks, David :)

hi my name is harry .. i would like to nominate a beautiful out going young couple that have worked really hard in the community sector to where they have come. they have just purchased a nice home which they have finished building ... and due to financial hardship they are unable to complete their front and back yard which is a eye sore for the rest of the neighbourhood the yard isn't that big but with a make over it would stand out
to be given this opportunity they would be very grateful
