Our new garden plans are now on hold for a year, due to a spinal accident. I would love to put a smile on my husbands face and renovate our dusty sandpit of a garden. Any help would be a godsend. Xx

I've never ever won anything in my life and definitely can't imagine you'd be remotely interested in my garden but my hubby and 3 boys and I have just moved into the Dunes at Medowie, NSW, gorgeous part of the world. Our garden is useless space, boring as and depressing really. HELP PLEASE!!! Would love some inspiration, go with it as you please, would LOVE you to come and do something with it. Jackie Hays xxx

My daughter has 5 children, a loving husband who is best kept out of diy shops, and has had Crohn's disease for the last 15 years. She works at the local church part-time, is an avid home maker and bakes for her family and others, and has helped out church members on many occasions. She has two beautiful daughters and three very handsome sons, one of whom has lactose intolerance and the other two are on the autism scale. She has set up and run for some years, a playgroup and support group for families dealing with autism, and has since handed over its running to others to continue. She also has had problems with epilepsy during her pregnancies.
Their current house has four bedrooms, and is fine in that regard, but only has one bathroom and toilet. They enquired about extending at one time, but were unable to afford the work to be done. A person with Crohn's and a child easily getting upset tummy from accidental ingestion of lactose really need more than one toilet at least. Is there any chance that your team would be able to help them to achieve this? Please?

Dear Backyard Blitz, I work at Nathalia Community Early Learning Centre. We are a new childcare centre in a small rural community with a strong Indigenous and farming heritage. Our centre prides itself with its wonderful dedicated staff and beautiful children. Our building is new but our yard area is becoming such a problem. Large amounts of rain, drainage issues and lack of resources has turned our yard into a mud pit and it has become an eye sore. The children are trudging through mud, the chicken coop is smelly and even the puddles are beginning to smell. We only dream of a yard that is beautiful and inviting for the children. I have photos I could send you just so you can see how much of a problem it has become. Please help us Back Yard Blitz, you may be the angels we have been waiting for!!!

Hi Backyard Blitz crew,

After 3 long hard stressful years I have finally built & moved into our dream home in a gorgeous coastal town in northern nsw. I have faced much adversity along the way but as a single working mum i'm always driven to provide my kids with the home they deserve to have. What is missing though are gorgeous gardens to match our dream home. We have a blank sandy canvas that we would love if you could help fast track our dream (by about 10 years) to completion! Thanks guys.

Dear Backyard Blitz,
I have a family of 8 and it is 2 families combined. We just got a new house and don't have a back or front garden. On my side of the family my parents got divorced and left each other. I live with my mum and see my Dad occasionally. On the other side of my family, the kids mum has passed away from breast cancer. My mum also had breast cancer but made it and her and my step families Dad became friends and now we all live together. I have a mum, 1 stepdad along with 2 brothers and 3 sisters. My mum and stepdad work full-time and it is very hard to take care of 6 kids and to build a new garden. My mum works at an Autistic school and looks after lots of kids and also us. She wants to have tropical plants as it gets cold in Melbourne.

I am a 48 year old stepdad married with two teenage children from south america,after many years of struggling my wife and I managed to get together the deposit for a modest home in Hebersham NSW, I have done a lot of work on the property myself,but with regards to the landscaping it is out of my depth and price range. If you are looking for a challenge then this would be it, and most certainly any help would be most appreciated.

Regards, Michael
