We are the only home in our street that still have no front yard or back yard. It would be such an amazing experience to have such talented artists create an inviting front yard and an entertaining and playful back yard for our children. It would be great to surprise my hubby when he goes away for work in September November and return to such a lovely surprise.

Hi guys, firstly I would like to say how much I love your show! Your team is so inspirational in helping people or communities in need and your work is amazing.
I know there are so many deserving people but I was hoping you could consider myself and my family for a backyard makeover too (or even just some advise)?
I was diagnosed with MS just before my 30th birthday and even though I can go about day to day tasks, I still get extremely tired and don't have the energy to attend to our courtyard. We have two toddlers (after a very stressful few years of miscarriages and IVF) and a puppy and an extremely underutilised courtyard. My husband tries his hardest to keep the space neat and clean, but it is not inviting and we don't know how to fix it. The puppy constantly kills the grass by weeing on it and we don't have the foresight to figure out how to make the space inviting and somewhere we are proud to have friends over, or just a fun and practical place for the kids to play in. We really need your help! thank you for considering us. Kylie

Hello my mum is 82 years of age, each morning at 6am she fills the pool, as the pool has a terrible leak, this has been going on for years, she can hardly walk and struggles each day to fill the pool and her water bill is very high. She is a mother of 7 children and none of us can afford to have the pool filled in, it would be nice to have the pool filled in and replaced with a beautiful garden, that my mother could enjoy everyday and water instead of constantly worrying about filling the pool at her age. Thank you for listening.

would love to have any help for my mum. My dad passed away a few months ago from a rare brain disease and she is looking after us 4 kids (age 22-12) and has no time to help look after the house/backyard. Any help would be so appreciated

Would love to win a blitz of the garden of our block of apartments. Lots of room for imagination.

We also believe there might be buried treasure.

Forgot to mention the school I work at has a great eco centre near the Murray Mouth, they propagate local natives. The lady who runs it is a gem- I'm sure she'd love to chat to you guys.

Hi guys,

I live in best friends little beach shack, it's a fibro with no insulation and it's bloody cold in winter.

It's on a 1000m2 block with the most incredible crop of apple, pear, nectarine, peaches, grapes etc.

Every time the wind blows a new part of our fence falls down, we border on 6 properties so we are slowly making our way around (2 down and 4 to go).
There are also two small sheds/spider colonies and a magnificent Hills Hoist.

My Labrador loves to find new and unusual ways to get out of the yard; over, under, through etc. He always manages to find his way back to the front step where he waits for me to come home from work.

There are probably more deserving people but this place has loads of potential and could really use some love!

We have access to plenty of able bodied helpers, just need some inspiration/direction.

Thanks!

I would like you to consider assisting two friends of mine, they share a house , the have crossed the hardest gap in life brain tumours the first friend having three surgery's in different years and then proton radiation , the second friend a brain tumour in 2004, surgery then proton radiation in 2006, now they have had a pituitary collapse because of the radiation that saved their lives , so they are struggling tiredness, they are both 1 in 10 million for their type of tumours and both have survived more than 10 years but with complications. I would love to see these two people assisted , they have given to their jobs the 1st to child care and the second to homeless. they are a credit I ask my friend what it was like to be told and give with yearly MRI's and Endrocologist appointments wondering if it will win.
She said at first I was afraid, then I stopped " I then realised it was like being on a ledge over looking the blue mountains, straight down and you know you will fall one day. You look up and out of reach is your family , they cant help you, they are trying but cant make a difference to what is going to happen, but they love you. then instead of looking down you look outward and see the view.....it is a beautiful view, it has love and laughter and you should live life, love life and love each other because they people around you are the most important thing in the world , not the money , the bills or any other problems you think you have.

If you want well deserving recipients then please do not go past the most inspiring woman I know ... My wife Vanessa. An honest hard working Australian who has given to everyone else all her life through her appeal and foundation work. An amazing mother of 4, a beautiful inspiring wife and an incredible woman. If only someone could give something back to her. She has her own battles at the minute and a surprise like this would be incredible. T#unsungaustralianhero #soproudofmy wife
