Hi Jamie,
My wife has had a full time job for over 18 years. We have 3 children together and live in Sydney NSW. As I also work, I have little time to keep the house together especially the backyard. Two of my children aged 15 and 19 are chronically ill and we spend our money on their medical bills. Given that my wife does so much for my family i think it's time she deserves a surprise and has the dream backyard that she's always dreamt of.
Thanks, Peter

Hello Jaime
My Pop is 79 years old, he & my late nana devoted their life to caring for my oldest brother from at age of 5 putting their whole lives & dreams on hold to care for him, There dreams of travelling around Australia where beginning to get closer & closer as the years went by but sadly in late 2004 my Nan was diagnosed with Cancer & her life was cut short dying in February 2005 which turned his life upside down in which he has since lost motivation to do absolutely anything. He has not only raised my eldest brother, but myself to from the age of 12, being almost 24, I am now a single mother with two young children we reside in his house now to in which he helps raising them aswell. (I could go on forever on how amazing & helpful he is)

He lives on approximately 13 acres in the snowy mountains with the river bank at his back door. In 2012 a devastating flood came through with water sweeping the back pavement, although we were incredibly lucky the house was untouched however the surrounding areas back yard, front etc have been completely ruined with little money to fix it, it has since being untouched. He desperately needs a whole make over!

Please I ask you to find it in your heart to help him!

Hello Jamie.I have a lovely 65 yr friend who has renovated his house on his own 80 percent completed.He owns a red cedar house on 4000 sqm land in Walla Walla a rural town 35 minutes from Albury.He has a 100 chickens. I have no idea how to do up a rural block? ? Could Backyard Blitz help this poor man before he loses motivation.He is very clever in using storage containers as sheds but was hoping to put a carport in between.His health isn't too good diabetes and spinal fusion.It would be so wonderful to turn his dry land into something luscious as the drought is coming through.His background is a farmer and tree cutting but I hope you can rescue this lovely old man and make his dream come alive.Thankyou

Hi, my Mom and I are desperate for help in regards to our backyard. My dad (her husband) had been diagnosed with a rare disease called Churg-Strauss Syndrome 21 years ago and as a result of that he had multiple seizures, strokes, amputations, a lot of near death surgeries and situations. He passed away recently, (8 weeks) and my mom wants a change in the backyard. It has gotten out of hand over the years as she had to be his carer, and find a job and I had been studying so no one had the time to keep it under control. She is 62 and can not do it all. Please any help would be appreciated!

Hi jamie.
I am hoping that you can help my mum with her garden. She is 71 and in terrible pain from arthritis and nerve pain as well as a back injury. Her one escape has been her garden but is increasingly unable to maintain it. She moved here 3 years ago after retiring to be closer to family but the house that she bought needs work to the garden. She worked hard all her life, brought up 3 children on her own and deserves better for her older years. I hope that you can help her.

My close friend has 3 brothers and 1 sister. All of which live at home. They have limited space in their house and I would love to be able to help her and her family with their backyard and front yard. They have 6 car and the front space just isn’t enough to hold all their cars. They are currently going through a legal battle in keeping the house against her father. Her mother has had many trips to the hospital due to health issues.
Please help give her family a little bit of joy!

My Daughter has a house Osborne, SA. She is a single mum and expecting our second Grandchild, named after my Mother who died when she was 32. Jessica is due in August. Her large backyard is presently home to 4 chickens who provide the family with eggs. Jess is an avid gardener, and grows a lot of herbs and flowers. She is proud of her home, but simply cannot afford to do anything to her backyard.

Hi Jamie,
I’m from Orange, NSW. My parents next door neighbour is in need of a backyard overhaul! Her husband passed away in a car crash a few years ago and she raises their two sons on her own, works full time and studies at uni! On top of that she manages her young children’s junior football teams. She is forever working in her front yard but the backyard is in serious need of some help! Thanks!

I am writing because my mum needs your help so badly!! She's pushing 75 and her back garden has been covered half with tiles and half with black plastic with bricks scattered over it and a mound of sand. It's not only hazardous as she inisits on keeping her vegie garden going it's also something that she can't finish on her own which she insists she will. The garden is an utter eyesore and causes her many a sleepless night. She spent her fresher years being a foster mum for a variety of children so never really had the time to devote to fixing the yard and now she has the time she doesn't have the energy and I worry she's going to hurt herself out there. Would love for her to have a place she can have her turkish coffee outside and enjoy the space instead of going out and nearly crying at the ugliness of it. Thank you!

PLEASE HELP my mum & dad get a backyard make over!!!
My mum unfortunately suffered a stroke back in 2005 due to a brain anurism, just 3wks before what was meant to be my wedding day.
This left her completely paralysed down her left side. She has worked really hard with keeping up her excercise’s.
Then my dad was diagnosed with a type of lukemia a few years ago & is now in remission.
He continues to work and provide for my Mum whilst also trying to do everything around the house.
Hope you can help me touch they’re yard for the first time since 2005, although it’s not overgrown, just a blank canvas.
Love your show!!
