  1. I am a 54 year old single parent with a daughter of 29 who has an autistic spectrum disorder (aspbergers) she also has adhd, learning difficulties and behavioral problems. I also have several health issues and can no longer take care of the garden which was once lovely. As I live on benefits because I am her full time carer so cannot work (would love to ) so my budget doesn’t stretch to being able to pay someone to tidy it up and make it safe so therefore I am asking for your help please many thanks x

  2. Hi, not sure if I’m writing in the right place. I’m writing as I would like you to do a nice surprise for my husband who works so hard. I’d love to surprise him with a pond to replace the one the heron pierced that he worked so hard to build when we moved here into this house from new. The fish went into a temporary pond from a garden centre and are still there, I’d love to surprise my hard working hubby with the pond he’d so love plus I’d love too as I know my Dad doesn’t have long left and he loved our old pond and to have it back would bring back happy memories xx

  11. Hi, for the past 5 years my wife has volunteered at a wonderful nursery in Stockport called Charnwood, it was the first integrated nursery for disable and able bodies children in the country, she works one on one with with children with severe disabilities, the role can be challenging both physically and emotionally but it’s rewards outweigh this. My wife was spinally injured in a car accident 24 years ago and recently, her physical health has started to decline, she has also been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder in the last few
    years.
    She loves the garden, but ours could really do with a makeover, as could the Charnwood nurseries , to bring a lot of smiles to some very special peoples faces.

  12. Please can you let me know how to apply for my mums garden to be done, she is disabled and has no one who can do her garden for her. It’s so over grown she cannot sit out init the council will not do anything about this either even though she had been trying to get out of this house for the past 2 years as its a massive house with only her init and I know it will make her so happy if she could enjoy the summer In her own garden for a change Pleasr help would be very much appriciates thanks

  13. Hi I am a lone parent living in East London witha three year old. When I moved into property the garden had no shed and the layout where the shed was before has left uneven floor, concrete ground etc. there are holes in concrete and even a burrow hole where a fox lives. It is really dangerous for my son and he would love to play in garden but he can’t. I don’t have enough budget to fix garden. My landlord said its down to me to get this fixed which is unfair because it will require construction work and I’m only renting. I really need a helping hand. The garden is blank dull has no life and every summer looks the same and in no way fit to be in. Please help from a desperate mother.

  16. Dear Alan, please help us. I am a single mum with a 13 year old son with autism. Who also has speech and language disorder, who loves skipping around the garden making conversation with the birds. I do long shifts at work and so have no time to make the garden an enjoyable place for all the family. I could really do with a makeover as I lack the vision of what my garden could really be like.

  17. Dear Alan I don’t think my request of June 25 ever got through. So, please allow me to try again. I would to apply on behalf of my daughter. Jenna has cerebral palsy, she is 28 and lives alone with her cats and new puppy in a bungalow. The bungalow has had internal adaptions. Access to the garden and getting around in her wheelchair is difficult. The paths are narrow and there is no ramp from the decking and a step from the back door. She has had a difficult few years with health issues and the loss of her beloved dog. A beautiful garden would really lift her spirits. She is a wonderful daughter and so brave I would love to be part of something really special. Regards Julie x

  18. If I did not mention in my comments mum has had cancer twice heart problems dieabetic gets very depressed . I do what I can to help but the garden is to much for me. So please.
