I moved into my own flat in January of this year. The flat came with a garden which I am excited about getting into and putting my stamp on it etc.
I suffer with mental illnesses which are so debilitating, I love gardening as I love to see the plants grow and flower or the spring bulbs poke up out of the ground. My garden is my therapy to help me unwind and de-stress, helps me keep up my mindfulness skills I've learn over the last few years. It's my sanctuary to hearing the birds, having the sun on my face and relaxation place, love the smell from the flowers or freshly cut grass.
However, I cannot move very well around my garden. The garden is a bit of a death trap. There are slabs which are not level, they're broken, uneven, not cemented down, which means they're a safety hazard and I'm liable to trip.
I have Fibromyalgia too which gives me widespread pain over my body and I am absolutely exhausted after doing the most simplest of tasks.
I need a landscape gardener to come in and help make it a low maintenance garden by adding some raised beds, to lift all the current slabs and level the ground, relay and concrete in.
The money raised would allow me to pay a landscape gardener to build the raised beds, lift the slabs, level the ground, relay the slabs and cement in and add some more fencing for added privacy, doing this would enable me to enjoy my garden and make it accessible for my physical needs and a relaxing and tranquil place for my therapeutic needs. Also need some fence panels/trellis to give my garden some more privacy.
I now have two quotes, one £595 and 2nd £750.
Any extra money raised will go towards plants and shrubs for my raised beds, compost and soil to fill the raised beds.
Any help is most gratefully appreciated.
