so where to begin?? That's the question i ask myself every time i look at my mums back garden. Her once loved pride and joy is now nothing more to her than a vast blank wilderness. After spending almost 4 months in hospital, and almost calling it a day with a trip to the pearly gates all she wanted to do was come home, at the time that seemed like a goal she'd never reach. however to everyone's delight and doctors bewilderment she made it home. Now some months later she would love to be able to get out in her garden, but its not suitable for her, with the lack of fencing and uneven ground, even if she could get down the humongous step out side the back door, it wouldn't be appeasing to her. now imagine for a moment that you spent a long time in hospital deifying all the odds with people poking and prodding you 24/7 and no windows now think that you go home and would like your own space that's private but realise that you step out to the garden and all your neighbours who have been wondering where you've been are all staring at you making there own assumptions. what would you give to enjoy your outside space that you once loved and for it to be private? also what would it mean to you to actually use this space without fear and worry that you may fall or injure yourself.
We are asking for the funds to be able to give back mums Independence in her own home and garden, please give what you can or share with those that may be able to help. every little contribution gets us closer to being able to put a smile on mums face again.
We are aiming to put in a raised deck with a ramp access to the garden, raised beds so she can continue to grow her own veg with out bending, a patio for her to enjoy the birds and weather (hopefully), level paths for her to be able to move around without worry. a pergola for shade over the patio. and then level and lay turf around the rest of the garden and an outdoor tap so she can keep all of her flowers and veg watered and happy.
