  • Henry Nancy

    After being in relationship with my husband for nine years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email is (LAVENDERLOVESPELL@YAHOO.COM } tel.+2347053977842) you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

  • Jan McGregor

    My once beautiful garden is now an overgrown jungle – I haven’t been able to cope with it since my husband left last year and all but the youngest of my kids has moved away as I’m disabled and it spans best part of half an acre. Can’t afford to get someone in to sort it out or get our ride-on mower repaired as I’m now living on a tiny pension and benefits. Would really appreciate some help

  • angeline.

    Hi I’m a mum of 4 year old twins who were born extremely perm at 24 weeks, after a very long 6 months in hospital they came home. But as a results of this they both have cerebral palsy along with other medical conditions, one of my girls can walk but is very unsteady the other cannot walk without the aid if a fully supportive walker.
    It is extremely difficult for us to go out to the park like other children, but our garden is so uneven and not safe or suitable for out girls.
    We spent all our savings on making the house suitable for them that we now can’t afford to do the garden.
    Please please will you help us ?
    Or do you know someone who might ?
    Kind regards
    Angeline

    We so much need your help ,the person i wish to nominate is blind and recently had her legs removed ,even though she has the use of a wheelchair but she is trapped in room as the chair has not enough access to get out her out to the garden ,her quality of life is pretty poor ,but she enjoys the smell of cut flowers but alas they do not last long and she would prefer to smell flowers growing ,flat areas where she can be pushed in her wheelchair and shaded area because she has kidney failure and dehydrates very quickly in the sun,plants raised on a higher level would help as she can still feel with her hands but,, nothing sharp or prickly ,,,i know this is rather a tricky one dealing with so many disabilities ,but we are at a wits end ! her care workers push her outside her front door and leave there at her own request ,being a town house it does bring about a few odd looks ,Hope you can help .

    This is my first house after living with my parent’s, and it’s far too much for me with a 9 month old baby things are getting out of control. Iv tryed my hardest to tidy things up and make a start but no matter where I start it doesn’t make a difference.
    My partner works so doing it on my own is very difficult juggling it around my daughters needs. It’s getting me really down and depressed at the fact that we can’t have a nice garden, it woudl be nice to be able to let my daughter out there but the state it’s in I can’t do so.
    Please can you help.

I had a serious car accident about 4 years ago and am now wheelchair bound and find it difficult to get about especially in the garden.

  • Jessica

    Hi, back in 1987 my father suffered from a brain hemorrage which was so deep it was inoperable, he was in a coma for 13 days. If that wasn’t bad enough in 1989 he then suffered another which left him struggling with his balance and vision, which then left him with double vision. His strength and determination enabled him to return to his career as a Police officer with the Greater Manchester police. One side of his body has always been weaker than the other however, you’d have never guessed. If this wasn’t enough for my Dad to go through on New Years Eve this year he then suffered from a stroke, which left his left side just as weak as his right. Recovering well my Dad also had a scare in late feburary however touch wood all is well now. I couldn’t tell you one person I know who is as strong as my Dad and been through what he has and yet still stands as a loving husband, father and grandfather. My Dad is one person who always puts others before himself yet will never dwell on his past and moan yet always looks towards the future. A hands on man himself our massive garden is his pride and joy, yet due to all the knock backs he has suffered he has to admit himself that he can’t keep on top of it like he used to. My amazing mother works full time and me and my brother try to help as much as we can but with two twin children himself and me going to University in September I just hoped this could be done for him, a little something for us all to put my Dad first for once and show our appreciation. If something as meaningful to him, such as our garden could put a smile on my Dads then I don’t think I could ask for much more not just for him, but for my mum too, something they can look out too and be proud of, just like me and my brother are of them.
    Thankyou, Jess.

  • Sue Harding

    I’d love to get Alan and/or his team to help my daughter ‘tame’ her garden! Since last September (2011) she’s had eye problems with the result that she now has virtually no sight in one eye – pretty tough for a 27-year old to come to terms with! Her garden is a jumble of botched hard landscaping left by a previous owner, and I’d like to get it safe for her to use as she can’t always judge distances and depths. She’d always planned to grow her own vegetables but the small higgledy-piggledy plots make it difficult for her. I try to help clearing but I have knee problems so I can’t do much before I have to stop. Please, can you help us to create a garden my daughter can enjoy, even if she can’t always see it!

  • becky linford

  • Jan Meaney

    Hello,I wonder if you can give me some advice. I have tried hard over the years to create a decent garden but increasingly I am having problems with poor drainage. My plants are suffering, the grass is under water and I have been using the path as s small boating lake. I have tried everything I can think of to improve the drainage. I share my garden with quite a few of the local kids who pop in for a chat or advice if they have a problem. It is amazing how we have sorted things over a shrub tub or two. Any help would be gratefully received

  • Gemma Mulcock

    Hi Alan,we love the new show and the transformations are amazing. My family would be thrilled of your expertise and guidance. We have a large garden and just don’t know where to begin. I am on maternity leave and would love to be able to play with my 5 year old girl and baby boy during the summer holidays. Please can you help, looking forward to hearing from you Gemma from Swindon.

  • Denise Nero

    Hi Team,….Great show!
    We’ve lived here for 7 years. We’re so lucky to have parkland to the front of the house & a wildlife reserve at the back.
    We have an allotment garden that sits beyond our back garden & alongside the wildlife reserve.
    We’ve been overwhelmed by the project. We’re unsure of what to plant & how to create a plan with a budget that we can follow through.
    Expert knowledge & advice will turn a ‘wanna be allotment garden’ into a space that can be enjoyed by our families & neighbours.
    We’d love for you to help make our dream come true:)
    Denise & Ray in Morden.

  • Denise Nero

    Hello Team,
    Great show!
    We’ve lived here for 7 years. We’re so lucky to have parkland to the front of the house & a wildlife reserve at the back. We’re not overlooked & we love our surroundings. We fell in love the allotment garden that sits behind our house & alongside the wildlife reserve. However, the scale of the allotment project has overwhelmed us. Where not sure what to plant & how to create a plan with a budget that we can follow through.
    Expert knowledge & guidance could turn our ‘wanna be allotment garden’ into a haven that can be enjoyed by us & our neighbours, who we’d like to share the garden with.
    We hope you can make our dreams come true.
    Many thanks…Denise & Ray form Morden.

    I would like a garden makeover, I have lived in my house with my son and my partner for over four years now. I have made many attempts to make my garden nice. It keeps over growing and it terrible to maintain. As myself and my partner work full time it is hard to keep on top of my garden. I would like somewhere to relax with my family on a weekend and this is the reason for this e mail.

  • HappyNan

    How do you fancy tackling a garden that backs on to a river? We took on this bungalow 6 years ago and stripped the garden back to make it more easy to look after. After the first severe winter we discovered there were goldfish in a pond – we cleaned it out and they rewarded us the next summer with babies!! We have tried to put up temporary fencing at the end of the garden so our grandchildren and puppy/dog does not end up in the river, but the garden is in desperate need of imagination to make it a safe haven for the children and dog to play in and for everyone to enjoy.

  • Catherine Coxon

    I have a garden that needs a make over -but – NEVER will the wonderful Mr Titmarsh put his foot on the estate I live in –Why?because it is on a council estate. my husband died 6 years ago before he died he tried to make the looking after the garden easy for me -unfortunately I now have arthritis and a little dog that has set his mind on totally ruining my attempts to keep the garden looking at the least tidy. But as I know Mr Titmarsh will look down on the person who lives on a common council estate . Cannot take you for serious Mr Titmarsh you do as you are told .

    My family & I would love a garden make over. We have recently just moved to a new house, which needed lots of work inside, which has left us with no extra money to tackle the garden. This is our first proper garden and would love an outside area for our family & friends to enjoy with us. My husband had a stroke 10 years ago, which left him partially sighted and dizzy, which makes him disorientated. My youngest daughter has Albinism and is also registered partially sighted. Our garden at the moment is overgrown and the patio area is very uneven, making it difficult for my husband and daughter to safely move around. I have tried my best to tackle the area but it just need so much work I really don’t know where to begin. Therefore we would really love your help. Thank you.

    hi my name is david my wife has had a diverse upbringing and has had a lot of knockbacks over the years. i sufferer from a sleeping disorder and have devoted my time to looking after the family financialy so i have no energy to garden. my wife has looked after the children with a debilitating back problem (1 slipped disc and 2 slipped ones) and still it does not stop her from achieving. she 4 years ago desided to go back to colledge and university. she has since then not only looked after the house and children but has just gained a degree in psychology. the last year she built a wall which took her all summer because of her back and is building another wall which also needs replacing this somer. she mixes cement on her knees by hand as she is not cappable of mixing it in the conventional way. i think she deserves a medal and a brake from the garden and to have the garden she has always wanted. she has told me her plans of finnishing the wall this year but will have to start on the ground work of the garden next year. she is an insperation to all around her and has never had a brake please give her a well earned surprise.

    Hi I am writing on behalf of my 81 year old mum. She always loved gardening and was over the moon when she moved into her bungalow which has a small garden out front and a bit bigger out the back. Her husband is housebound with Parkinsons and now mum has severe mobility problems and her hip and knee joints do not allow her to walk far,let alone tend to her beloved garden. It would be a fantastic surprise for her to have garden makeover,just something done to make it easy to manage and beautiful to look at,as her husband is almost bedbound and spends his day either in bed or special chair just looking out the window.She used to have greenfingers and gets so frustrated she cannot put anytime into her small garden. Can you help please? There is a side entrance to her bungalow for easy access. I would be eternally grateful.Mum has always taken great store by Mr Titmarsh and believes nobody knows gardens better than him. Regards Pamela Lewis daughter of Lyn

    This is not a sob story but could make great TV as regards visual impact. We are a typical newly married young couple with a baby on the way, who have struggled to buy our first home leaving no money to tackle a truly unruly garden on a corner site with a ditch at the bottom and on a flood plain. Family & friends would love to help but don’t know how to tackle it.
    Please HELP, thank you.

    I would like to have a garden makeover for my mum. She deserves it as she has a lot on in her life. A garden should be somewhere to relax and forget about everything, but our garden is a mess and causes arguements. My mum has a full time job working for disabled people. She rarely gets days of but when she does she spends it at my grandmas and grandpas house. We moved to our new house because my grandma has osteoprosis so its a struggle for her to travel like she was doing. My grandpa all so has bipolar and some days he can be very down about life. With all this stress on mums plate, she hasn’t had the time or money to do the garden. If we had a new garden our family might be closer. My brother has been deognosed with ADHD and autism so having a messy garden really winds him up. I hope you can help as it would mean so much to me and for my mum. Thank you x

  • walter claydon

    i have been disabled since the age of three,with polio,but i have always pushed my self to do all my own work ,i have worked all my working life has a joiner,and i have been self employed untill my disability forced me to retire,my wife and i have never asked any body for help ,we have always done our DIY and maintanence,together,and i have also done work for family and friends in the past,we have always kept a tidy garden and enjoyed sitting out in the nice weather,but now we are both to disabled to keep up with the gardening,my nieghbour cuts the lawn for us now but he is also getting on in years now and we can,t expext him to do any more for us,also we have brought my wifes 92 years old mother to live with us has she is to frail now to look after herself ,she is housebound now but if only we could have a nice low maintanece and easy access garden for her to sit out i,m sure this would cheer her up in her twylight years,for the past 10 years i have sat on my backside to do my gardening,but now i find it immpossible to get back up without help ,i would be the happiest person ever if you would please consider me for a garden make over PS my wife has no idea that i have written to you ,thank you very much alan x

  • SALLY VALLELY

    hi i would like a garden makeover for my son Daniel. At 18 Daniel brought his own house as i was moving to cornwall & he didnt want to move with me.He brought a really old house with quite a big garden that has conifer trees down one side. Since then he now has a little boy of 5 who he has every weekend. He keeps the lawn mowed but thats about he can not afford to do of the work in the garden that needs doing. I am very proud of my son and feel that he deserves to have a makeover not just for him but charlie too he loves playing out in the garden but the trees are so big he gets no sun in the garden anymore.He is not willing to go into debt for anything and so i feel that he really deserve a makeover from you that would but so good not just for daniel but for charlie also Thank you

    Hi, i would so love a garden make over. i look after my niece,& have done so over the last 20yrs, she physicaly & mentaly disabled, & is also registered blind. we moved in to our new house over a yaer ago, the back garden is very big, & very open, with small metal fence round it, there is loads of kids in the area, who play football in which the ball ends up in our garden all the time, with everything else that gets thrown in to my garden, my niece doesnt even want to go in to the garden now, as the noise of all the kids playing out there makes her feel a bit insecure about going out there, & i am a bit feart myself about her going out there, just incase she gets hit with something. she loved going out to the garden at my old house but we had to move in to this house, as it bigger & better for her needs, I would have liked to put a bigger fence or hedging round it, to give us some privacey at least, but i have put all my money plus i am still paying of things that we needed for the house, so i have not got anything left for the garden, i have put some plants here & there round the garden, just to try & make it look nice, but the back garden is very big, so cant do very much way it. anyways to win a make over from allen, would be realy fantastic, thank you.

  • Ann connelly

    hi, i would be so delighted if a could get a garden makeover in my back garden, i have my niece whom i have looked after for 20yrs now, & she phisicaly & mentaly disabled, & registered blind, weve moved in to this area about a year ago, and i have put all my money in to our new home, & much more, so have no money lft to do anything way my back garden, the area is full of kids etc, who tend to throw balls ect into the garden all the time as its very open,there is a metal fence round the garden, but its not very big, or gives you much privacey, would love to put some bigger fencing or hedging round it to try & give us some privacy, but cant afford to do that, she used to love going out into my old garden at my old house, which was a bit more private, but had to give that up, as this was a bigger & better house for her needs. i have tried to get her to go out into the new garden, but does not want to go out now, as there is to many kids playing & shouting, as i said, throwing things into the garden, which i am also affraid incase she get hurt with anything. so winning a makeover would be so great for her & me.thank you.

    A garden makeover or at least a re-design in parts would make myself and my Husbands lives a lot easier. At 55 and 62 years old, we have both forms of arthritis and although just about get by with maintenance now- we both worry about how we will do our garden in the future; the problem with it being that it is on two levels (and does not need to be) We both try to serve our community in ways that we can, by running an oil buying syndicate volun tarily so that our Village residents get a better deal on oil buying; plus I am Secretary and my Husband is Advertising Administrator for our local Community Cafe and Club. I am finding it more difficult to get up to the higher level of my garden; plus I cannot kneel to get to the beds, so a better designed garden with ‘arthritic joints’ in mind would be a godsend to us. Our little Village in Suffolk is lovely and we just want our garden to look tidy and pretty. Thank You.

  • Julie Leverett

    My Husband and I are in need of a change to our garden layout as it is on two levels at present. As we both have arthritic conditions we cannot get to the upper level very easily and maintenance of our garden is becoming very difficult for us, although at present we just about manage, but are stressed about how we will keep it tidy in future years when our condition worsens with age. We have lived in our bungalow for three years now, but only have the energy to keep it maintained rather than making it our own little piece of heaven to relax in in our old age. We would love to see our garden transformed into an easily maintainable and accdessible area for us both. Thank You,

  • Mrs Jo Knight

    This sounds such a fantastic Idea, I would love the chance to get to know my garden. My husband and I are often just tiding it to make do, but with a little guidance I’m sure working together with a team that know’s what there doing, We could make it Happy and inviting. good luck with all the applications, xx

  • Joan Stanley

    My husband and I would love to have a garden make-over. We live in a bungalow and our living room is on the back where we have a small garden and it is a ‘funny’ shape, it goes to a point. My husband always did the gardening but, at 79 and disabled, he is unable to do it now. I am not a gardener, but I do my best. It could really do with redesigning and making low mainenance, somewhere we could sit and enjoy the weather (whe we have it). Hoping we are lucky and get the help from you and your team. Joan and Roy

  • Joan Stanley

    My husband and I would love a garden make-over. We have a very small garden at the back and it is also a funny shape (it goes to a point). Our living room is on the back and we would like somewhere to sit in the summer. My husband used to do the garden but is now, at 79, disabled and unable to do any physical work. I try to do what I can, but I am NO gardener. The front is a lot larger but I have a gardener to do this. He does what he can with an hour every fortnight. Hoping we are sucessful. Joan and Roy

  • Joan Stanley

    My husband and I would love a garden make-over, mainly for the garden at the back of the house. We live in a bungalow and the living room is at the back of the house and it would be nice if we could sit in a nice enviroment. The garden is very small and is a very peculiar shape. My husband used to do the garden but he is now disabled and can not do physical work (he is on Oxygen) so there for, it is up to me, and I am no gardener and it really needs replanning to make it low maintenance. We love to watch the birds and also we have a small fish pond. hoping for helping hand. Joan & Roy
