trago garden samantha probus

Samantha from Probus

Our garden is sad and a hazard to our kids. We have chicken wire stopping the dog from getting on the grass as he loves to dig to the other side of the world. The kids have to climb a tree to get into their trampoline. The grass is more like a bog. Our 3rd daughter has spinal problems and can’t feel her left foot. We have to be super careful all the time as she falls in the lumpy grass and stupid little stones get everywhere. Please help!!!


Megan from Dobwalls

We would like to nominate our garden to help our dad. 10 months ago he had an accident and fell 165ft down a cliff in Looe whilst walking home. He was really lucky to be saved by RNLI in Looe as the tide was coming in. He suffered an open broken pelvis and was out of hospital 5 days later. We are really proud of him as he's pushed himself so hard to enable him to get back to work (self employed carpet fitter) to pay the bills and look after us. He works so hard and is often tired when he finishes work and his hip aches. We would like him to have the garden makeover so it's one thing he doesn't have to worry about doing. Thank you Megan age 18 and Owen age 14.

We just moved in to a new property, have spent the last couple of months sorting out the inside but haven't got any ideas on how to make the garden a great place for kids and bird and bee friendly.

Murray from Redruth

With my wife working full time and me joining the police two years ago, adjusting to life with shift work and having our second child 19 months ago has left finding time to manage the garden difficult. Family time is so important and special and the children love the garden but help is needed to enjoy it at its' best!

trago garden amanda st austell

Amanda from St Austell

My children so deserve to win this because they have never had a garden. We lived in a flat for the last 4 years and spent all our summers down at the park or beach. We finally had the opportunity to move to a house with a small garden and I was I've the moon to have outdoor space. However as you can see from the picture its very small and needs someone who has the know how and vision to utilise the space. I'm a single working parent and have absolutely no idea where to start. Please help me make our garden child friendly for the summer! It's also my 7 year old daughters birthday on the 10th May, she desperately wants a trampoline, but I have had to say no due to the garden issue. It is a slight slope and I don't know how to make it safe for a small trampoline. If we won this I could suprise her with a trampoline for her birthday and my son would be over the moon too. Its the perfect small size for a quick make over and I think would look amazing with the right touches. Thank you for considering our entry.
