The Backyard Blitz team did a makeover on a small backyard for a very deserving family. In the end the result looked wonderful and the team picked up the bill, covering the $31 000 price tag.
I wonder what we could achieve in our backyard with $31 000. I reckon we’d just brick pave the entire area. We are definitely the world’s worst gardeners.
We have a very nicely designed backyard. It’s on two levels with a brick paved area, some grass and some garden beds. The garden beds are full of weeds. Come to think of it so is the lawn. And now that you mention it, there are weeds growing through the gaps in the brick paving.
The plants we’d like to keep alive in our garden die with monotonous regularity. The weeds we could well do without, thrive.
I wish we knew what we were doing in the garden but we’re hopeless. I’d be more than happy to have gardening skills, or the money to pay someone who has, but without either it looks like I’ll just keep trying to poison the weeds in the garden beds and in the paving and mowing down the ones in the lawn.
What a shame Backyard Blitz never decided to play with our little piece of the planet.
Are you a gardener? Do you have green thumbs? Can you keep the right kinds of plants alive at your place?
