Backyard SOS!! - Ultimate Backyard Makeover

Backyard SOS!!

HELP! Our sad yard deserves happiness, too! No job means no money to makeover our Manchester backyard to a place of beauty to enjoy. Our backyard is a metaphor for our marriage.

We began our married life in a lovely home with a nice yard shaded by mature trees which also featured an older in-ground pool, great shed and lovely plantings. Unfortunately the mature trees constantly shed branches, leaves and acorns, the pool drains stopped functioning which made effective cleaning impossible, green mold grew on the shed which rotted the doors off, and the plantings turned out to be invasive weeds. Over the years the yard and pool began to choke with decay and neglect, and so was our marriage.

The breaking point came when frogs made the pool their breeding ground - the nightly noise was deafening, the teeming polliwog population disgusting and we could take no more. However, love conquers all! We sought help to makeover our marriage, and now we need professional help to salvage and revitalize our pitiful yard. Since the offending pool required costly repairs and expensive maintenance, we filled it in last year which has left a ravaged, grass-less area in need of healing and new life like our marriage was.

Laura recently lost her job which will postpone any outdoor improvements indefinitely, so we need the Ultimate Backyard Makeover more than ever to transform our backyard into the place of beauty and enjoyment we first envisioned. It takes a lot of work and commitment to makeover a marriage, but it is worth it. Our sad yard deserves a second chance at happiness, too!
