Alan Titchmarsh’s hit ITV series of Love Your Home and Garden is back on our TV screens. The programme recognises inspirational people facing challenging life situations. In recognition of their dedication, Alan and his team give their house and garden a surprise make-over. This makes their lives a little easier, improving their quality of life with a dramatic transformation which is practically designed as well.
Jacksons Fencing are on hand to help as Alan travels to Hemel Hempstead where an elderly couple cope with the husband Mike’s dementia. The garden was over a metre below the house, making it inaccessible to Mike at a time when mental stimulation is more important than ever.
Alan and the team’s vision was to open up the garden for Mike and his wife Anne to enjoy. Along with design and theming, an important aspect was accessibility. As Mike previously found it challenging or even impossible to go into the garden, Alan wanted him to be able to go outside and explore it with ease.
Jacksons Fencing was on hand to help the project in any way it could. The garden products specialist donated Tongue and Groove fence panels for the garden’s perimeter. Jacksons also sent a team of Approved Installers to Hemel Hempstead to assist in the garden’s renovation, and make sure the fencing was installed to Jacksons’ exacting standards.
The new fencing grants the couple privacy, creates a peaceful shelter, and brings a refined look to the garden. With this new boundary, a touch of class has been added to the garden design, providing a beautiful space for the pair to enjoy.
The couple are family-oriented and the garden is always a busy environment. Therefore it was important to make it a space perfect for socialising. Jacksons supplied a Retreat Garden Shelter for the garden providing a dining area where the family can relax and enjoy each other’s company.
