Ellie Mae in her garden

Ellie Mae’s garden is in need of a makeover!

Website MyBuilder.com have launched a search to find Britain’s Worst Garden and will be rewarding one lucky winner with a £1,000 garden makeover.

The competition was launched just one week ago and has already attracted well over 100 entries from people across the country who could benefit from having a garden makeover.

Nicola Machin from Willenhall is one homeowner hoping to win the prize to transform her garden and make it much easier for the wheelchair of her young daughter Ellie Mae.

Ellie Mae is living with cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus and epilepsy and loves nothing more in life than gardening. Winning this competition would have a truly life changing impact on Ellie Mae and the whole family.

Having access to a garden that is fit for purpose can have huge benefits for children with neurological conditions. It gives them a place to play like any other child in a safe and stimulating environment.

Entries are currently available to vote for on MyBuilder.comNicola and Ellie Mae would really appreciate your vote. The twelve entries with the most votes will be shortlisted and with voting closing 27th May. MyBuilder will then select the winner from the 12 finalists.

2013’s winner, stroke victim Jon Mason describes his garden transformation as life changing. His recommendation for this year’s entrants? Just enter! “I’ve never won anything before, so if I can win, anyone can”. He advises everyone to “encourage friends to share and vote for them” and hopes it has a similar impact for this year’s winner.

If your garden is in need of a makeover, or if you would like to nominate someone to have their garden transformed, you can also still enter here. Entries close on 20th May.
