DIY SOS Ireland, RTE Television. Series 2, Episode Longwood, Co Meath.

This was the garden I designed and realised alongside a bizillion miracles and angels, as one part of an amazing build team and you, who made the magic really real.

From DIY SOS Ireland:

The DIY SOS Team, headed up by Baz Ashmawy and his team of Purple Shirts, are coming to Longwood in June to help The Parsons Family. Glen, Jenn and their two boys Ryan & Josh – who live in Longwood, Co. Meath.

There are three members of this family with additional needs & their small semi-detached home is no longer practical or functional. Josh (6) after 4 years of investigation was diagnosed with Smith-Magennis Syndrome, a severe developmental disorder that affects many parts of the body. Josh is non-verbal, peg-fed and is in a wheelchair. He is unable to walk, crawl or sit unaided. Josh’s older brother Ryan has autism and sensory requirements and needs his space & quiet time, which is difficult for him to get sometimes in the current house layout. Jen also has multiple health issues which are getting increasingly debilitating & affecting her mobility.
