But within just seven months, her dream garden had become the “worst landscape in the world”.

“When I first moved in, it was great for the little guy, because he could play and have his friends around,” Ellis said Ayrshire live.

“Now I just close the curtains. I’m sick of seeing it. It’s like having a swamp near your house. There are algae growing on the fence and in the pots,” he describes between disbelief and anger.

We can’t let the dogs out anymoresimply because they refuse to go to the garden. They have to use the patio to go to the bathroom because they don’t walk on grass,” adds Ellis.

And sentence: “I wouldn’t be surprised if we have tadpoles soon. It has its own ecosystem.”

Fear for the future of your home

Drainage and building problems

“We’ve had live contractors twice. The first time they agreed with us that there was no drain in the back garden. But when they came for the second time, they only stayed there for a couple of minutes and at night they sent an email to blame the state of the garden on our son and the two dogs,” the man expressed bewildered.

“It’s just lazy to blame a child and dogs for your failures. There is clearly a drainage problem“, Add.

The contractors blamed the child and the family's two dogs.
