Taylor’s garden transformation
Our whole ethos at me&dee is bespoke – we’re all about the not box ticking thing.
We’ve been working with the amazing Taylor Lewsey and his mum Terri for many years. Taylor as our me&dee family know suffered with meningitis and sepsis as a baby and had to have his legs and hands amputated. He’s eight years old now and has so far undergone 86 operations – that’s right. Eighty. Six.
We’ve done lots for Taylor and his family over the years – days out, presents, experiences – just whatever we could think of to provide joy and happiness in a life that’s not been easy.
Anyway so this brings us to Taylor’s garden.
Taylor and his family moved into their house in Ilkeston a few years ago and inside it’s pretty great for his needs.
Outside, though, was a bit of a different story. We won’t go into the whole long sorry saga but basically Taylor’s garden was on two levels outside and because when he’s at home he likes to get around outside on just his stumps as his blades can be a bit painful, he couldn’t actually use any of the nice stuff that was out there for him, like his slide and his trampoline.
With the weather getting warmer we wanted to try and help so enlisted the help of the one and only … drum roll please … Paul Bignall from PB Landscapes of Melbourne.
