Braintree: Landscapers fix garden wrecked by cowboy builders
5:00pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
A landscape gardener came to the rescue of an elderly couple whose garden was wrecked by cowboy builders.
Darren Sudbury, 30, the owner of Designer Landscapes, and his team Harri **correct** Gilden and Tom Carmen, spent two days transforming the garden of the couple without them knowing for Channel 5 television series, Cowboy Builders.
Mr Sudbury, who lives in Beckers Green Road, Braintree, said: “The lady had an illness which was making her housebound and they had invested most of their money into getting an extension built.
“But the path was dangerous, the builders left them with no money, an unsafe house and a building site for a garden, so we brought the garden back to life and made it nice for them again.
“They knew the company was doing a program on cowboy builders at their house but not that they were doing the garden up.
“They weren’t allowed anywhere near their house while it was being done, we just really hope they will be pleased and will go out and be happy with it.”
The program will be screened in April.
