Is your garden suitable?
Don't be shy! People always worry about me seeing the state of their garden. I can assure you, however bad you think your garden is, I can guarantee I've seen worse! So don't let that stop you from sending me a photo.
However, do please only send me a photo that you don't mind the world seeing!
If your garden is chosen, I may need to use the image as part of Garden Blueprints package, or it may be used to promote the series on social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

INSTRUCTIONS - very important you read these BEFORE submitting your garden!
In order for me to get a good feel for your garden, I NEED to see the view from the house, the one you look out to everyday.
So when you take your photo, please have your back to the house wall, or take the photo from inside the house. Have the camera set to the WIDEST landscape setting you can, or better still, take a panoramic picture, if your camera has that setting.
Sometimes people send me the strangest photos of their garden, often showing just a small corner with a tree and a shed - that is NO help at all! Remember, I've never seen your garden, the more of it you can get in the photo, the better!
Thank you so much for entering your garden. I'll be in touch if your garden is going to be used for the blueprint series. In the meantime, please leave some additional information on the next page about your garden requirements.- Rachel Mathews, Successful Garden Design
