The market town of Chard is the highest in Somerset and nestles nicely between Dorset and Devon.
When Tim and Donna moved into their new home in Chard, in 2009, they began a complete renovation of the interior of their new house.
In the front garden, two overgrown fir trees were blocking daylight and an old concrete pathway leading to uneven steps, took you down to street level.
Plans to refurbish the external area at the front of the property, that included levelling the garden and installing a dropped kerb, were submitted to the council for planning permission.
Two applications and one appeal later, permission was finally granted.
