Watch 11:45 Monday 1 June 2015 on Channel 5

They’ve lived in their house for 10 years, and all their energy, time and money has gone towards raising their family. When the couple undertook the job of building a garden wall, so their children could play safely, they expected it to last longer than 6 years. However after the first year the wall started to lean, and this has caused the couple such concern that they have stopped their children from playing in the garden. Can the team help the family to enjoy the sunshine in their garden safely?

Builder Chris Payne inspects the wall and gets on with demolishing and rectifying with a brand new fence. To get to the root of the problem Dan meets a tree surgeon and gets some key advice. Whilst Melinda and Interior Designer Edward Robinson give Vanessa and Craig a treat with a contemporary bedroom makeover.
