Lift manufacturer Terry Lifts has helped support the ITV Love Your Garden team by helping to transform the garden of Cheshire-based care worker, Carl Lamptey and his family.

Alan Titchmarsh and the Love Your Garden team travel around the UK transforming ordinary gardens into inspirational outdoor spaces for some of the country’s most deserving families and individuals.

The show, which aired on ITV on Tuesday 28th September 2021, showed how the family’s 80.6m2 garden had to be accessed by several steps from a raised patio and largely laid to lawn, with an abandoned summer house.

Carl lives in Macclesfield with his wife, Elle and their three children. He is a full-time carer for children with Down syndrome and epilepsy.

Elle was recently diagnosed with a spinal disability and had difficulty entering the garden.

The Love Your Garden team called on the help of Knutsford-based Terry Lifts to provide a solution.

On the advice of the lift specialist, Love Your Garden selected the Melody 3 vertical platform lift in anthracite black with transparent infilled sides and auto-locking manual gates.

Travelling a maximum of three metres the lift can accommodate virtually any manual or powered wheelchair, and a carer.

The lift gives Elle independent access to the garden, where she can immerse herself in the scent and texture of the plants and enjoy the space with her family.

Terry Lifts installed the lift over three days, including associated preparatory work. Due to the unusual timescale the installation team had to devise an alternative fixing method installing pre-cast concrete blocks to the upper level rather than poured concrete.

This provided the necessary structural integrity to ensure a solid fix for the load imposed by the lift.

Steve Hill, Sales Manager for Terry Lifts, said: “We are very pleased to have supported the Love Your Garden team once more.

“I was lucky to be onsite during the installation, with my colleague, Steve Bell and we agreed that it was an experience we won’t forget. We met some great characters, working alongside the landscape team and other suppliers, as well as the presenting team, of course!

“It is always a privilege to help families like the Lampteys and we wish them many happy hours in their new garden.”

Over the past year, Terry Lifts has reported strong international sales which it says has helped to drive the lift the manufacturer’s recovery after it was forced to stop manufacturing lifts for a few weeks at the peak of the pandemic last year.
