A couple were reduced to tears when TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh completely transformed their green space.
Army veteran Dale joined the Forces when he was 16 and lost his leg in Afghanistan in 2009. He. had returned home struggling with mobility issues and PTSD.
His wife Laura was desperate to get rid of the old garden which had steps and walls, preventing Dale from using some parts of the garden.
Appearing on ITV's Love Your Garden episode on Tuesday (October 19), presenter Alan visited their home in Barry, Wales, to offer help in turning the couple's dream into reality.
The green-fingered host and his team gave the family their own little fruit patch, an open bar-cum-dining area in the corner, a climbing wall for their two sons, as a tranquil space for Dale.
When Dale and Laura were invited to their garden for the first time after the upgrade, they could not believe what they saw.
"Oh wow," Dale said, covering his mouth and laughing in disbelief. "Oh my God, this is absolutely beautiful. This is stunning."
A tearful Laura was lost for words as she looked around to get herself familiar with the new decor.

Alan added: "We had a lot of things to achieve in this garden. It's a family garden that had to appeal to children.
"To Laura, who still can't believe it's her garden, but above all, we had to get Dale out of that little square just outside the back door.
"He now has a garden where he can get absolutely everywhere. This garden and its access to nature, has changed one man's life forever."
