Hi, you also have my sympathy.
Just a couple of points, being disabled or having a bad back is not a reason for not replacing a fence or contacting the council re-vermin infestation. How many able bodied people call in other people to replace their fence! I called in other people to replace the top of my fence and to put concrete posts on the side fencing.
Being disabled they may have access to other services through Social Care but not want to ask for help believing they are coping. They could also enlist the help from family and freinds in maintaining the garden area.
I don't want to sound harsh or distract from your main point which is a gardening issue but would advise not to make it a disability issue if you are contacting the council, stay with the gardening issues.
I have very fond memories of trying to do wheelies in my mothers wheel chair and climbing steps in a wheel chair before ramps were invented...
I'll get my coat....
