Hi what's the opinion on, Lw-10 long wire, I noticed it's good for 40m to 6 m, compared to the Lw-20, I only have about 30 plus feet in length in the garden to spare...

Try a search for "long wire".
I have posted on this and you have also asked about this.

Firstly, I'd never bother buying a long wire, as they're easy to make.  After that, the more wire in the air the better, IMHO, and they can be bent around a garden to fit a longer wire.

I am running a multiband vertical at the moment mounted at ground level but am toying with the idea of adding the Sigma LW20 long wire but I am restricted to a maximum height of 3mtrs above ground level due to restrictions.

Question is am I wasting my time and money?

My 30 meter wire starts of at 3mtr and rises to around 4mtr and works well i think.
Get an extendable pole and run it at 3mtr then once a week at night raise it just a bit at one end lol.

3 metres above the ground it'll be great on 40m and 20m for inter EU but no good for DX.
