It’s been a while since we had a statistic, so here’s a good one. Of the 21 million homes in the UK with a front garden, around 33% have been turned into parking spaces for cars over the last 20 years. That’s 14,200 hectares of oxygen producing, sound absorbing, and water absorbing green space that’s vanished.

    In my suburban London street of 160-something houses, my next door neighbour and I are the only two adjacent properties which have both retained a front lawn!

    I wonder how many properties still have real grass in their rear garden too?
