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.

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