I moved from a semi with a large corner plot, to a detached with a very long back garden, but a tiny front. My husband to be then bought the house next door and we combined the gardens. I have always gardened since very young. I knew that was what I wanted, but at times, especially when I was working six days a week to pay the mortgage after I got divorced, it did get a bit neglected. With a large garden, you have to be able to put in a lot of hours or not mind it being a bit messy.
Now, I am practically retired, the next place will be a bungalow, with a large plot, and less grass, but better permanent pathways.
