Oh my God,someone ,at last supporting what I have been saying for 50 years. I live in Surrey and know what you mean. I can't understand why people buy houses with gardens and then build 6" fences and walls. Then they concrete the garden and turn it into a monument patch with trees growing in pots.!! It is all to do with "control", I'm told.The trees are clipped and no wildlife is allowed in this NEAT patch. They have told me to REMOVE my compost bins(oh yeah) and water butts, as they are "ugly".Not aesthetic is the word! I could go on...!
Bye the way, they LIKE watching the wildlife in my garden. How sad.
PS I have just bought more compost bins and water butts.
