I'm inclined to agree with Gemma.......our landscape has been managed in one way or another ever since we first set foot here. "Tidying" our gardens is just another form of management.
For myself, I do tidy to a degree but I don't chop everything down by any means as I find some vegetation can benefit overwintering creatures.....big and small.
There is also the question of time I think.......some of us have more of that than others
