Disappearing Front Gardens

The humble front garden. Whatever happened to it? Lush, well-manicured green lawns of the 50’s surrounded by Hydrangea’s in an array of psychedelic colours interspersed with equally garish dahlia’s in glorious technicolour. Many still have front gardens, but sadly they are a shadow of their former self. Necessities of life have forced their conversion to car parks and bin stores and few people have time to devote to them.
