Having a garden is something that is very important for property hunters in Britain. Apart from the prestige of having a private area to relax, gardening is a popular hobby in The UK and the fact that a property has a garden can significantly increase its price.
Having a garden is also important for buyers and renters with children as they will need some space to play. Unlike in many European countries, there are a lot of properties with private gardens in the UK even in bigger cities like London and Manchester. Even shared houses and student houses in London tend to have a small garden area.
