A house without a garden is not an English house. The English are proud of their gardens. They are small but always well maintained. Neither vegetables nor fruit trees are not usually planted by Englishmen. But the classic English lawn, maybe quite small, is almost mandatory. And, of course, many flowers. Usually, there is a small shed and a table with some chairs in the garden. A landlord or a resident of a house is obliged to take care of his garden. If he does not, the special service can fine him. That’s why many Englishmen hire a gardener.
