Gardens in London are being concreted over

Gardens in London are ever changing but today more often than not it is from green to grey as homeowners are covering over beautiful green lawns with pavement to lay decking and build sheds a charity for wildlife says. Each year the capital loses two and a half times the size of greenery at Hyde Park because of design trends in gardening the London Wildlife Trust reported last week.

A vast area is covered by gardens in London but the scale and speed that they are disappearing is alarming said the deputy chief executive of the Trust, Matthew Frith. They detrimentally hurt the wildlife in London and impact the ability for us to cope with climate change. This is the time when it is most important that Londoners realize the value of our gardens in the capital.

On average each year there are over 500 gardens lost to new housing developments. Studies show that 24% of the Greater London area is garden land with an estimated 3.8 million garden plots and over 2.5 million garden tress in the capital.
