About the map

In wake of the COVID-19 lockdown, we all became accustomed to living in our bedrooms, kitchens and for the more fortunate, gardens. This analysis takes a deeper look at the average garden size per property, in various cities across the country. The patterns and trends that emerge from the analysis provide interesting insight to how much private green space we really have access to (on average) in different parts of the UK. This garden analysis combined with the recent surge of home-owners relocating to the countryside, may indicate the new priorities for purchasing a property.

Why it works

The map of garden sizes across London shows a clear trend, highlighting larger gardens as you travel further from the city centre. This combined with the comparison of cities statistics, creates an interesting piece of analysis drawing attention to where in the UK garden sizes really are larger.
