With the realisation that a back garden is a huge asset to a property, architects are increasingly falling back on the traditional terrace layout in their projects. This allows each house to have narrow strip of green in even the smallest ground space. In large apartment blocks not everybody can have a private garden, but communal spaces can often be slotted in to give the inhabitants a similar sense of seclusion.
