Can you help? I have moved into a rented property. I haven't rented for 30 years so I am very rusty on the rules and stuff. What are the general guidelines for the garden? There is a small conifer that was obviously dying because it hadn't been planted deep enough - I have dug it up and diposed of it. There were some small bushes in the middle of the patio. I have dug them up and moved them to a different position in the garden. In my opinion this looks better and doubles the size of the patio. But now I realise I should probably have asked for permission before I did these things. So that led me to the question of what the general "rules" are with regard the garden in a rental property. Anyone willing to share - from a tenants or a lanlords point of view. I can always put the bushes back in their original position but the conifer can't be rescued.
