Avening: A large expanse of country house lawn where absolutely no weeds exist at all. Any sign of weeds within said lawn are treated with horror by the owners and with suspicion of weedkiller by purist gardening visitors to the mansion. This is always refuted by the head gardener but he’s likely to have his fingers crossed.
Corse Lawn: The opposite to Avening. An area of so-called garden which will contain a large number of highly coloured plastic toys, swings and a dog pen. Probably a rope will hang from any tree branch and there’s likely to be a trampoline which will take up any available garden space. Nothing like grass grows within.
