Rockall v Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs;  WLR (D) 227
“It was not possible for the court to provide an all-embracing test of what constituted a ‘garden’ in the context of the Forestry Act 1967. To attempt to do so might impede the flexibility inherent in the statute by imposing too rigorous a straitjacket. In determining whether or not land constituted a garden, it was important to have regard to use of the land by the occupier as well as its appearance and condition.”
