According to designer Mickey Stretton, ‘CapitalGardens works essentially like a property lettings service, only with much shorter contracts. The idea came to me this summer, while I was sweating it out in my fourth floor flat in London: What if I could rent a garden, just for a fortnight? It would have to be a nice garden, complete with a swimming pool and barbecue. And then it occurred to me that there must have been many people who had departed for their summer break and who would have probably appreciated someone to look after their garden, water the plants and even keep an eye on their house at the same time. So everyone would be a winner. This enterprise is currently in its planning stages. Any offer of venture capital investment will be greatly received.’
