A six-bedroom mansion worth £1 million has been criticized online for having “the most depressing garden in Britain”.

The modern, detached property is located in the sought-after town of Farnborough, on the Hampshire/Surrey border.

It has six large bedrooms, a balcony and a modern interior, but its “sad” and “small” back garden has been criticized on social media.

In the middle of a sleek modern patio, complete with decking and furniture, is a small rectangle of grass with a children’s swing set.

The lawn was criticized by an urban planning account on X, formerly Twitter, with some even comparing it to a prison yard.

One man wrote: ‘Possibly the most depressing garden I have ever seen.

As if the parents in their perfect spotless marble house had to make a small concession to the children and created the smallest, saddest bit of fun possible.’

One man chimed in: ‘Extremely depressing. Have some trees and bushes. Create some shade.

‘Have some nature around you. It will also be much better during the summer.

Another said: “One small consolation is that it’s real grass.”

One man posted: ‘I thought it was a prison yard!’

Nick Perry wrote: “That’s horrible.”

Another Twitter profile said: “He looks like a cartoon.”

The owners of the property declined to comment on the criticism when approached by MailOnline.

One social media user said the garden area looked “depressing”. In the photo: inside the modern abode.

It comes amid other garden controversies across the country.

Last month, Jack Bannister defended the destruction of a family’s “beautiful” garden after he was criticized online for laying down strips of artificial grass.

The 34-year-old bought the three-bedroom house in Clitheroe, Lancs, for £200,000 in 2021.

Then he took out all the flowers, trees and plants carefully cultivated by the previous owner.

It was posted on Twitter with the title: “Parents buy new construction, mom creates garden, parents sell house, buyers do this…”

Critics were quick to compare the “depressing” new garden to “a prison yard” and called the landscaping renovation a “disgrace.”
