The artificial grass just inside the Indian Gate was laid in Oct 2016 as an 'experiment'. It seems to have failed. It is losing its colour and beginning to look like worn carpet; even more unsuitable for a Grade II listed garden and one of the first things a visitor sees inside the main gate,
It should be replaced by a low, tough shrubbery surrounded by low railings. There is no shortage of other grassed areas in the gardens that are accessible to visitors.
