In Denmark we have only the first model, but it is different,
because people build houses on their plot. It is mostly for people
in apartments and people who work like to sleep out there, to sit on
a warm summer evening with a Danish flag and a good dinner with
beer and snaps and enjoy after a hard day's weeding.
This is Danish culture in a nutshell...
I would not at all like the second model. A bit of individualism is
a good thing, I think.
P.S. Loads of people simply move into their allotment houses and
give up the apartment. This is illegal, but then Danes have a streak
of anarchy in their genes. Especially pensionists do this, having
used a lot of money and time to make the house tip-top.
