Gardening and gardens cartoon – installing a turnstile in place of a garden gate

A comic illustration showing a gardener who has replaced his garden gate with a turnstile complete with a money slot

The turnstile means that to enter his garden people have to pay. This acts as a deterrence to unwelcome visitors

By having to pay in order to reach the front door the turnstile stops cold calling door-to-door salesmen, junk mail deliverers, leaflet deliverers, Jehovah’s witnesses and other unwelcome visitors. Only people who really want to visit the house will pay to enter the garden (and possibly get a refund when the front door is answered.
I think I may install one of these devises myself now that I think about it.
