Most homes in the UK have those triangular or square washing lines - aka Outdoor Rotary Airer (sometimes called whirlies short for Whirl-y-gig which must've been a brand name) in the rear gardens. They spin round in the wind and are great.
It's bad form to leave the pegs out on the line - pegs should be kept in a peg bag! Its also not done to hang laundry in the front garden, back gardens only. This poses a problem for people in the old 'back-to-back' terraces with only a garden at the front. I recall my grandmother being shocked that people did that.
I would dearly love to line dry all the time, but the weather is rather unpredicatable in the areas I have lived, so I tend to indoor rack dry, or even (shock horror), hang things over the radiators to dry in the winter when the heating is on. When the house design permitted, I used to hang sheets, towels and washed yardage over the bannister and hanging down the stairs (not in current house which is a bungalow!). I don't currently have a tumble drier, and in the past only used it for slow drying things like sports socks, cotton undies etc. I'd like to have one in future, just so I have it within my drying options!
Indoors I hang tailored trousers, fleece jackets and shirts to dry on plastic hangers hanging off the bookcases. They hang off magazine racks and folders of sewing related goodness and then get hung straight up in the wardrobe.
