[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There's a family relationship between the detectives. Try using that as a given in your thinking.

Hint Two
    The puzzle didn't specify the genders of the detectives. How might the answer and meaning change depending on the number of men and women?

Hint Three
    Suppose that two of the three detectives are a couple, and they have a daughter and granddaughter together. Does this make their connection to the last detective a bit more clear?

Super Hint
    If two of the three detectives are a couple and the last detective is their son-in-law, then the minimum number of people needed in the garden should become clear.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Try thinking about the possible relationships between the detectives themselves.

[edit] When Completed

You've cracked the case!

The answer is three people. If two of the three detectives are a couple and the last detective is their son-in-law, the conditions can be satisfied with only three people in the garden.

It appears the detective couple neglected to mention they also have a great grandchild in the garden.

[edit] Solution

There are three people in the garden.
