apartment rental rights

I have been renting an apartment since Mar 2010. My contract states it comes with a private garden. That same contract authorized the property owner to be represented by a 3rd party who was acting as apartment complex manager (he no longer holds this position though is still living on site).

The owner now wants to change the contract to 1) omit the 3rd party manager and 2) remove the clause about my private garden - he wants to remove our fence too (that we paid for) so we no longer have a private garden.

What are my rights here? Or where can I find out about my rights?
