‘Gardens are peculiar, hybrid spaces: part private, part public. In one sense they appear to exist as part of the public realm:…they are conceived and constructed as partially private extensions of the home dwelling. Gardens are located close to spaces within the home which have been conceived as private, domestic, ‘feminine’ zones - the kitchen and the dining area for example. On the other hand, the garden is an interface between the privacy of the house and the civic property of the street. It is a space onto which others can look, examine and judge’
