All in varying heights the gardens are placed as small, individual and living laboratories. On the other side of the hedges are the interconnected series of common grounds, which serves as an open meeting ground for both the garden owners and the visitors.. On the one hand it is a spatially changing landscape where movement not only leads to continuous shifts in perspective and vision, but also a growing sense of changing spatial depth. On the other hand the individual gardens are shaped by a variety of usages and activities that reflect the individual garden owners needs and desires in everyday situations. The landscape is constantly subject to a continuous process of change and in an ongoing state of becoming something else. Every garden is both an individual laboratory and a visually available micro-landscape and what in one scale is experienced as a high degree of openness towards self-organization and complexity is in another scale experienced as a high degree of organization and order.
