In this middle ground enriched by paradox a lot of the gardens resemble small groves on the outside, often with the hedge as part of the groves edge, as its outer boundary. But while the individual gardens are experienced as groves from the in-between spaces, they are partly experienced as a series of integrated clearings from inside of the individual gardens themselves. In this forest of clearings the unique character lies thus not only in the individual gardens or in the spaces in between, but in the relation between them that can be characterized as “dynamic processes, always in transition, always unfinished.� a forest of clearings

Towards the north action-oriented exchanges takes place in the interface between the allotments and the forest edge of the nearby forest Dyrehaven. An exchange, which brings the mode of production found in the gardens into the in-between space of the ellipses and which connects both the formalism of the overall scheme and the informal designtaking place in each garden with the larger scale of the forest in Dyrehaven. The allotments are thus double coded and loosely structured in common use but more tightly bound in particular situations.
