This study aimed to obtain state of private gardens relevant to the installation of private, ground-level gardens at mid-to-high-rise residential complexes by investigating residents' usage and perceptions of such gardens. The satisfaction rate among users of private gardens at the residential complex was found to be about 70%. The presence of private gardens was a contributory factor to moving in for about 70% of residents, and a similar proportion would choose a residence with private gardens when moving. Similarly, about 70% of residents entered the private gardens virtually every day, with frequency tending to increase with age. Usage frequency also tended to be high in the first year of residency,showing a further upward trend as the number of years of residency increased.
