|Children experience the world differently from adults, and
gardens are no exception. This presentation will review a study of how
elementary school-age children perceive gardens. What are children's
preferences for place elements, colors, activities, and design? Moreover,
how are these perceptions influenced by a child's stage of development?
To conclude, areas for future research and methods for practical application will be identified.
