There are several requirements need to meet to design campus garden. Firstly, the garden needs to be built with suitable distribution and acreage. The garden with too much acreage can hardly be used as efficient as a small one. One important characteristic of campus garden is to ensure people can use every inch of land of garden. To meet the diverse educational needs, there should be several different green areas with different features in a university. The accessibility is an important part to the campus garden. The green areas located between the buildings without a gate (not a close region), can increase the possibility of people go to gardens. Finally, the green gardens should not have a negative effect to the whole campus transport.
