Abstract

Gardens have always been seen as places stimulating well-being and pleasure. This feature emerges from the dynamics of these peculiar ecosystems. In the present paper these dynamics are analyzed in the framework of recent approaches to self-organization. The role of the different components of a garden is examined.
