The entryway to the courtyard is so long that at first glance walking by you notice no green space. However a double take will show that there is indeed a small courtyard with homes facing onto the space.

Here there are small rectangular gardens that the residence maintain, running along the square in a geometrical pattern.

Some are quite tame with few implementations, while others are large and vibrant, publicly identifying the personality types of the people who tend them.
