In a second modernity context where a process of city diffusion is taking place, with the establishment of an urban model based on the privacy through a majority presence of single-family houses, public gardened space plays an important role favouring collectivity and social relationships. But the concentration of these spaces in compact city areas limits its effects into the diffuse city, showing two models of individualization depending on the urban model. Furthermore, public gardened space has environmental impacts that should be known, especially in what water resources concerns. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze whether social benefits of public gardening could compensate or not for their environmental impacts.
