Abstract:Twenty seven designs for a Hawaiian garden to replace a city parkscape were collected for spatial analysis in light of the Hawaiian renaissance and the increasing availabilty of native plants valued by Hawaiians. What constitutes a Hawaiian garden is discussed together with its historical antecedents. Gardens contained predominately native plant species that were of a utilitarian and cultural nature. Fifty percent open space, groves, clusters, groundcovers, collections and rows were common plant arrangements. Large rocks, protected places to sit and space to gather plant material were included. Most gardens required an increase in maintenance. The number of species ranged from 4 to 110.
