This chapter analyzes the garden and the baroque uses of space in Annapolis. It first addresses three issues related to the Paca Garden, namely its unequal widths, the map of its renovation, and the tastes of the people involved in its creation and management, and then examines the rules for placing houses and the garden's layouts. The next section focuses on the other gardens in Annapolis, including the Carroll Garden. The chapter also discusses the city plan, complete with several sketches.
