Abstract: In view of the increasing population diversity, changing demographic profile and increasing pressure on land resources, it is necessary to obtain a better understanding of the provision of green open spaces in Singapore’s public housing estates. As such, this study investigates the usage patterns and perceptions of residents staying in public housing estate with precinct gardens and landscape decks. Analysis was conducted via observations, surveys and informal interviews on the two selected study sites – Havelock View and Ghim Moh Valley. Additionally, statistical methods such as the one-sample t-test, Pearson correlation as well as chi-square test were incorporated to determine the significance of the findings. Even though most residents were in favour the type of garden in their estate, it was revealed that the landscape deck in Ghim Moh Valley was seemingly more frequently used, better perceived and obtained greater satisfaction from its residents. Nevertheless, several pertinent issues concerning both types of garden exist and these were compiled and presented in the study. Since the concept of landscape deck is relatively well-received by HDB dwellers, housing planners may consider to adopt this elevated space model for future developments. Consequently, valuable land (ground space) can be set aside for other germane purposes.
