This paper deals with analyzing the extent of residents' satisfaction with the role of residential neighborhood gardens in the framework of enhancing the applications of the Quality of life program document.

Therefore, the research paper aims to elicit the most prominent problems facing neighborhood gardens from the point of view of the residents and within a framework of the Quality of Life Program document. This paper adopted the descriptive survey and field approach with the tools of observation. Questionnaire forms were distributed to a sample of (384) residents of the northern sector in the city of Riyadh as a case study.
