ABSTRACT Green spaces that make important contributions to the sustainable development of cities; urban areas that are proven to improve the quality of life of users. However, nowadays, cities are over-concentrated due to various direct and indirect reasons, and the areas that need to be allocated to public green spaces are decreased, and the existing areas are occupied by other uses. In addition to occupying the green areas within the cities, it has also started to use the fertile lands around it in terms of its concretization. As a productive landscaping area, it is necessary to include the urban gardens in suitable areas of the city. In addition to facilitating the access of the city to clean food, urban gourds positively affect the quality of life of the city as a result of creating habitat for natural life, carbon retention to reduce the greenhouse effect, added values ​​to cultural and visual landscape. Trabzon is a city in which the urban gardens exist unconsciously. In many piece of land, users use these lands for agriculture. Although these uses vary, landscape values ​​are different. In this study, the landscape value and visual perception of the 5 urban gardens in Trabzon city center were examined. The aim of this study is to determine the most ideal urban garden typology for the city of Trabzon by determining these spontaneously developing values ​​in the city and to create a public urban garden project for the city. Thus, we focus on sustainability solution with local resources; urban agriculture model that provides economic, social and spatial improvement and contributes to local value has been created.
