Once you arrive in Bali it is easy to lose yourself in the uncontaminated territory, but you are equally fascinated by the work of man who has bent nature to his own uses, restoring grace and elegance to the landscape. However, there is another green space in Bali, less large than rice fields or lush forests, equally important, which manages to speak of tradition, aesthetics and sociality: the telajakan. The telajakan is the garden of houses in Bali, a strip of greenery between the wall of a residential building and the pedestrian path. The distance from the road body is variable, dictated by the rules of the traditional architecture of the island and is generally around two metres. This area has multiple functions such as providing plant and floral materials for Balinese daily rituals, regulating rainwater, and can be occupied by street vendors if necessary. The plants are used as protectors, as cover crops (for example coconut trees), for religious ceremonies, to obtain spices also for medicinal purposes, or simply for their aesthetic-decorative function with ylang-ylang flowers, frangipane, hibiscus and cempaka, an infinite variety that promotes natural regeneration.
