In the past few decades, the construction of China has developed so fast that it has also brought about many problems. For example, many old communities with high-density are short of public space and supporting facilities, thus a community without vitality is formed; while there still exist so many urban spaces on the boundary, idle and passive, the urban spatial form is showing a "fragmented" state, and the issue has attracted widespread attention. The renewal of Changwu Community (namely Changli Garden) is a project which renovate the wall of Changwu Residential District, and it is located in such a high-density community as mentioned above. TM Studio transforms the 350-meter "fragmented space" into a linear garden according to local conditions. While dividing the community and surroundings, it creates opportunities for communication between the two, providing sharing space, forming a "Sharing Boundary" of community. This article analyses 3 methods of traditional gardening used in the project, "Meandering", "border", "framed scene, separated scene and borrowing scene", and discusses the application of traditional gardening methods in "Sharing Boundary" of community, and the relation between them, so as to shape "Sharing Boundary" of community, stimulate the vitality of streets and provide methods for sewing urban fragmented space.
