    Grammar

    I just need an explanation for this because a British teacher and an American teacher are a bit confused.
    Is it,
    at the garden or
    in the garden?
    I think it can be both.

    Yes, it can be both but meaning is different.
    I talked him at the garden when he was standing there with someone. (near the garden)

    I could not talk to him because he was in the garden watering the plants. (inside the garden)

    Would you meet me at the garden?
    Let us have our meeting in the garden

    It depends on the context. For example,


    • We looked at the garden. The flowers were so beautiful.
    • We looked in the garden for the lost rabbit.


    What is your sentence?
