when do we say:
"I'm going to the garden."
and "I'm going in the garden."
Can we say either? If so, is there a difference?
Good day to you....
We always use TO with go. How can you move inside the garden and say I m going in the garden. If you are moving inside the garden , you will say I'm walking in the garden or I am roaming in the garden or strolling in the garden.
So , going in the garden doesn't make any sense to me.
Use of a preposition sometimes depends on how you think about it. One can always say: He is going in the field and will cross it after few seconds.
The preposition “To” is usually used with verbs of movement, such as: move, go, transfer, walk/run/swim/ride/drive/ fly, travel.
It can be also used with other verbs also, as: Take me to the airport, please.
‘In’ can be also used with verb ‘go’ as: Will you go in the draw to win a Prize?
