Urban gardens tend to be located in urban and developed areas, they usually are in the middle of cities or old un-used plots of land. The basis behind an urban garden is to be able to grow your own fruits and vegetables and support the slow food movement, while having fun at the same time!
Regardless, they are both can be defined as gardens.
Urban gardens are by definition in an urban area, and thus have to take into account environmental factors that rural gardens do not. The first and foremost of these factors is surface area. A rural garden, typically, is not nearly as geographically constrained as an urban garden; it can spread, take advantage of unused or under-used land, and grow as large as the labor and resource-means of the person gardening it.
Urban gardens, on the other hand, are severly constrained by space. Though some people do it purposefully – see the geurrilla gardening link below – planting and raising plants on another’s property without permission (even if unused) is illegal. Most people living in urban areas thus have to rely on their very small holdings – typically rented properties. That still leaves many options, however. Community gardens are one popular solution, though people have become creative on even smaller scales: roof gardens, vertical planting, and hydroponic gardening (no need for soil!) have become mainstream gardening methods for the urban landless.
