What do you mean by "largest" ???

Do you want the widest rectangle ?

The longest rectangle ?

How about the rectangle with the most area ?

The length can be anything less than 20 ft, and the width can be anything less than 20 ft.

Any of those shapes will have an area greater than zero.

The rectangular garden with the greatest possible area is a square, 10 ft x 10 ft.

Its area is 100 square feet.
