The study emphasizes the development of the rural space from the central eastern side of Arges county, using the temporal dynamics of the value of the synthetic index of rurality, applied to the village Botesti during the time gap 2002-2010. The rurality coefficient, whose value is ranging between 3 and 6 was calculated based on the labor force of the agricultural employees and the population of the village in a certain period of time. These indexes are relative and they show the position of each administrative -- territorial unit. The rurality coefficient is based on the calculation mode of the human development coefficient. During the period 2000-2005 the index of naturality was for the entire village 57.1 % and during the period 2005-2010 it was 54.9 %. The human pressure on the environment by the use of the lands has the largest impact upon the landscape pending on the utilization way predominant in the unit of relief analyzed with fruit trees, meadows and hay fields (hectares).
