Walkways, retaining walls, planters, and water features. Trees, shrubs, ground covers, perennials, vines, and ornamental grasses are provided and planted.

History and background

Gardening's history can be thought of as aesthetic representations of beauty through art and nature, as a demonstration of taste or style in civilized life, as an expression of an individual's or culture's philosophy, and as a display of private status or national pride in private and public landscapes.

In 10,000 BC, people began to enclose outdoor areas. Though the original garden's exact details are unknown, historians believe the earliest enclosure was a form of barrier designed to keep animals and stalkers out. Beginning in West Asia and moving westward to Greece, Spain, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom, garden construction and design was a forerunner to landscape architecture. The words "garden" and "yard" come from the Old English word "geard," which means "fence or enclosure."

Specifications and types of gardens

The Rock Garden, also known as a rockery or an alpine garden, makes heavy use of creviced rock/stones. The plants that thrive here are modest and demand well-drained soil with little water. The rock garden should appear natural rather than artificial. It can be prepared in direct sunlight or in partial shade.

Indoor gardens allow us to reconnect with nature and, in a sense, "bring the outdoors in." The foliage of houseplants comes in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colours, and they require less fertilizer. The majority of indoor plants are evergreens that demand moderate sunlight. The amount of light available at any given area varies depending on the season.

A flower garden is a collection of plants of various heights, colors, textures, and fragrances that engage the senses and please them. The majority of the time, it is planted for ornamental purposes. Your garden should be divided into three sections: trees, shrubs, and ground cover. Plants should be placed in raised beds, borders, and walkways.

What makes a landscaper different from a gardener?

Gardening, like landscaping, entails design, planning, and upkeep, but it usually solely concerns the plants in a place. Only gardeners will plant, weed, cultivate, replace, and harvest the plants. Landscape designers and gardeners can sketch a garden design and choose a plant list, but only gardeners will plant, weed, cultivate, replace, and harvest the plants.
