Some gardeners manage their gardens without using any water from outside the garden, and therefore do not deprive wetland habitats of the water they need to survive. Examples in Britain include Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight, and parts of Beth Chattos garden in Essex, Sticky Wicket garden in Dorset, and the Royal Horticultural Societys gardens at Harlow Carr and Hyde Hall. Rain gardens absorb rainfall falling onto nearby hard surfaces, rather than sending it into stormwater drains. For irrigation, see rainwater, sprinkler system, drip irrigation, tap water, greywater, hand pump and watering can.
Other outdoor spaces that are similar to gardens include: - A landscape is an outdoor space of a larger scale, natural or designed, usually unenclosed and considered from a distance. - A park is a planned outdoor space, usually enclosed (imparked) and of a larger size. Public parks are for public use. - An arboretum is a planned outdoor space, usually large, for the display and study of trees. - A farm or orchard is for the production of food stuff. - A botanical garden is a type of garden where plants are grown both for scientific purposes and for the enjoyment and education of visitors. - A zoological garden, or zoo for short, is a place where wild animals are cared for and exhibited to the public. - A Kindergarten is a preschool educational institution for children and in the very sense of the word should have access or be part of a garden. - A Männergarten is a temporary day-care and activities space for men in German-speaking countries while their wives or girlfriends go shopping. Historically, the expression has also been used for gender-specific sections in lunatic asylums, monasteries and clinics.
Most gardens consist of a mix of natural and constructed elements, although even very natural gardens are always an inherently artificial creation. Natural elements present in a garden principally comprise flora (such as trees and weeds), fauna (such as arthropods and birds), soil, water, air and light. Constructed elements include paths, patios, decking, sculptures, drainage systems, lights and buildings (such as sheds, gazebos, pergolas and follies), but also living constructions such as flower beds, ponds and lawns.
