Garden design is the process of creating plans for the layout and planting of gardens and landscapes. Gardens may be designed by garden owners themselves, or by professionals. Professional garden designers tend to be trained in principles of design and horticulture, and have a knowledge and experience of using plants. Some professional garden designers are also landscape architects, a more formal level of training that usually requires an advanced degree and often a state license.
Elements of garden design include the layout of hard landscape, such as paths, rockeries, walls, water features, sitting areas and decking, as well as the plants themselves, with consideration for their horticultural requirements, their season-to-season appearance, lifespan, growth habit, size, speed of growth, and combinations with other plants and landscape features. Consideration is also given to the maintenance needs of the garden, including the time or funds available for regular maintenance, which can affect the choices of plants regarding speed of growth, spreading or self-seeding of the plants, whether annual or perennial, and bloom-time, and many other characteristics. Garden design can be roughly divided into two groups, formal and naturalistic gardens.
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.
