A garden is simply an area where plants are grown.  Whether these plants are food-bearing, flowering, herbal, or otherwise is a matter of opinion and personal preference.  Gardens can be decorative or functional, or both, but are normally purpose-built, however, can incorporate natural / wild growing plants and trees (a Zen garden at the edge of a natural forest).  Gardens can be in-ground, raised beds, pots, hydroponic, aquaponic, hugleculture, or a combination of any of the various methods or techniques, or something that you create yourself.
