A garden is a plot of land set aside for the growing of plants. Gardens differ from farms in that gardens tend to be smaller in size, generally only approaching a few hundred square feet at their largest. Gardens generally fall into one of two categories:

  • Vegetable gardens, which are usually maintained by a small amount of people (such as an individual or a family) for the purpose of providing food. Many of these are simple, backyard gardens, although the practice of community gardening is growing in urban areas. These gardens generally only contain edible plants and plants with edible parts.
  • Decorative gardens, which are usually very landscaped and are used to enhance the aesthetic value of a building or plot of land. The plants in decorative gardens rarely have the primary purpose of providing food, and instead are chosen for their visual qualities. Flowering plants are common in many decorative gardens. Decorative gardens may include other items with pleasing visual qualities, such as fountains or ponds.

In desert areas, a landscaped collection of rocks is often referred to as a rock garden.
