The Kitchen Garden is not a garden located in a kitchen. It is a space separated from the rest of the residential

garden – the ornamental plants and lawn areas. Vegetable Gardens may be a little humble vegetable plot. It is a

source of herbs, vegetables, fruits, and flowers, but it is often also a structured garden space with a design based

on repetitive geometric patterns.

One of the most challenging types of garden is the Japanese Rock Gardens. These are a living work of art in

which the plants and trees are ever changing with the seasons. As they grow and mature, they are constantly

sculpted to maintain and enhance the overall experience; hence, a Japanese Garden is never the same and

never really finished. It is also known as Dry Landscape Gardens and often called “Zen Gardens” because they

were influenced mainly by Zen Buddhism and can be found at Zen temples of meditation.
