A garden is a planned space, usually outdoors, set aside for the display, cultivation, or enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature.
The garden can incorporate both natural and man-made materials. The most common form today is a residential garden,
but the term garden has traditionally been a more general one. Zoos, which display wild animals in simulated natural habitats,
were formerly called zoological gardens. Western gardens are almost universally based on plants, with garden often signifying
a shortened form of botanical garden. Some traditional types of eastern gardens, such as Zen gardens, use plants sparsely or not at all.
