Synopsis: Sure, we know about flower gardens, but when it comes to all the various styles of gardens that we can build, cultivate, grow and nurture, it is just the tip of the iceberg. Let's catalog, clarify and include photographs of the home and yard with the garden choices we have.

In English houses, gardens are a staple. In fact, 78 percent of English homes have private gardens in their front and back yards, the English Housing Survey 2008 reported. Dubai, on the other side, holds the world's largest greenhouse. Named the Fairy Garden of Dubai, it contains over 45 million flowers.

Another world-class garden renowned for having the largest and most extensive botanical and mycological collections in the world is Kew gardens. It's so precious that it has its own police department that has been patrolling the garden since 1847, known as the Kew Constabulary.

Similarly, now especially during the lockdown, we have been lot more involved in independent activities such as gardening, cooking, and trying to be more creative, especially during the no workdays. For many people, these creative activities have now become their full-time passion as well.

Talking about creative and decorative ideas, here are some ideas which can help us decide to make our home’s backyards much more decorative:

  • Vegetable gardens: The vegetable garden is perhaps the most common type of garden that individuals look at. It can be a lot of fun to cultivate vegetable gardens, and one would actually be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Unlike any of the other styles of the garden that will be included on this list, apart from basic visual appeal, one will find that vegetable gardens have a lot of advantages to them. We might theoretically use the vegetable garden to provide vegetables for our family.

Growing enough food to feed a whole household will be very challenging, but many people appreciate reducing the number of vegetables they have to purchase at the supermarket with their gardening efforts. There is also something really attractive to persons who care for the climate. Every passing year, environmental issues become more and more real. A way one can reduce carbon emissions is to eat the freshest veggies available and to be able to stop purchasing boxed products.

  • Container gardens: For individuals who do not have the ability to plant more conventional garden areas, container gardens are very handy. Container gardening, as one would expect from the term, includes planting items in various containers. Crop pots, tubs, totes, drums, and several other types of containers may be such containers. Within the bag, sufficient quantities of soil are deposited and then planting is begun.

Often, right on their balconies, people make small container garden areas. This can be very helpful since one would be able to step outside and as fast as a possible check on them easily too.   It might be wise to keep the container garden close to the building, but one would be able to easily position it elsewhere. Some persons also plan to do container gardens indoors.

The idea that one can use containers that would not usually be used for gardening purposes is one of the fascinating facets of this sort of gardening. We should make sure that all irrigation problems have been dealt with if we plan to use anything like a barrel or a tote.

  • Herb gardens: In the past, in order to keep ingredients on hand that could be used to produce medication; many people enjoyed cultivating medicinal herb gardens. Given the developments in medical medicine, for these reasons, people very much do not really cultivate herbs in their backyard. However, there are those who are into natural herbal methods, and they like to maintain medicinal herb gardens in the old ways and make medicines. This is obviously an alternative, but it is not something that many individuals do.

To cultivate herbs that are used as cooking ingredients and spices, modern herb gardens are more commonly used. Growing the own herbs would guarantee that each cooking will have new ingredients to use. It can be very rewarding to be able to use new seasonings in pasta sauces and other dishes. It's not all that hard to cultivate herbs, either, so the advantages are probably worth the work people may have to put in.

  • Raised Gardens: For people who live in places that do not have fertile soil, raised gardens are very necessary. When we try to start a greenhouse, it can be disappointing and people figure out that the soil just isn't up to standard. There are ways we can plan and enrich the soil so we can make use of it. The soil is so poor occasionally that this is not extremely practical, and we are better off looking for an alternate strategy.

In order to construct a garden field, creating a raised garden would give all the space people need. It's going to behave like the walls of a new greenhouse. One can buy fertile soil that will fit well for the types of plants that we want to place in the garden once we have constructed the field.
