Don't put the key to happiness in someone else's pocket. But there is always a little corner that keeps flapping around.
Zoological garden Environmental impacts of gardens[ edit ] Gardeners may cause environmental damage by the way they garden, or they may enhance their local environment. Damage by gardeners can include direct destruction of natural habitats when houses and gardens are created; indirect habitat destruction and damage to provide garden materials such as peatrock for rock gardens, and by the use of tapwater to irrigate gardens; the death of living beings in the garden itself, such as the killing not only of slugs and snails but also their predators such as hedgehogs and song thrushes by metaldehyde slug killer; the death of living beings outside the garden, such as local species extinction by indiscriminate plant collectors ; and climate change caused by greenhouse gases produced by gardening.
Watering gardens[ edit ] Some gardeners manage their gardens without using any water from outside the garden, and therefore do not deprive wetland habitats of the water they need to survive. Rain gardens absorb rainfall falling onto nearby hard surfaces, rather than sending it into stormwater drains.
Climate change and The garden edit ] Climate change will have many impacts on gardens, most of them negative, and these are detailed in 'Gardening in the Global Greenhouse' by Richard Bisgrove and Paul Hadley.
Greenhouse gases can be produced by gardeners in many ways. The three main greenhouse gases are carbon dioxidemethaneand nitrous oxide. Gardeners produce carbon dioxide directly by overcultivating soil and destroying soil carbon, by burning garden 'waste' on bonfiresby using power tools which burn fossil fuel or use electricity generated by fossil fuels, and by using peat.
Gardeners produce methane by compacting the soil and making it anaerobic, and by allowing their compost heaps to become compacted and anaerobic. Gardeners produce nitrous oxide by applying excess nitrogen fertiliser when plants are not actively growing so that the nitrogen in the fertiliser is converted by soil bacteria to nitrous oxide.
Gardeners can help to prevent climate change in many ways, including the use of trees, shrubs, ground cover plants and other perennial plants in their gardens, turning garden 'waste' into soil organic matter instead of burning it, keeping soil and compost heaps aerated, avoiding peat, switching from power tools to hand tools or changing their garden design so that power tools are not needed, and using nitrogen-fixing plants instead of nitrogen fertiliser.
A landscape is an outdoor space of a larger scale, natural or designed, usually unenclosed and considered from a distance. A park is a planned outdoor space, usually enclosed 'imparked' and of a larger size.
Public parks are for public use.
An arboretum is a planned outdoor space, usually large, for the display and study of trees. A farm or orchard is for the production of food stuff. A botanical garden is a type of garden where plants are grown both for scientific purposes and for the enjoyment and education of visitors.
A zoological garden, or zoo for short, is a place where wild animals are cared for and exhibited to the public. A Kindergarten is a preschool educational institution for children and in the very sense of the word should have access or be part of a garden.
