Establishment of a garden is the first stage of landscape gardening.

Role

A garden can be developed by the following categories of people :

  • by the residents of city areas.
  • by the residents of village areas. And,
  • By the professionals.

After the establishment of a garden, it needs to be looked after very well. This is an important duty of a gardener or the owner of garden.

Gardens are managed very well by the professionals because they have all necessary tools to manage the garden.
