• Yes I definitely agree. I have 2 lawns and a cactus garden and container gardens with Veggies growing. +3
  • Quite a clear difference, yes. A lawn involves an expanse of cultivated, mown grass. A garden involves plots of cultivated plants of other types (although it might have ornamental grasses as a component).
  • A lawn could be part of a garden, but it would be the part where the grass grows; a lawn without a garden would be only grass, and no other plants.
  • Well yes, a lawn is grass or weeds, should be green, usually dry and yellow in my history. A garden is something you design in a way, flowers, plants, vegetables, etc. Something you do for enjoyment.
  • 100% AGREE!!! Lawn is green grass and a garden is where you grow veggies and stuff! +5
  • Most definately. I can't remember the last time I used a lawn more on my carrots, tomatoes and other veggies.
  • it depends in what sense, some people would argue, that thier garden includes a lawn, for instance, you wouldnt call a gardener a lawner ?
  • a lawn is a specific kind of garden that grows grass. had you said flower garden or vegetable garden, then i could say, yes, one is grass one is vegetables. so, no there is no difference, because the other garden could be a grass garden.
  • well in my mind there is ! :)
  • yes a lawn does'nt have a fence round it.
  • Very much so.....I answered your question about "Do you have a lawn" and I replied with 3 acres of that question was migrated to "Do you have a garden" ...sounds like I said I have 3 acres of garden....which I don't.
  • 100%.. A lawn is what it is, a stretch of maintained and tended grass. We are different about the word garden in the UK. A garden (in the UK) is the 'yard' which consists of a lawn and flowerbeds.. perhaps other kinds of landscaping and features also. It is the whole thing. The part of the garden that flowers grow is a 'flowerbed' the vegetables grow in a 'vegetable patch'.
  • inv +6 Yes, in my opinion, a lawn would be just grass; while a garden would contain flowers or vegetables.
  • Yes; so your question about having a lawn, shouldn't of been merged with a garden question. My answer remained the same because I have both, but that certainly might not be the case, for all that answered your original question.
  • A lawn can fom part of the garden, I wouldn't call a lawn a garden:0)
  • There is a clear difference if you are an American.
  • Yes, there is a clear difference. I saw that my answer about having a lawn merged with the garden question. I sent feedback that I thought they were not duplicates.
  • Yes there is 100 percent difference. Lawn is where is green grass and garden is where you grow vegetables or your stuff
  • 1) A lawn could be a part of a garden, so if I were looking at a lawn, I might sometimes also be looking at a part of a garden. 2) "A lawn is an area of recreational or amenity land planted with grass, and sometimes clover and other plants, which are maintained at a low, even height. The specialised names turf, pitch, field or green may be used, depending on the sport and the locale." "Lawns are a standard feature of ornamental private and public gardens and landscapes in much of the world today. Lawns are created for aesthetic use in gardens, and for recreational use, including sports. They are typically planted near homes, often as part of gardens, and are also used in other ornamental landscapes and gardens. Lawns are frequently a feature of public parks and other spaces. They form the playing surface for many outdoor sports, reducing erosion and dust as well as providing a cushion for players in sports such as football, cricket, baseball, golf, tennis, bocce and stake. Many different species of grass are used, often depending on the intended use of the lawn, with vigorous, coarse grasses used where active sports are played, and much finer, softer grasses on ornamental lawns, and partly on climate, with different grasses adapted to oceanic climates with cool summers, and tropical and continental climates with hot summers. It is also not uncommon to mix grass seeds. A 50/50 mixture of grass types can, for example, form a stronger lawn when one grass type does better in the warmer seasons and the other is more resistant to colder weather." Source and further information: 3) "A garden is a planned space, usually outdoors, set aside for the display, cultivation, and enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature. The garden can incorporate both natural and man-made materials. The most common form is known as a residential garden. Western gardens are almost universally based around plants. Zoos, which display wild animals in simulated natural habitats, were formerly called zoological gardens. See traditional types of eastern gardens, such as Zen gardens, use plants such as parsley. Xeriscape gardens use local native plants that do not require irrigation or extensive use of other resources while still providing the benefits of a garden environment. Gardens may exhibit structural enhancements, sometimes called follies, including water features such as fountains, ponds (with or without fish), waterfalls or creeks, dry creek beds, statuary, arbors, trellises and more. Some gardens are for ornamental purposes only, while some gardens also produce food crops, sometimes in separate areas, or sometimes intermixed with the ornamental plants. Food-producing gardens are distinguished from farms by their smaller scale, more labor-intensive methods, and their purpose (enjoyment of a hobby rather than produce for sale). Gardening is the activity of growing and maintaining the garden. This work is done by an amateur or professional gardener. A gardener might also work in a non-garden setting, such as a park, a roadside embankment, or other public space. Landscape architecture is a related professional activity with landscape architects tending to specialise in design for public and corporate clients. The term "garden" in British English refers to an enclosed area of land, usually adjoining a building. This would be referred to as a yard in American English. Flower gardens combine plants of different heights, colors, textures, and fragrances to create interest and delight the senses." Source and further information:
