Demonstration Gardens

Demonstration gardens, sometimes referred to as learning landscapes or teaching gardens, are a collection of plants assembled and organized in a manner that allows garden visitors to access and study them. Most gardens are designed with a particular focus and include plants that support the purpose and educational theme of the garden. Examples of demonstration gardens include gardens that feature a type of plant, such as trees or wildflowers, or gardens that highlight plant uses, such as for medicine or food. A garden can also demonstrate an entire functional landscape, such as a Florida-Friendly landscape or a firewise landscape, through the arrangement and use of particular plants.
