One issue we are running into here is differing meanings of the word 
"garden".  In US usage, a garden is an area set aside for deliberate 
cultivation of plants; in UK usage, the entire area of land surrounding 
a house is a garden, whether you are cultivating plants, have it covered 
in grass, or are just letting it grow weeds.  I suspect there are 
probably several other meanings of "garden", when you look at world-wide 
usage of the English language.
