Merging Garden design and Garden designer
But both sections are likely to grow.
I don't agree: Wikipedia has separate entries for Architect and Architecture, Physician and Medicine, Law and Lawyer, Actor and Play. It should also have separate entries for Garden Design and Garden Designer. ::Willow4::

Merged from Talk:Formal garden
Is the intention here to describe the French formal garden that was introduced at Anet, its parterres developed by the Mollet family, its extensive axes perfected by André Le Nôtre at Vaux-le-Vicomte and Versailles and carried through to the end of the eighteenth century in Continental European royal and aristocratic gardens, and later revived among Beaux-Arts garden designers at the close of the nineteenth century? "Formal garden" would otherwise include the Persian and Moorish gardens, the villa gardens of the Italian Renaissance, and the formally laid out medieval hortus conclusus with its central well. All of which deserve individual articles.
- Yes, I'd notice; yes, I'd care. The words "formal garden" always bring England to my mind--I think of modern formal gardens, like the one in Central Park before I think of Versailles, for example--Versailles is, well...Versailles.
- If you know enough about the history of formal gardens to write articles (or at least intelligent stubs) about the formal gardens of different countries/localites/whatever, I'd be pleased to read them, but you would still need formal garden. Why not just expand (sections) here?

- I'll stick to more specific aspects of garden history, and take this catch-all off my watchlist, then. --Wetman 06:12, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
Merged from Talk:Residential garden
It has been proposed that Residential garden and Home gardens be merged. The merge templates were not correct, I did not make the merge proposals but I have fixed the templates and created this discussion heading in one (not both) articles. --Chris Jefferies (talk) 22:19, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
I suggest that these articles should remain separate. Although both need a great deal of improvement and development, they deal with very different types of garden.
'Residential garden' is clearly about the ornamental and/or fruit and vegetable garden typically found around dwelling houses in western countries. These are primarily small spaces used by single families for relaxation. They are often ornamental, or for small-scale food production, or both.
'Home gardens' concerns small horticultural areas in tropical and subtropical, mostly third-world countries. These are usually in small forest clearances and are rarely ornamental in nature, instead supplying intensively cultivated food crops for subsistence purposes.
I therefore recommend that both articles are retained and the merge proposal removed once sufficient time has elapsed for all interested parties to comment. --Chris Jefferies (talk) 22:29, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
I completely agree with Chris Jefferies. These are clearly articles on two distinct topics and should not be merged. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Columbiabotany (talk • contribs) 01:29, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
More cosmopolitan and less provincial?
- I guess this page is low-traffic and not edited by very many editors. I think part of what you are reacting to is the emphasis on US-based organizations, which can certainly be fixed. I've also got the feeling that there's a matter of tone (kind of genteel in a vaguely British way), but I cannot put my finger on what, exactly, to change. --Tryptofish (talk) 19:22, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
