elements of a lawn

most gardens consist of a combination of natural and constructed factors, although even very ‘herbal’ gardens are constantly an inherently artificial advent. herbal elements present in a lawn mainly contain plants (along with trees and weeds), fauna (which includes arthropods and birds), soil, water, air and light. built elements include paths, patios, decking, sculptures, drainage structures, lighting fixtures and buildings (such as sheds, gazebos, pergolas and follies), but also residing structures inclusive of flower beds, ponds and lawns.
