Extensive Definition

A flowerbed is an element of many gardens. A flowerbed is a garden area especially prepared for growing flowers. The area is typically marked off, often by low-lying structures of brick or similar materials, designed to highlight the flowers and reduce the spread of weeds. These structures can often be elaborate, as in the formal gardens of Shalimar or the Taj Mahal.
