Thanks for the sharing and explaination. It gave me a clearer picture for different terms.i would say that gardens are things that don't include lawns, wooded areas, bushy plantings that aren't really maintained and various other things often including rusting cars on blocks and random bits of towing chains, hubcaps and bits of wood stacked at odd angles.
aka grasses (even ornamental sounds mental to me as i do not like grasses much at all and don't want them in my gardens) are lawns and backyards or the yard in general is often more considered the grassy areas and not the flower beds or vegetable patches.
now for the really fun part things get very interesting when you consider permaculture and food forests and other edible shrubbery and such. those i do actually more consider gardens than many other things that people do. i for one don't really consider a rock garden a garden at all. it's mulch, decorative or not, and i do like rocks so it's not like i'm biased against them (see the website for pics of how much we do like rocks )...
i hope this helps, or perhaps helps confuse things further?
I have no love for the nice and pretty lawn, it has too little fun for me. Ppermaculture and food forest concepts attract me very much and might be one major reason I decided to have chickens, and consider now to have few bee hives next year.
