For medieval people, a garden was much more than a place to relax; it could be used as a way of earning money, a place to rear animals and even a source of medicine.
The medieval garden is a term that can cover a variety of different landscapes. While gardens nowadays are used mostly for leisure, for medieval people, the garden meant so much more.
