According to Webster's Dictionary, the word 'garden' is a noun. It comes from the Middle English word 'gardin', from Old North French, and is of Germanic origin; akin to Old High German gart enclosure, from the 13th century. Current definitions:

1)a plot of ground where herbs, fruits, flowers, or vegetables are cultivated b : a rich well-cultivated region c : a container (as a window box) planted with usually a variety of small plants

2)a public recreation area or park usually ornamented with plants and trees <a botanical garden> b : an open-air eating or drinking place c : a large hall for public entertainment.
