Describe your dream garden.
Given space and money, I'd have two types of gardens. The garden in the front would be an English-type garden, full of flowers and color. It would be more wild looking than it would neat - flowers overflowing over fences, wildflowers popping up everywhere full of color, trellises flowing with blooms. It have containers full of mixed flowers, and also windowboxes.
The backyard would have a Japanese water garden, replete with pond, koi, pond plants, stepping stones, a small curved bridge crossing the water, Japanese maples all around, a fountain. It'd be neat and clean and there'd be a few places to sit and enjoy the garden. That's where I'll have my morning cup of green tea. :-)

A Chinese Garden. Everytime I'm in Sydney I go to the Chinese Garden and I adore it. Its so full of tranquility with waterfulls, religous symbols, flowers, silence, its just an amazing place. I absolutly love it and I usually go there like the day after I arrive in Aus, it just makes me calm down a bit after the long flight!
Ooh... this is a fun one! My dream garden is a mixture of different things that all work together into a paradise for wildlife. It has a small fish pond, with flowers planted all around it. Stone paths lead to other 'specialty gardens'...
... a rose garden with all different kinds and colors
... an 'old-fashioned' area filled with phlox, hollyhocks, sweet peas, snapdragons, and other traditional favorites
... a shady area for pansies, impatiens, and other shade-loving perennials and annuals
... a completely 'wild' corner--all wildflowers and whatever else grows naturally
There's a bench in each part of the garden and a birdbath or other garden statue, and feeders here and there. I want a garden that looks lived-in, rather than picture-perfect.
If money s no object I would love a English Country garden that is filled with flowers, bushes and trees that bloom with every season. There will be little 'rooms' where you could sit and enjoy your surroundings. One room would have a quiet pool of water with a gurgling waterfall. Another may have a private hottub surrounded by tropical plants. Another would have a slate patio with table for intimate meals. Above it it would be a garden filled with quiet, hidden surprises and tranquil beauty.
