      Beijing, the capital of People's Republic of China hosted the Olympics of 2008. Among the other sites, the Gardens at the Beijing Olympics were one of the main attractions. The Topiary Gardens at Beijing stunned the visitors with their collection and the designs created with the help of trees, shrubs and various types of plants.

      The gardens at the Beijing Olympics turned heads with its amazing display of artistic botanical sculptures. This was especially done with the aim of preserving the biodiversity. These structures represented the beauty of nature that needs to be preserved by humankind. Through these structures the preservation message was conveyed to thousands of visitors coming to China during the Olympics. This unique endeavor referred to as the 'Home for plants', 'Gardens for humans' was the result of hard work of the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Committee, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Botanic Gardens Conservation International and Botanic Gardens Popular Network. These structures of the gardens at the Beijing Olympics were showcased during the months of July to September. Over 40 million plants and more than 500 species of flowers were used to decorate the gardens at the Beijing Olympics. Both the garden flowers and plants were used to decorate the Olympic Central Zone and the Capital Airport.
