Dear illycatsupergalactic-ga,

The only descriptions we have of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon appear
in the writings of some Greek poets and historians, but even then, the
gardens existence is disputed. There is no archaeological evidence
which supports their existence, although some claim the outside walls
may have been found.

This excellent website by Pippin Michelli examines the evidence
relating to the gardens. It includes extracts from the original
sources and images. I recommend that you examine it in its entirety.

This question has already been asked here on Google Answers and I
refer you to the descriptions and sources given in that answer.

Additional discussion and sources.

As for their recreation. The descriptions are very general so you can
be fairly creative without fear of criticism. This site contains many
artists? impressions of the gardens and may give you some ideas.

I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
Thank you
