A Victorian garden offered elegance and convenience to gardeners when this garden were first installed over 100 years ago. To create a Victorian garden, here are several ways for you. First of all, plant a fine blade grass for your lawn, the most important element in any Victorian garden. A picturesque Victorian garden will have a perfectly manicured lawn that looks and feels like soft velvet. For brand new lawns, have rolled grass installed by professionals, or fill thin patches in your current lawn with seed. Make sure you keep your lawn properly mowed and edged to create a sharp, clean Victorian look. Plant shrubs along pathways, to define property lines or to hide the foundation of your home or porch. Carefully manicured shrubs may also be used to hide an unsightly fence or to frame doorways or large windows. Consider an ornate cast-iron fence with an elaborate gate to accentuate the Victorian style of your garden. While picket and wood fences were common during the Victorian era, they were almost always hidden under shrubs or vines.
Cast-iron fencing was definitely the most popular, and present in virtually all Victorian gardens. Select a wide variety of garden ornaments to create a classic Victorian atmosphere in your garden. Seating is also important in your Victorian garden, and might include stone benches or cast-iron furniture. Plant classic Victorian flowers in your garden in neat flower beds, along walkways or in window boxes. Roses, tulips, pansies and snapdragons were some of the most popular flower varieties of the era. You might also consider a trellised archway with climbing roses.
