There were a large number of ideas in that one “High Victorian” garden…so let me focus on a few of those as well as a few others of different style….
I liked this quietly landscaped sideyard for a couple reasons. One is the inclusion of a fringe tree, which is not a widely used ornamental tree, but very choice in my opinion. It also uses grasses effectively. And everyone likes to see a city yard kept well trimmed, so it is pretty on all three counts. Not to say I don’t like messy and overflowing ( which is how I garden) but I like the small city gardens that have both personality AND neatness, instead of trading off one for the other, as is often the case.
This one is also very tightly mown and trimmed… but it was the combination of fence and gate styles along with that inviting little Anderondack type chair that I liked.
Now we are back in the court of the cottage style. A sweet garden ornament with a lantern and lots of flowers.
City sidewalks in a small town are nothing like big cities, all is still open and friendly. This is the entry to the big High Victorian place, and the next picture is (one) of the porch(es)facing the main street. You get bunting and flowers, garden seats, wall stars… urns…. well, you can see for yourself.
