Victorian Gardens
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     The Victorians liked pretty places. They furnished the interiors of their homes with colorful, decorative furniture. They painted the outsides of their homes in rainbow colors with plenty of white trim. They also liked to decorate their gardens.
 
2     Designing a Victorian garden might still be fun. You could collect an assortment of pretty plants and objects and combine them to make your own charming outdoor space. When your garden is finished, it will be a fine place to entertain some friends or maybe even take a stroll with a boyfriend or girlfriend.
 
3     To start, you will need a yard, let's say the back yard of your Victorian home. Most likely you will fence in your yard if it isn't already fenced in. Ornamental cast iron fences are popular. Picket fences are not so popular. If your yard is already fenced in by a picket fence, you might want to disguise it by planting shrubs in front of the fence or by planting vines that can wind through the pickets. If there is a plain part of your house or a small building out back that spoils the look of your yard, take care of that with more shrubs or vines, too.
