Victorian Garden & Cast Iron
Victorian & Cast Iron
Cast iron fencing, cast iron lamp posts, wall lanterns and Victorian lighting was most popular in the Victorian time because of the ornate design that could be incorporated. Most properties would be fenced and well lit whether they were city or suburban dwellings or large formal estates.
Victorian Garden Pride
More rustic picket fences might be employed, but these would generally be hidden by shrubs or vines. Shrubs might also be used to hide an unsightly foundation, but for the most part, Victorians were proud of their homes and did not seek to cover them up with plants.
The Victorian Garden
Victorian gardeners also believed that plants could deteriorate the house if they attracted insects and decay, so gardens became a distinctly separate affair.
