Victorian town house

The concept

Possibly the largest proportion of houses in the UK are the traditional Victorian red brick house.  With modest decoration over doors and windows these houses are typified by bay windows, slate roofs and simple decoration.

Planting should always be elegant and simply, think simple whites, such as Hydrangea quercifolia and double Aquilegias combined with late season Agapanthus.

Create the look

Our guide to styles which complement Georgian buildings suits anyone wanting inspiration for period properties,  from the early 19th Century and those simply who love the elegance of the time.

Keep paving simple, be inspired by large flags and riven finishes. Old Town and Old Riven are perfect traditional paving types but smooth contemporary natural stone paving such as Natural Slate will give a smart look as well. Remember the key is to accent colours in the building such as limestone cornerstones or to pick up the local stone colour in the paving you choose. Don't forget natural stone chipping are perfectly at home around Georgian houses as well for a softer feel.

Planting should always be elegant and simply, think simple whites, such as Hydrangea quercifolia and double Aquilegias combined with late season Agapanthus.

Paving can range from highly decorated mosaics to herringbone brickwork paths or simple traditional paving shapes.
