Outside your old house

The vintage yard and garden

Old houses come with old yards and gardens. Your old home may have had a vegetable garden, herb garden, lawn, small orchard or fruit plot for rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries, and even space for a small chicken coop.

Land, even a small city yard, was occasion for homeowners to celebrate and enjoy regardless of decade or century. Our collection of articles have been taken from old books and publications long out of print. We hope you enjoy reading them.
