"As leisure time became more prevalent, Victorian gardens became a favorite past time of the middle and upper class. Gardening moved beyond the necessity of a kitchen garden and into a new arena of natural pleasures. Victorian homes may have been overdone with fussy bric-a-brac and large cascading ferns, but the gardens told a different story. The Victorian era came to be known as one of the great ages of gardening. Learn eight steps to recreating a Victorian garden in your backyard.

A Victorian Garden: The Lawn
Creating a lush carpet of grass takes hard work, constant attention to fertilizing, weed control, and mowing during the growing season. The Victorians were the first to treat the art of growing grass as a serious pursuit, so expanses of green in front of the home appeared ordered and neat. The back of the home revealed a lawn dotted with beds, gardens, but the lawn itself continued to reign supreme. A formal garden accented with the lush green of a lawn was a must.

Very interesting take on modern urban planning. The Honeycomb design concept.

"People like to live in cul-de-sacs. According to an American study by Eran Joseph in 1995, between the ‘grid’, ‘loops’ and cul-de-sacs, the latter were the most popular. In Malaysia, a developing country with per capita income a quarter of that in the US, only the rich can afford to live in a single-family house located in a cul-de-sac. How can the cul-de-sac be made affordable for more people?

First, we improve the cul-de-sac by making it bigger to be able to fit in a public green area in the middle because local planning regulations require 10% of any residential development to be open space. Then we create an interlocking arrangement of cul-de-sacs such that each building lot would face at least two cul-de-sacs. If the buildings in this layout were detached houses, they would be in the top range of the market. In Honeycomb housing, we sub-divide the buildings into 2, 3, 4 or 6, to create duplex, triplex, quadruplex or sextuplex units. As we divide the buildings, the land area and the built-up area become smaller; the number of units in the layout and the density of the development go up. The standard of finishes of the units can also be reduced. All these make the housing units less expensive. Yet every building still retains a public access. Furthermore, the quality of the external environment is not compromised – only that more units share it!"
