Garden city is inspired by Ebenezer Howard, a stenographer and writer. In his book called To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform published in print in 1898, he offered a vision of social and political reform by transforming existing cities into interrelated network of garden cities. Garden cities are supposed to have agricultural estates surrounding it. A typical garden city could house a population of 20,000 to 30,000 with additional couple of thousands to tend to the agricultural side.
This ideal is said to be beneficial to every sector in the long run. This could be the solution to housing shortage. It could also provide the construction boost for the economy. Most importantly, it is said to benefit the environment and help preserve whatever is left of it and nurture it. The involvement of the agricultural side in the outskirts of a garden city with lots of trees and greenery and shrubs lining the streets is actively promoting care for Mother Earth.
Howard’s idea of the garden city almost materialized way back in the 1900s. He was able to receive support to develop this idea and make it a reality. He almost thought that it was the start of a massive movement from the government so he published another book in 1902 to sustain the movement. Comparing this ideal to today’s reality, it is needless to say that Howard’s idea did not push through. Instead of a garden city, there are city gardens all over the state. These city gardens act like miniature forests in the center of a busy street. Regardless of their purpose, they are refreshing to the eyes of the people who pass by.
Even though the idea did not fully materialize, there are still town planners who are trying to make Howard’s ideals a reality. This is why there are garden city homes for sale; a way to revive what everyone thought was once a lost brilliant plan.
