Woodrow Wilson's mother, Janet "Jessie" Wilson, is said to have planned their new home's landscape. Garden design during the 1870s sought to extend a home's interior beyond its windows by arranging plantings in a way that was visually appealing to people indoors. The Woodrow Wilson Family Home garden was designed in this traditional Victorian style.
Typical Victorian yards were divided into private, working areas in the rear and public gardens in the front. Formal spaces featured large annual and perennial flower beds of bold colors, as well as ornamental trees and shrubs.
