Label:These two prints illustrate 18th-century tools often used for landscaping. The first one shows different landscape designs using fencing and pergolas instead of hedgerows to define space. It also illustrates several decorative urn types and a flooring system that could have been used for a raised patio.
The second image shows a young woman with a lawn roller at her feet. Made of either iron or stone with a wrought-iron handle, the roller was used to even gravel walks and lawns in an effort to keep them smooth and well-groomed.
