Nils Jonsson-Rose's Lawns and Gardens helped late-Victorian readers improve the appeal of their homes through the beautification of their lawns and gardens. In this book, the author covers such landscape gardening topics as drives and walks, flower beds, hedges, orchard and kitchen gardens, and trees. Originally published in 1897, it includes more than 150 plans and illustrations by the author."
