:“VIII. That shady '''Walks''' be planted from the End-[[View]]s of a House, and terminate in those open [[Grove]]s that enclose the Sides of the plain [[Parterre]], that thereby you may enter into immediate Shade, as soon as out of the House, without being heated by the Scorching Rays of the Sun. . .
<p></p>
:“IX. That all the Trees of your shady '''Walks''' and [[Grove]]s be planted with Sweet-Brier, White Jessemine, and Honey-Suckles, environ’d at Bottom with a small Circle of Dwarf-Stock, Candy-Turf, and Pinks. . . .
<p></p>
:“XIV. That the '''Walks''' leading up the [[Slope]] of a [[Mount]], have their Breadth contracted at the Top, full on half Part; and if that contracted Part be enclosed on the Sides with a [[Hedge]] whose Leaves are of a light Green, ’twill seemingly add a great Addition to the Length of the '''Walk''', when view’d from the other End.
:“For the second, the turf should be cut on a down, or [[green]], or [[common]], or sheep-'''walk''', where the ''grass'' is short and fine; if there be any knobs, or roughnesses, the place must be cleansed and rolled after a shower, before it be cut up. The turf is cut in [[square]]s, marked out with lines, raised with a knife, and rolled up; about three inches thick. The [[quarter]]s, or verges are to be prepared with a fine coat of poor earth to lay the turf on; and after laying, the turf must be well watered, rolled, ''&c''. . . .
<p></p>
:“GRAVEL '''''walk''''', in gardening.—To lay, or form a '''walk''' with ''gravel'', all the good soil is to be pared away, below the roots of any grass, or weeds; then the place to be filled two or three inches with coarse gravel unsearsed, laying it highest in the middle; then rolling it. . . .
<p></p>
:“Note, the sides next the [[bed]]s should be laid a foot and an half, or two foot with turf, from whence the heat of the sun cannot be reflected as from gravel, to the prejudice of the neighbouring flowers.”

:“[[ALLEY]]S are of two kinds. 1. The narrow '''walks''' which divide the compartments of the [[kitchen garden]]; and 2. Narrow '''walks''' in shrubberies and pleasure-grounds, closely bounded and overshadowed by the shrubs and trees. . . .
<p></p>
:“[[AVENUE]]. . . . These kind of '''walks''' were formerly much more the fashion than they are at present. . . .
<p></p>
:“GRAVEL '''WALKS''', like all other '''''Walks''''', (''vide'',) require a good substratum of drainage, and the facing of about five inches deep of gravel. It must have no stones mixed with it larger than good-sized marbles, and about one-fourth of it must be much smaller. If a portion of clay is by nature or art incorporated with the gravel, is will bind more firmly, and present when rolled a more compact and even surface. . . .
