Similar to the interior of their house, the Wilsons' yard was separated into public and private areas. The front garden featured a formal and ornamental landscape style intended for visitors and passersby. Private, utilitarian needs were met behind the house away from the public eye. The property's gardens largely reflected 19th-century landscape theory. Like their residence, the Wilsons' landscape choices may have drawn from the ideals of Andrew Jackson Downing. An avid reader, Mrs. Wilson may have consulted his pattern book, A Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening, in laying out her property's gardens and work areas.
