- arches - Structural elements, typically curved, spanning openings and transmitting vertical loads to either side of the opening; also, structural elements or freestanding structures that resemble arches or act structurally like arches.
- baskets - Containers made of twigs, rushes, thin strips of wood, or other flexible material woven together.
- beehives - Receptacles for the habitation of swarms of bees. Natural beehives are made in caves, rock cavities, and hollow trees; some subgenera of bees have exposed aerial combs. The beehive's internal structure is a densely-packed matrix of hexagonal cells made of beeswax, a honeycomb. The bees use the cells to store honey and pollen, and to house eggs, larvae, and pupae. Artificial structures for beehives have been made since ancient times. Early artificial structures were made in a conical or dome-like form using straw or the like, but now artificial beehive structures are often square boxes constructed with movable compartments for the removal of the honey.
- buckets - Attachments for a materials-handling or excavating machine.
- flower - Material comprising flowers, which are the reproductive portion of any plant in the division Magnoliophyta (Angiospermae).
- flowers - The reproductive portions of any plant in the division Angiospermae, flowering plants. As popularly used, the term "flower" especially applies when part or all of the reproductive structure is distinctive in color and form.
- gardening - Activity or occupation of laying out or cultivating an area of plants, or other occupations involving horticulture.
- herms - Sculpture in the form of a head, bust, or half figure, supported by, as if growing out of, a gaine or tapering pilaster, sometimes exhibiting a phallus below; originally usually depicting the Greek god Hermes.
- hoes - Agricultural implements having a thin, flat blade usually set transversely at the end of a long handle; used for such activities as breaking up or loosening the surface of the ground, dislodging weeds, and covering plants with soil.
- putti - Motifs representing chubby, sometimes winged and naked figures of little boys, derived from Greco-Roman depictions of Eros. Common in art from Renaissance through the 18th century.
- rakes - Implements with teeth or tines for gathering loose plant material, such as cut grass or hay, or for smoothing the surface of the ground. Used in agricultural environments, gardens, landscaping, and other situations.
- shovels - Tools consisting of a broad blade or scoop used for taking up, removing, or throwing loose matter, such as earth, snow, or coal. Hand-operated shovels typically have the blade or scoop attached to a long handle. For long-bladed tools with shorter hafts and t-bars or handles to grasp, use "spades."
- sickles - Agricultural implements consisting of a hook-shaped metal blade with a short handle fitted on a tang. Similar in form and use to 'reaping hooks,' but distinguished from these by having serrated cutting edges, and the method in which they are employed.
- trees - Woody, perennial plants usually with a single, long, self-supporting stem or trunk, and which grow to a considerable height.
- urns - Large or decorative vessels, especially ones with an ornamental foot or pedestal, that usually have a mouth that is smaller than the body, and which often have two side handles.
