    grounds

    Does "grounds" mean "the whole property of a building or house", while "ground", just "soil"?

    =================================
    Mercutio and Benvolio are looking for Romeo,

    but Romeo canít stay away from Juliet anymore, so ↳not~anymore(더 이상~않다)
    he has jumped over a wall and entered the grounds
    of her house, the Capulet property.

    It is not ground, but grounds. The grounds of a property are the areas that do not have buildings on them.
