My Boxwood Room Update!

Those of you, who’ve been reading my blog for the past three years, may recall one of my early postings about installing a boxwood room on the backside of the summer house.  I’m happy to report that the wall of boxwood is growing beautifully.  For various reasons, that project was put on hold and I’m so excited that finally, ground breaking is imminent.  My plans for this area include stone paths and a pavilion, so of course, I called my trusted stonemason, Carmine Luppino, of Luppino Landscaping & Masonry.  Over the years, Carmine and his terrific crew have done so much work at the farm and he always seems to know just what I want.  Before reviewing plans for the boxwood room, I wanted to go over some other issues that will require Carmine’s attention.  If you’d like to see a video about Carmine and where he gets a lot of his stone, click here and then go to More Video Clips from This show and scroll down and click on Stone Resources video clip.
