Cutting Sod to Expand My Pergola Garden

The gardens at my Bedford, New York farm are constantly evolving.

This summer, I decided to make some changes to the beds underneath my winding clematis pergola. I wanted to create a long row of boxwood on both sides to add more bold, green color and texture to the space. This is a big multi-stage project - one that requires several days to complete. Earlier this week, my outdoor grounds crew began the process of removing the sod from the new planting area. 

Here are some photos - enjoy.
