The Pool is Open at My Farm

I hope you’re all enjoying this Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial kick-off to summer.

As many of you know, I now have a pool at my Bedford, New York farm. It is located in a large paddock not far from my Winter House. I wanted the pool to look as natural as possible, where I could enjoy the panoramic views of the landscape with my family and friends. We started this pool project in October of 2016. And just recently, we planted a hedge of more than 170 columnar beech trees, Fagus sylvatica 'Dawyck Purple’, along the inside of the pool fence. So many of you have asked about my pool, and now that it’s open for the season, and the pool furniture from Restoration Hardware and the umbrellas from TUUCI are all out, I thought it was a good time to share some of the photos.
