New Paths in My Perennial Flower Garden

Another exciting garden transformation is complete at my Bedford, New York farm.

I have long wanted to use up hundreds and hundreds of black granite bricks that I originally purchased for a terrace floor project. Over the years, some of the bricks were used sparingly under pots for drainage, but most of them remained in crates stored alongside my stable barn. I knew one day, I would figure out how best to utilize them - and I did. One-third of the bricks now edge the footpaths in my expansive perennial flower cutting garden, giving the entire space a whole new look. The process was tedious and took more than a week to complete, but it looks fantastic.
