Transforming the Paths Under My Winding Pergola

Thousands of black granite bricks I bought years ago are finally being used at my Bedford, New York farm.

I originally purchased the bricks for a terrace floor project, but that never happened, and instead, the bricks remained in three large crates stored alongside my stable barn. If you follow me on Instagram @MarthaStewart48, you know I used one-third of them to line the footpaths of my large perennial flower cutting garden. I also showed photos of how the rest of the bricks were used to edge the long path under my winding clematis pergola. Both areas now look entirely different - more formal and more manicured. The project took several days for my outdoor grounds crew foreman, Chhiring, to complete, but he did a great job and it looks wonderful.

Enjoy these photos.
