Covering My Terrace Boxwood Shrubs and Hedges with Burlap

The season's burlap project at my Bedford, New York farm continues in front of my Winter House.

As many of you know, I've been covering shrubs and hedges with burlap for many years to protect the branches from splaying and even breaking from the weight of snow and ice. Every season, our wrapping methods become easier and more streamlined, giving me peace of mind during the cold weather months. At the end of last week, we covered the boxwood on my terrace parterre and around the corner outside my green parlor windows.

Here are more photos of our "burlapping" process, enjoy.
