Removing the Burlap Around My Farm

This year’s spring burlap removal project is almost complete.

This week, my outdoor grounds crew is busy removing the rest of the burlap around the farm - in front of my Winter House, behind my Summer house, and along the Boxwood Allee. The entire process is a large undertaking. Every autumn, I cover all my boxwood shrubs and outdoor urns to protect them from the heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures. We use strong steel frames and custom fit burlap casings sewn by hand. And just before Easter, everything is removed to expose all the lush green foliage - it's a complete transformation.
