"Burlapping" Boxwood Under the Long Pergola

The season's burlap project at my Bedford, New York farm continues at my long and winding pergola.

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. This entire project takes weeks to complete, but it's almost done. And just in time - winter officially begins today.

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