Removing Burlap from the Boxwood Allee

This year’s spring burlap removal project continues at my long Boxwood Allee.

Last week, my outdoor grounds crew removed the burlap in front of my Winter House and behind my Summer House. Then they tackled the burlap along the Boxwood Allee that's located outside my stable and runs all the way down to the carriage road leading to the woodland. The entire removal process is a large undertaking which takes several days to complete. 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 every spring, everything is removed to expose all the lush green foliage - it's a complete transformation.
