Maintaining the Carriage Roads

It's very important to keep up with the maintenance at my Bedford, New York farm - especially the four miles of carriage road that meander around my homes, my gardens, my pastures, and through the expansive woodland.

Every year, my outdoor grounds crew edges all the roads to make sure they are neat and tidy. This summer it was also necessary to re-cover the roads with a fresh layer of gravel. Once the 3/8-inch native washed stone was dropped, it had to be spread evenly, so the gravel was level and properly graded on the surface. Over the last several weeks, Pete Sherpa and Fernando Ferrari took on the tedious task.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
