The gravel path was created along my normal route so no one had to retrain me. I love that the slate nuggets don't get stuck between my toes and Mom's really happy now that I don't drag mud into the house! ... Bailey the dog.

In the rose garden, the bluestone chip pathway is neatly raked weekly, while granite pavers lining the hand-pruned boxwood are checked and cleaned of any invading grasses. The roses are regularly deadheaded, fertilized six times per season, and treated when necessary for fungus and insects. The standard lilacs that anchor the space are also pruned regularly.
