Spring Farm stone Wall Reconstruction

In the summer and fall of 2011, the OBP crew reconstructed a large retaining wall at the Spring Farm in Colrain, MA. The historic wall, originally built on sloping ledge, was failing in numerous places. It was reconstructed with the original stones and split into two terraced levels for gardens. A water collection system was installed next to the house to direct rain and melt water off the slate roof away from the foundation to the garden area.
