Stone Wall and Espaliered Fire Thorn
For this Boston-area former hunting lodge, featured in Outside the Not So Big House by Julie Moir Messervy and Sarah Susanka, JMMDS created a landscape design that anchors the house in the site and complements its Tuscan-inspired architectural update. An Italian father-and-son stonemason team built the granite walls. An orange-berried scarlet fire thorn (Pyracantha coccinea) is espaliered to grow flat against the wall, giving the courtyard a European touch. (Photo: Grey Crawford.
