Fire Bowl in Lush Mountain Landscape

A movable fire bowl nestled into newly established colonies of bayberry, winterberry and fern extends the use of a Maine garden beyond dusk. Slabs of lichen and moss-covered granite are used as benches and form a firewood crib. The property is within Acadia National Park along the west edge of Somes Sound on Maine’s Mount Desert Island. Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design won an American Society of Landscape Architects award for the entire project.
