Hamptons Cottages and Gardens (oh my).

In this month's HC&G magazine, landscape designer Joseph Cornetta describes his latest project that, when he first saw it, resembled "Grey Gardens gone bad — only worse." It took three months to create the architectural garden he desired, resulting in a stylish, verdant escape that includes a boxwood topiary garden, a fountain made from an 18th-century Chinese pot and the Rusa Outdoor Collection from DWR. Adding to the fun, he also added a plunge pool. Happy summer.
