Landscape architect Rick Griffin of Griffin & Egger Landscape Architects gets credit for transforming what had been a boring, empty yard. “The cheapest thing you can ever purchase is good advice,” notes Yandell. “Rick took one look and immediately knew what to do.”
A Series of Rooms
To the left is the dining area, which is clearly defined by a table and chairs sitting on a painted wooden deck. Behind the table rests a spa. A few steps to the right of the bar is the fire pit. An outdoor fireplace, decorated with items Yandell acquired in the Southwest, dominates this sunken garden room.
