The Criswell Residence design features a front courtyard for parking, as well as multi-purpose use for overflow of guests at gatherings. It features thermal flagstone wet laid with mortar joints including black jumbo belgian block curb set in concrete footing. The sitting wall by the front of the house holds an elevated bed mulched with river rock and holding a tiered fountain. New grand pillars have been added by the entrance to the courtyard by the inlaid belgian block apron set in concrete. A new retaining wall facing the street holds the courtyard and will feature similar veneer stone as the home. Many large trees intruding the house will be removed and re-worked including shrinking the beds by the house. All the landscape will be mulched using a designed pattern of 3/4-1" river rock, 1-3" river rock and 3/8" red tipple stone.
