Room with a View
Just look at that view! The classic styling of this fire pit patio design is purposefully simple to avoid detracting from the surrounding lakeside vista. The paver walkway incorporates natural stone textures that blend effortlessly with the surroundings. A circular landscape wall defines the space and sets it off as a destination spot. The weathered stone used for the fire pit and wall makes it a timeless viewpoint for carefree boatwatching. Columns add a finished look and enhance the “outdoor room” aesthetic.

Ok, how cool is this?! For those who enjoy a leisurely game of chess by the fire pit…well, this custom patio would more likely inspire an aerobic game of chess ending with a shout of “checkmate” from across the cobbled chessboard. The natural variegated color blends of the individual cobbled pavers add visual texture that really brings the chessboard pattern to life. The fire pit itself is made of simple classic wall blocks to keep the design from looking too busy. The arched shape of the fire pit adds a lovely effect that helps it blend seamlessly into the design. Product: Appian-Stone® pavers.
Time comes to a standstill in this lovely backyard destination spot. The stone-like textures of the hardscapes pair with natural stone and wood to create the aesthetic that this fire pit patio was carved directly out of the mountainside. Products: Celtik® Wall and Dublin Cobble® pavers.
