Fire Pit

I love a backyard that everyone and anyone can relax in. I get great ideas from pictures like this. Just build in some bench seating that can hold four or five people and then bring in as many chairs as you want for everyone else. I would probably sit on the stone right beside the fire because I am always so cold. Others could sit on the stone or the steps. And don’t forget one or two relaxing in the hammock. I’m from the south and I would really enjoy this setting as the evening cools off after a hot summer day (without a fire of course.) But the spring and fall would be my favorite times of the year and then I would have a fire. Where I live now, on the coast of California, we use fire pits all year because it is always cool in the evening. A backyard like this with beautiful stone work would work in a yard with a very colonial style home, a cape cod home or a very modern home. I have also seen this in many desert style homes such as those often seen in Arizona.  In short the style could go most everywhere and be used during more than one season in most parts of the county. I love a lot of the backyard ideas that can be found at:
