Finalized before and after landscaping pictures: Back Yard Fire Pit

The back yard fire pit is done.  I am very pleased with it and I finally got pictures that were during the day for you all to see.  Here they are.

 

This is the before pic. of my fire pit area

At this point, I had built the stone wall three times and the fire pit twice.  Both are finished now and it is time for the flagstone patio.

Here I am after finishing the flagstone patio.  My wife caught me looking off into nowhere. HAHAHA

Here is the final product.  The repositioned stone table, stone wall, natural stone fire pit, and flagstone patio are finished.  They all fit together perfectly according to the landscape design.

Here is a closer view for all who are curious.  The flagstone is laid on 1/4 minus crushed rock and then the same it packed between the stone.  It later dries to be very secure.

      Yes i can. And I am so glad that you said it looks like a park. This is kind of my goal. I want to have a 2 acre park as my yard. A beautiful place where when people come over or drive up it instantly says, “Hey, this is a place of beauty and peace.”

    Looks great and represents thousands of calories burned. Double bonus!

    Jason, you are looking skinny!! Next time “fat Jason” starts talking in your head, pull this picture out and tell him to SHUT UP!
