Multi-use Custom Patio Design with Shade Arbor and Fire Pit
Today's clients want more out of their patio spaces that just an extension of their back porch. With a well thought out plan, clients can get several uses out of their patios based on season or change uses day to day. This patio contains a central arbor structure that is flanked by a seating wall. To the right of the arbor is a semi-circular seating wall that contains a fire pit in the center, to use on those colder winter nights. In the summer, the same space can double as a space for patio furniture and chairs. To the left of the arbor is another seating wall with space for a portable barbeque pit and a walk that leads to an adjacent garden space. The entire patio is constructed of brick including the seating walls and the arbor is constructed of pressure treated lumber. In the drawing shown below left you can see that their are two raised brick planters that flank the left and right seating wall. These will be added in another phase of the project and will be planted for a lush affect to the garden space.
