Brick Patio with Fire Pit and Water Feature
Restoring Function to an Outdoor Entertainment Space
The goal of this project was to restore functionality to an old outdated wood deck that was no longer suitable for entertainment. Being in the back of the house, the old wood deck was always in the shade. This left the deck wet and slippery throughout the day making it unsafe to use and entertain guests on.
Since this was such a large patio there’s plenty of room for two tables, a grill, and a couple built-in features for extra entertainment value. A brick fire pit adds a durable feature to have fires with friends on a cool summer night. This along with a small water feature makes for a tranquil and relaxing place to entertain or relax after a long day of work.
Building a new brick patio was a long term investment that benefits in extra durability and safety.
