Masonry walls and stone pavers lend a timeless feel to this expansive outdoor entertaining space. The residents and guests can gather at the round stone fire pit or in seating under the umbrella on the patio. The landscape design blends perennials and ornamental grasses.
This naturalistic, circular fire pit carved from local sandstone features a distinct design fitting with the nature preserve located behind the fence. Margie Grace of Grace Design Associates in Santa Barbara, Calif., won an 2015 Association of Professional Landscape Designers award for her design of the property in Goleta, Calif.
Homeowners Mike and Apryl really like the smell of a wood fire so the fire pit fits the bill. Paired with rustic rocking chairs, the stone fire pit adds warmth to the backyard oasis featured on HGTV's Yard Crashers.
