This large swimming pool with water jets includes a built-in hot tub and lava rock fire pit for the ultimate in outdoor relaxing. A nearby lounging area with diagonally set pavers complements the yard's striking geometric design, while verdant grass and white rose borders pop against the glittering blue water.
This inviting swimming pool is perfect for entertaining with a large stone deck and privacy fence. Guests can dry off after a dip in the pool by the large fire pit, or relax in one of three rocking chairs after a swim.
Prep your gel fuel by following the directions on the label. Remove lids and place 1-2 cans in the bottom of your fire pit. If your planter is deep, like ours, you may need to prop up the cans with small rocks and metal pails.
The deck was rebuilt because of water damage. That gave the client the opportunity to have it extended to create a grilling area immediately off of their kitchen as well as a fully screened patio on the ground floor.
For this project, you'll need a metal or ceramic rectangle planter with lip; glass sheet (not tempered) cut into 4 pieces; metal mesh; lava rocks; marine silicone; gel fuel; tape measure; tin snips; rubber gloves; small metal pails (optional for deep planters).
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.
