Fire Pit Patio

This was an insane project – 6 day gang buster weekend – May long weekend 2016.

I love our back yard, but I also hated our back yard.  There was nothing going on – golf course style.  The plus side – it’s a blank canvas.

Pinterest is costing me a lot of money – lol.  I found a few good pictures to work off of and we came up with this:

Before:  (We had to rent a sod cutter – clay dirt is impossible to dig) – we used a hose to paint the outline – cut all of the grass out.

Bricks laid – filling with dirt (See  the little pine on the left) – this was a wedding favour from Mike’s cousins’ wedding – Jeff & Mel Flaherty 🙂

All of the dirt is in – walkways installed:

After – Jackson likes it too!  We mulched it with black mulch and picked up a whole bunch of trees/plants.  I transplanted a lot of the perennials from my garden.  This is our “Up North Fire Pit Patio”  We love sitting out there around the fire.
