Large open pallet! Wide open for ideas!!!:) we have 2 fire pits already installed. The pit off the patio is a long rectangle. The other one behind the garage is a large square which in the area we are wanting to incorporate a pergola cover off the garage w/sitting area/kitchen/ & possible hot tub. We want a pool to be the center of attention in the backyard also. NEED IDEAS!

Golden prairie grasses everywhere of varying heights. That stay. Use pampas grass as "islands" to add height dotted around but keep,with the grasses interspersed with natural planting so you get flowers in spring and summer.

This is a major project that considering the scope of you should considering hiring a professional to at least draw up the plan, even if you install it yourself or have it installed in stages. Having worked with a large space before I would make the following tips: think about evergreens for year round color, maybe even magnolias depending on your area. Looks like you need lots of trees too. Since you don't have any, I'd recommend with starting with some fairly large ones, as it will take too long for them to grow to add the structure you need. A good landscape architect should give you lots of ideas. Good luck! Your home is beautiful and sounds like you really are wanting to enhance it with the landscape and hardscape!
