I have been working on my new yard and have this undeveloped area that needs attention.The problem is that I have no idea of what to do with it. I already have a grass area for the kids to play, I got planters for the wife.And where that slab is I will be building a outside kitchen bar for me with a porch/pergola combo.So any ideas would be great. Maybe a deck? Not sure how that would look. What you guys think?

I would add a pergola over the area with some giant colorful pottery with plants. Bring in some nice patio seating;)

Be sure to keep that sod watered.

Nice little area you have there. Get some furniture. Lounge chairs and table with umbrella for dining.

Add some poles around the perimeter and use string lights to add a magical touch at night.

How about a croquet set?

How about a low level deck with a possible firepit in the middle of it.?

Hello Jvasquez1599

The pergola would be a great addition and a deck would be even better. Having said this, it is a very low to the ground area with minimal ventilation. I suggest covering the entire area with concrete and laying some deck tiles on top of that. It is an easier and safer way to achieve the wood deck you want that will last for a very long time.
Here are some picture so you can get a clearer idea.

Hope this helps you on your renovation

Those tiles are very nice and unique.I might just consider that.The Pergola I'm looking to build is actually on the stamped concrete area Not the dirt area.I didn't know a low level deck needed ventilation. Thanks!
