There is some lamp black in the mix but it faded pretty quickly. No sealer.

Concerns with firepit - Do you have any issues with the pit being dug into the concrete like that? Did you have to line it with anything?

The fire pit is a hole in the concrete with gravel in the bottom and a drain that ties into the storm drainage.

Concrete Patio - Love this patio. I would love to install one in my home in Vancouver, BC. Are there any special tips/suggestions? Did you use rebar? What type of finish, etc. Any details that you can provide would be much appreciated.

There is woven wire mesh in the slab. It has a smooth trowel finish. We put lamp black in the mix, but should have put more in hindsight, it faded a lot. The control joints were put in the formwork. They have worked pretty well to reduce cracking. The fire pit is just a hole in the concrete, it has no bottom. Make sure you have positive drainage from your slab, ours puddles a bit.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to How to Prepare Your House for Emergencies
Take steps to prevent home fires. Home fires are all too common, and most are preventable. Key things to start with:• Place grills and fire pits at least 10 feet from house.• Regularly clean lint from the dryer.• Do not allow smoking in your home.• Inspect and clean woodstove pipes and fireplace chimneys annually.• Do not run electrical cords under rugs.• Have a pro replace old wiring, as well as any light switches that feel hot to the touch or connect to lights that flicker.
