Lush Suburban Retreat

Rustic fire pit made of steel is placed within a stone circle, and set on crushed gravel. The area is backed up by a grapevine-covered trellis that holds a bench swing. A lime green painted adirondack chair and cobalt blue seating pillows add color accents.

Hi John--The circle is 14' diameter. The gravel is about 3-4" thick, and it's laid over a high quality landscape fabric that was tacked down with soil staples. Hope that helps!

Grapevine covered trellis - Hello, Could you please tell me who built the grapevine covered trellis? Are they here in the NW? It's absolutely beautiful! Thanks very much in advance.

Hi kporter25--Thanks for your question. The trellis was built by Drake's Seven Dees Landscaping out of Portland, OR. It provides privacy screening from the neighbors' yard, and also with the swinging bench seat it creates a cozy focal point for our fire pit area. A great evening gathering place!
