Thanks for the question. Overall the firepit is about 2' wide and 4.5' long. It is gas, there is an underground line run to it.

That grass is a Japanese forest grass called Hakonechloa macra. It does well in the Northwest.

The lower patio is made up of concrete pavers dryset over a sand bed. They are not sealed.

who designed the porch/patio stairs? - I have a small raised (20") back porch that I would like to extend into the yard to use as a patio for a small table and bench. My garage is locates catty-cornered off to the side of the back door approximately where the bump out on this house ends. Then there's a back door from my bedroom that directly faces the garage entry door.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 21 Patios Ready to Party
Karaoke party. The upper terrace would make a great stage.
Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to Clash Course: Design Comes Outside to Play
Everything looks better against a dark color, and if you restrict the palette, your space will look cohesive but edgy. Add a jolt of the unexpected — the wonderful pink chair in this case — and you've mastered the art of clashing.
2. Consider steps and pathways between outdoor rooms. Part of what makes outdoor rooms work well is the way you travel from one part of the space to another. Consider adding stairs, terraces, gravel paths or stepping stones between outdoor rooms. Or change the material underfoot — pavers in one area; pea gravel, concrete and grass in others.
