It's kind of a difficult question as costs vary so wildly for place to place.

Classic Teak (J & M DecorationsInc.)
You can visit Classic Teak (in Dublin or the huge warehouse in Hayward - call for address)) for lots of table variations to. We inset the pedestal portion so you can comfortably seat more people on the 60" round. Great prices too!

Consult your local electrician as to the best way to handle your specific site conditions.

I'm certain that was the right solution for your project, however, due to the steep slopes and clay soils in northern California often the geotechnical engineers do not want to introduce surface storm water into the areas above below-grade living spaces, especially when these spaces may have been developed prior to more current building techniques or they simply don't know what the sub-drainage conditions are. The average slope for the project in the pic is over 35%, the patio is located above the home which has below grade living space. Not all projects have the same solutions. Specific site conditions drive our designs.

These were pagodas my client bought on a trip through Malaysia. We fitted them with LV lights. It's a relatively easy technique. Your electrician can help you turn most anything into a light fixture!

A lot of landscape designers are not comfortable dealing with structures and architecture (fireplaces). This is a small yet highly detailed garden. We worked with a structural engineer and a very "hands-on" contractor. This team approach made for a successful result. When putting your team together look for the skills you need for your specific site and program: you may need a design-build company that is a general contractor not just a landscaper. You may want to consult with an architect if you need to make modifications to the building. Check on line for landscape architects in your area and look at their sites. I'm sure you'll find someone that can help.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Strike up a festive mood with string lights. Outdoor café lights strung from tree to house and back again create a lively atmosphere in this backyard. A round dining table and a curvy outdoor sofa gently divide the space into two seating areas, providing ample space where friends and neighbors can mingle under the stars.
Just across the bridge and down more steps is the outdoor dining area and intimate fireside lounge. The outdoor kitchen lies between the main house (right) and the new garage (left).Italian string lights twinkle overhead and landscape lighting illuminates the ground. The designers turned several of the family's sculptures (one is on the lower right here) into low-voltage light fixtures.
String lights illuminate a front-yard patio in Mill Valley, California.More tips:Make sure your lights fit the style of your home.Use a variety of lighting for the best effect.Don't forget small light sources, like candles and lamps — these are particularly great for intimate porch spaces.Low-voltage landscape lights are a great option for front yards.Solar lights vary widely in their effectiveness and quality. Don't use them for security purposes, as the amount of light offered is not adequate.Avoid spacing lights too closely together — your lighting professional should be able to space them out to give you the light you need without going overboard.LED lighting, rope lights and Christmas lights can all create more special, subtle effects for your front yard.More: The 3 Top Ways to Light Up Your Landscape
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to What Kind of Gardener Are You? Find Your Archetype
The extrovert. This type of gardener is all about celebrating friendships and gathering people together. For this gardener plants take on the role of supporting actors for the productions that occur. Hardscaping becomes the stage; the set usually consists of colorful furniture, cushions and the quintessential grill or outdoor kitchen. The story of this garden lies in the people who gather here.More about “extroverted” gardeners
