any suggestions for a fire pit on a wooden deck? do not want freestanding.

    Marnie, Thank you for your question. Depending on the deck height, it would be possible to integrate a fire pit similar to the one shown. It would need to be a gas firepit. Also, a self contained portable firepit with a propane tank might work. I hope this anwers your questions.

    Here's a couple of examples of a fire pit on a wood deck. These are the natural gas type with the gas line actually coming up through the bottom of the deck directly into the fire pit. They both actually came out quite nice and the customers are very pleased with the result.

    To add some warmth for those seated around as well as WOW to your fire pits, consider adding our Artistic Steel Logs. A new and very unique custom solution for gas fire pits and outdoor fireplaces.

    Take a look at these images and feel free to visit our website/Houzz for more info/pics.

    Hello All, so sorry for the delay, we have missed several of these questions! This project is located in Sammamish, WA. The colors that Belgard offers in the NW are Toscana and Victorian (with a few exceptions depending on the type of paver). The pavers in this photo are indeed the Victorian color. Thanks for the question!

Can this stone be used for an interior kitchen?

  • PRO

    The patio surface wouldn't work for interior surfaces as it installed on a gravel and sand base. It is used for outside use only. But the fire pit stone is natural and it could be used for interior applications.

    Hi Nana, on this project we used Belgard Mega Lafitt. The color is Victorian. I'm sure you can get it in Ghana, but shipping / freight may be cost prohibitive. The colors are regionally specific, so there are different colors available in the US depending on what part of the country you live in.

    Hi sbusta20, that's a really tough question. Colors can be so subjective, we really can't give advice on that topic without seeing the colors in person. I would recommend "google-ing" house color combinations and looking at examples online, or going to a Sherman Williams or other local paint store to look at examples there. Good Luck!

    Hi jeanpope, thanks for the question. This residence is located in Washington State (the Pacific Northwest). Depending on the part of Arizona you are building, this style of outdoor room may or may-not work. I think it would depend on the architecture of your home, as well as the surroundings. The plant material would definitely vary. Hope this helps, best of luck with your new home!

    hi almmlm, that's a tough question, especially without being able to see the space. We really couldn't make an informed opinion on your specific application. It seems like an absence of curtains would lend itself to a more modern feel, but I'm sure some of the interior designers on HOUZZ have their own perspectives. On another note, curtains on outdoor structures can be a great addition!

    Hi cushopn, thanks for your question. This structure is a free-standing overhead that has post spacing of roughly 14' x 14'. It can be beneficial to have the structure free standing vs. attached to the house because you can avoid disturbing / modifying the structure of your roof. If you attach the structure to your house, you'll likely need to get a builder or architect / engineer involved (which can get expensive). Unfortunately we can't give you advice on the pitch of the roof on your proposed structure... that is something we look-at on a case-by-case basis and give recommendations based on the pitch of your current roof / other architectural ques that we might see on site. Hope this helps!

    Hi Toby, thanks for the question. It's so tough to give a quote based on a photo... each design is different and unique in so many ways. If we were to separate out just the overhead structure, it would run in the range of $20-$25k or more depending on lighting, electrical, heaters, etc. Hope this helps!

Can you identify the sealer (manufacturer) used on the pavers?

  • PRO
    Alderwood Landscape Architecture and Construction
    Hi oaktonwanda, these pavers are actually not sealed... they were wetted-down with a hose for the photo shoot. You might contact your local Belgard dealer and ask them what Belgard recommends as a sealer for their pavers. In most cases, we recommend against sealing because of the on-going maintenance concerns. Once you seal pavers (or concrete), most companies recommend you strip and re-seal the surface every two years.

Depending on your location, you may be able to take these photos into your local outdoor furniture retailer and see if they recognize the manufacturer. Hope this is helpful.

    Hi sdp0513, thanks for the question. Our gas plumber specially fabricates the burners on a project by project basis, so each one is unique to the size & shape that our clients desire. We use ceramic log-sets and lava rock to try to mimic the look of a natural fire.

    Hi sanctuary home, sorry I don't have the log set manufacturer. Our gas plumber typically handles that portion of projects for us. I know they are ceramic logs, and are specifically selected for natural gas's burning, the size of our fire ring, and for outdoor use. Hope this helps
  • jtman9200
    I like how close the fire pit is to the rest of the patio. I think a common mistake is when the fire pit is placed far away from where everyone that isn't around the fire will be. Great design with the rocks as well. They look really great being mostly uncut. http://www.patioworldnsw.com.au

    Hi Laxie, thanks for the question. Well, one way to create this type of space would be to hire us! :) The fire pit itself is built with a cmu base, then clad with a natural stone. The gas burner is custom made by our gas contractor, and it is finished off with black lava rock and a ceramic log-set. The pavers surrounding the fire pit are made by Belgard. Hope this helps!

    Hi Kendraslk, thanks for the question! The stairs in this photo are a natural flagstone product (similar to the stone used on some flagstone walkways / patios, but bigger & thicker). The color of the flagstone stairs ties-in nicely with the paver color and basalt boulders that we used on this project. To answer your other question, we would absolutely travel to Renton (and across the northwest) for the right project. Some smaller projects are not a great fit for us, but for the right project / major landscape renovations (outdoor rooms, paver patios, fire pits, water features, etc.) & those clients seeking their very own 'Back Yard Resort,' we'll go just about anywhere!

Are the patio pavers "tumbled" or not? Thanks!

  • PRO
    Alderwood Landscape Architecture and Construction

    Hi krosenthal, thanks for your question! The pavers used on this project were not tumbled. Tumbled pavers typically have very rounded edges and the finish is scuffed on purpose. This type of patio lends itself to a more rustic / weathered feel. Non tumbled pavers typically have a cleaner look, but are certainly more sccuptable to scratching / surface damage that might occur during installation. Tumbled pavers are already "scratched", so you don't have to be as careful with them during install. Hope this is helpful!!

    HI timsteele88, typically, the utilities are installed to a rough center-point first (gas and possibly electrical). These are stubbed-in and left to build around. Next, we would prep the ground with compacted gravel and paver sand. After the pavers are installed, our mason would build a short cum wall right on top of the pavers, then clad it with natural or cultured stone. Next, a cap is installed on the wall, and the gas plumber installs the gas burner & pan. If the pit has electric ignition, that is also completed. Lastly, lava rock and a ceramic log-set are installed.
