    Alexey, we don't recommend sealing rocks or pavers actually. Sealing pavers will enhance the colors, but it also begins a never-ending loop of maintenance (seal, strip, seal, strip, etc.). We like to leave our pavers un-sealed. That being said, we do wet-down the pavers and rocks for our photography :)

    Is this a wood burning fire pit with a gas line? Also, what are the dimensions of this fire pit? Thanks!

    Hi aehaile, thanks so much for your kind words!! On this project, we used pre-cast concrete pavers made by Belgard (Mega Lafitt style paver in Victorian color). Below is another photo of this project where you can see more of the flatwork.

    Hope this is helpful! Please follow our page when you have a moment. We will be uploading new project photos over the next several weeks.

    Yes, this is a gas fire pit with a high BTU stainless steel insert and custom natural stone coping and face stone which nicely complements our style and landscapes. Thank you for your interest in Alderwood Landscaping on Houzz!

3. Invest in a fire pit. There’s nothing quite as alluring as a fire feature to anchor an outdoor seating area — particularly in the darker, cooler months. Fire features provide both light and warmth, adding life to outdoor rooms and creating a reason to get outside. For this backyard patio setup outside Seattle, teak chairs pulled up around a gas-powered bonfire create a warm, welcoming spot to enjoy an evening with friends.If you’re thinking about adding a fire feature to your landscape, go for a smoke-free design. Many contemporary built-in fire pits burn natural gas rather than logs as fuel, saving the air from polluting wood smoke.

Alderwood Landscape Architecture and ConstructionPatio Around a Fire PitGoal: Design a lounge area for hosting a group around an outdoor fire pitApproximate size: 15 to 20 feet (4.6 to 6.1 meters) long and wide or larger Most fire pits, besides the small movable models, are 3 to 6 feet (0.9 meter to 1.8 meters) across. Whether you’re using outdoor furniture or a built-in seating arrangement, you’ll want to keep 2 to 2½ feet (0.6 to 0.8 meter) as a comfortable distance between the edge of the fire pit and the surrounding seats. If you leave room for chairs and 2½ feet (0.8 meter) of circulation behind the chairs, you need a patio that’s at least about 15 by 15 feet (4.6 by 4.6 meters) to accommodate a fire pit and chairs. Larger fire pit models will require more space.Browse fire pits and bowls on Houzz
