Just a Fabulous Place to call HomeTraditional Patio, Chicago

Low voltage lighting integrated into the arbor and landscape enhances the garden’s ambient light. Rope lighting between the arbor beams creates its inner glow, copper path lights highlight grade changes, and cast bronze bullet fixtures with LED lamps highlight selected trees.

    Thank you for your interest in our project. We have found the optimal size for a wood burning fire pit to be 6' outside and 4' inside diameter. That allows for a significant sized fire. The seating area should be at least 6' wide to allow for comfortable chairs and space to circulate. The total width of this patio and fire pit is 18'. There is nothing quite like sitting by the fire on a autumn evening!
