We finished up our most recent project in Kirkland into a spot that turned out exceptionally well! The focal point was definitely the new fire pit which gives everyone an obvious gathering spot. The fire pit was constructed out of CMU blocks and faced with a slim brick. The caps are constructed out of Pennsylvania bluestone. At the moment the concrete retaining wall kind of takes over the space but once the climbing hydrangea we installed begins to creep the wall, it will become much more attractive. Containers for annuals will be installed this summer to brighten the patio as well. Along the east side of the house, we installed a paver walkway to get from the front yard to the back. We planted mossy pink saxifrage in the open spaces of the path that will eventually fill in the entire walkway. Along the west side of the house, we put in synthetic turf to act as a dog run. It is safe for pets and also contains organics to help with any pet waste.
