Practical and beautiful

A Pittsburgh-area back yard offers quiet tranquility

The fireplace serves as the focal point of this outdoor living space and also helps to provide privacy from the neighboring homes.

A combination of Desert Blend Country stone and Holland Desert Blend accents were used to create the massive fireplace and accompanying wood boxes that adorn this outdoor patio.

An outdoor kitchen, complete with a built-in gas grill and counter space, is conveniently located just outside the back door of this home.

An assortment of plants softens this back yard patio design. An added benefit is the amount of privacy they provide.

Low-voltage LED lighting was installed on this fireplace and along the seating wall to provide visual interest at night.
