Over the summer, Steve and I had a list of projects we wanted to tackle in our backyard. When we bought our home, it was 75% garden, so after taking out most of the gardens and laying sod, we were finally ready to start working towards our end goal. It’s been fun working with a pretty blank slate and picturing how we would use the space with our family. One of mine and Steve’s favourite memories growing up was having campfires with our family. It was always a highlight for us, and we loved the idea of making those memories with our kids!
Our property is narrow, but fairly deep, and the back corner worked the best. Steve used some cutoff stone, for the fire pit surround and patio, and I love the natural feel it has.
I’m looking forward to spending some fall evenings around a campfire with these guys!
