Firepit; Rick Anderson style.
This is a firepit area I designed for a client, my thought process was simple here: What if Fred Flintstone was a Landscape Designer?
Thats how I came up with the stone seating for the circle, a ring of stones for the fireplace, and of course a stone bridge over the stream spilling into the pond. This was only a couple of weeks after completion and thats why everything still looks so pristine.
The seats are recycled from old barn foundation stone and I think they add a real sense of permanence here. A couple of great things about stone seats:
- They never need painted.
- No need to bring them in during the winter.
- Guaranteed not to rust.
- A heavy person cannot break them.
- Almost impossible to steal !!!
