After a huge transformation, this Glendale backyard offers the homeowners a great deal. The outdoor fireplace separates the play area from the patio cleanly with an expansive seat wall that gives them all kinds of overflow seating for large gatherings. And while the toys are off in their own zone now, it’s easy to keep an eye on children at play from a comfy chair on the gorgeous new flagstone patio.
Faced with natural stone, the fireplace’s stucco seat walls are capped with flagstone too. This is a durable surface that you won’t worry about the kids’ toys scarring, or paint that needs refreshing from time to time. The front of the fireplace was also faced with the same stone as the benches, and the built in grill not far away. The result is a richer look than an all stucco outdoor fireplace at a more budget-minded price.
That’s a lot of perks in one small backyard, and they all add up to make for a great outdoor living space for a growing family that loves to entertain.
