Shaded Built In Grill

This new paver patio has some great features, but the piece d’resistance is definitely this one of a kind built in grill. Glendale, AZ outdoor living spaces like this one allow ample room for all your entertaining and relaxation needs.

In the foreground you get a glimpse at the once solid stucco pillars of the covered porch area that was there when we arrived to start the project. Now they are faced with the same natural stone used on the built in grill cabinet. So is the square fire pit that sits to the right of this photo on a raised area of the patio.

The built in grill with bar seating and a sink gives the cook ample food preparation and serving space. As with most patio grills, this one is also out in the open which would normally put whoever is cooking – and anyone lounging at the bar – in total exposure to the sun. This particular backyard already has a large covered porch at patio level, so adding a big pergola or ramada isn’t really necessary. Not only does this mini ramada break the sun’s glare, with that dark rich wood finish it creates a striking focal point out of the gas grill island.
