Sloped Backyard Patio Ideas (Maximize space for fire)

Our Tuesday Tip for today shares firepit sloped backyard ideas. When thinking about designing your outdoor living space on a sloped yard, you may wonder how to maximize space, especially in a sloped small yard. Please consider options with retaining walls and a firepit seat wall with backrest as a solution.

That is what Micah Dennis, the Outdoor Living Guy will share in this Tuesday Tips video. We all want to walk out onto a flat surface patio with destinations spots to head to. Many give up before they start – never realizing sloped backyard retaining walls are the solution. And they are a beautiful one. This video will share many completed landscapes on a slope near house.

Add a Firepit in It

By excavating the slope and retaining it, and adding a firepit seat wall with a backrest to handle the slope – suddenly you have a beautiful destination with a fire pit that frames the entire outdoor living space. It’s a practical and beautiful solution that provides hours of outdoor entertainment, extra seats for friends & family – all with untouched space. How’s that for Fun & Functional?
