Take advantage of local help to learn how to get your outdoor space up to par. Home Depot has free DIY classes (coming soon - landscaping & creating a beverage stand). I called my local store for more info...it's a teaching class with some hands on then I go home and make it. But if the class is small enough, I can actually take home what we made. Bonus! Check your local store for more info (don't forget to change to your location)!
There is definitely room for a fire pit on the master bedroom side of the yard. We'd love it to be inviting like this, with lots of greenery and natural wood, rather than full of concrete like we see many other people use.
