An amazing entry and backyard fire pit

These St. Paul homeowners wanted to make their outdoor space more useful and enjoyable. Villa designers created a solution that included a seating area at the front entry and seating around a relaxing fire pit in the backyard, in addition to a new paving stone walkway to connect the front and back outdoor living areas.

This paver walkway and sidewalk leads to backyard fire pit seating area, with a VERSA-LOK retaining wall couch.

Instead of raised planters surrounding the home's front entrance, the designer employed a raised patio design and stairs using the VERSA-LOK retaining wall system. This design creates a perfect area for seating and potted plants. Bullnose pavers complete the stair treads and raised patio.

This front entrance landscape design is better than a porch!

Villa designers created a seating “couch” from VERSA-LOK retaining wall units, which perfectly fits the Willow Creek Paving Stones Circlestone patio with Ledgestone Fire Pit Kit. Both are in the popular Lakeshore Blend color.

VERSA-LOK retaining wall blocks can create almost any outdoor living feature, including this couch surround a fire pit.

A new paving stone walkway surrounds this home, and links the front seating area to the cozy conversation spot around the fire pit in back.

Paver patio sidewalk leads to a patio with fire pit.

Willow Creek Paving Stones Cobblestone and Circlestone pavers and the VERSA-LOK retaining wall unit couch are set off with contrasting black borders and Capstone Caps, making this a cozy conversation spot.

Enjoy the outdoors longer and later with a fire pit inset into a paver patio.
