The backyard stated out with just a slab patio and a nice view. First came the pond and waterfall...then we added a retractable patio cover and furniture. This year we added a complete outdoor kitchen and we live outside as much as we do inside now.

Just beautiful and a great view too

What a great set-up. I love the way you tied the patio into the bbq/bar area and the firepit. It looks like a great entertaining area.
