HGTV Green Home 2008: Backyard and Fire Pit

HGTV's 2008 Green Home boasts inviting backyard spaces that make use of local resources, native drought-tolerant plants, a natural irrigation system and sustainable landscaping practices.

Fire Pit and Backyard Seating Area

One of the Green Home's most unique features is the fire pit. Located off the north veranda, this gathering space features six Adirondack chairs and a replica of a 19th century syrup kettle made by local artisans. Like the syrup kettle, most of the materials used to construct the house were manufactured or harvested within 500 miles of the site. This reduces transportation costs and associated greenhouse gases, while encouraging a healthy local economy.
