A young couple would like update the backyard of their older home, specifically the old, unsafe built-in fireplace. Designer Dan Berger has just the plan for the old brick structure as well as the backyard's narrow pathway.
A new flagstone patio is a great place to enjoy the view, which includes an aquarium.
The outdoor fireplace is unusable, and there's no seating area.
The side yard pathway is too narrow.
With the help of a pond liner, the firebox is converted into a combination water fountain and aquarium, complete with fish.
The wider pathway and new brick stairs are framed by a rebar archway.
