    palm tree on pool deck

    Where you are located in zone 8, you need a particularly robust palm to be potted outdoors year-round. I would suggest a windmill palm, mule palm or washingtonia palm. All of these are naturally cold resistant, with the mule and windmill being the better choices. They will constrain to the pot...

    Two Different Fence Heights

    If it were me, I would greenscape for privacy. Two layers of tree/hedge and a few Freestanding Acurio panels interspersed for privacy/artistic punch. Got CT, you should be able to get a number of upright arborvitae or juniper that can be hedged to 8'. You're correct that it will take one...

    Fire pit

    How isn't this a bad idea? Unless you've got multiple layers of non-conductive material in between, I wouldn't recommend this at all.
