For this grab your water hoses and lay them out in this size and put some chairs or what ever you think you will want to sit on in this area. See how it feels in "real life" and go from there.Is 8’ by 16’ sunken area large enough for a bar (seating, appliances, place to stand and hang out, etc). Not sure if we’ll cover (ex: pergola) it or not.
Please note fake grass and bare feet noted above. They and you are going to want a place to throw a ball around and do some fun stuff such as that as well as just running around playing chase. That area will be purrfect for that! Then you can pull out the chairs and loungers for movie nights outside!keeping it lawn for the kids to have some grass to play on
