The weather is finally warming up in Virginia, and you’re probably feeling ready to spend more time outside in the sun. Unfortunately, after the long, cold winter we had, many homeowners have put off projects and their backyards aren’t quite the relaxing area they want it to be.
As fall creeps in and the nights get crisp, many of us long for evenings spent outside around a fire before it gets too cold out. While store-bought fire pits, chimeneas, or even bonfires might be the best solutions for some, custom built-in fire pits add lasting value to a home’s landscape.
Check out this before & after of a recent backyard fire pit project in Chesapeake:
The new patio and walkway make use of sleek pavers and really bring the whole backyard together with the fire pit as the focus. There is plenty of room for extra chairs around the firepit, but we love that people can gather on the stone arc easily and comfortably. The accent lighting around the arc makes the area safer and adds an extra touch of beauty.

As a paver material, porcelain has many benefits. It is frost and skid-resistant and incredibly durable, making it a smart choice for high-traffic outdoor areas like patios, walkways, and especially pool decks. Basnight recently finished a pool deck installation using Belgard’s new Mirage collection of porcelain pavers.
Our client chose these pavers because of their clean, transitional look and slip-resistance (perhaps the most important factor when picking a pool deck material). Belgard outdoor porcelain pavers are also quick to install and highly customizable for any pool area.
Are Porcelain Pavers Right for Your Pool Deck?
When choosing material for pool decking, safety and city codes should be your first concern. The best thing about outdoor porcelain pavers is that they provide slip-resistant safety while still enhancing the beauty of the pool area.
If you are installing a new pool or looking to upgrade your pool decking, Belgard porcelain pavers may be your solution. Visit Belgard’s website to look at the various Mirage styles and call Basnight Land & Lawn at (757) 436-9617 to talk about custom installation.
