Fire pits come in hand hammered stainless steel finishes and enhance any backyard entertaining environment. These units come complete with a domed high temperature black powder coated fire screen and screen lift tool. The fire screen helps contain sparks from the fire just as a screen does on an indoor fireplace.
In the Northeastern US, most suggest using at least a 4-6 inch base of crushed stone, and even up to 7 inches is recommended due to harsh winter weather. For brick pavers, this means that you'll need to dig to about 9" depth, since the pavers are 2 inches in height. Since this is a lot of digging, it may be one of the primary reasons to hire a landscape company.
Although I've seen it done, I don't think you want to be carrying trays of drinks down several steps. One step down to the patio, and another step or two from the patio to the backyard, is acceptable. Any more than that, and you should build a deck, or build a platform under the patio, because you will then have the ability to adjust the height of the deck or patio to the conditions.
Whether because of lack of time or the fact that the possibility simply never crossed your mind, you might be underutilizing all of the options at your disposal. Adding a few Adirondack chairs or putting some cushier couches under a patio cover is a quick way to transform a humdrum outdoor space into a relaxing getaway for your family and your guests.
