Hi there, and my apologies in the delay in my response! I don't have the specific cost information you seek, but I can put you in touch with highly rated paver patio installers who would be able to give estimates and advice for the work you're looking to complete. You can also find these pros under the "landscaping - hardscaping & pavers" category when you use the "Search the List" function when you're logged in to www.angieslist.com.


There are some Angie's List Big Deals going on in your area that could help you save money on this type of work. You don't have to be an Angie's List member to purchase a Big Deal, but members do get a deeper discount.


Here are two active deals as of 4/15/2013 for paver/hardscaping projects:

Very roughly, brick/concrete pavers run around $3-5/SF for the pavers, stone from $5-10/SF (up to $50/SF for fancy marbles, granites, travertine, etc) depending on what kind of stone you are using and whether it is cut (pricier but flatter surface) or split (cheapest) and whether it is locally produced or not. Installation on good existing level subgrade materials would be in the ballpark of $10/SF, more if you are on clayey or organic soil or area needs more than superficiall levelling or drainage.

Ordinary in-ground fire pit from about $250 (dry fitted, ungrouted stone or stacked pavers) to $500-1000 for a grouted one. That does not include any kind of seating benches.

Fire pits are nice to sit around - basically just a contained campfire. If you intend to barbecue on it with any frequency or cook more than marshmallows and hot dogs, then you probably want a fireplace. However, unless you are a serious outdoor cook, the $1000-3000 for a fireplace is quite a hit compared to a couple hundred dollars for a portable metal barbecue or portable metal outdoor fireplace. Ditto for the fire pit - you can get a low metal fire pit about 30 inchers in diameter at box stores for about $50.
