Making an Impact with Outdoor Fireplaces

Published on: October 23, 2013

A crackling, fragrant fire makes cool nights seem cozy and warm, both indoors and out. While many homeowners integrate the seasonal delight of an open fire with fire pits or chimineas, full outdoor fireplaces are a permanent installation that will change the overall feel of your entire property.

These large structures can be a part of a patio or garden’s outdoor living areas. They are also relatively easy to design in such a manner that they complement the rest of your lawn or garden, provided that you’re working with a landscaping design professional who has experience in outdoor fireplace hardscape installations. Whether you want to turn a stone wall into an outdoor fireplace, build a brick fireplace that acts as a wall for a patio or an intricate fire pit, your landscaping contractor can help you to make your visions a reality.

Field stone, brick, stucco and other stones are popular choices for outdoor fireplace construction, though you may find that there are other options that will complement your garden design even more. Before committing to one particular type or style of structure, you may find that your options are more open than you realized by working closely with an experienced hardscape and landscaping design professional.

Contact a landscaping company in your area who specializes in hardscape and outdoor living structures to discuss the ways in which a fireplace or open fire pit might be included in your landscaping design. With the warm glow of a fire, you’ll be able to enjoy the beauty of your lawn and garden well into the cooler months of the year. These features can extend the outdoor living season, allowing you to spend even more time enjoying your investment in landscaping design and maintenance.
