Do you love spending time outdoors after dark but struggle to stay warm (or able to see whatever is going on in front of you)? Cool nights and warm nights are both perfect for using an outdoor fire pit or outdoor fireplace. These visually interesting hardscaping elements are the perfect way to maximize your outdoor enjoyment every season of the year. What can a fire pit or outdoor fireplace add to your backyard?
An Outdoor Fireplace
Outdoor fireplaces provide a centerpiece for your backyard and work beautifully in yards with elevation. If you are going to be using your outdoor fireplace as your main outdoor lighting, keep in mind that it works best in smaller groups of people, since the firebox itself is not that large. Gas outdoor fireplaces are also very realistic now, as a roaring fire with realistic flames can be conjured up at the flick of a switch. Do you want to burn natural logs in your outdoor fireplace for a true campfire feel at night? A gas ignitor can allow you to use natural logs and get the delicious smell and crackle that you are used to.
An Outdoor Fire pit
Fire pits work beautifully in backyards that are used to entertaining large groups of people. Fire pits were traditionally small and circular, but today they are available in a wide variety of shapes and designs to suit your backyard and style. Do you have a rustic backyard that feels more wild than planted? Your fire pit should incorporate more natural elements, like large stones. If you have more formal and trimmed landscaping, your fire pit should be a sleeker modern design.
Fire pits can also be purchased in a variety of sizes to accommodate up to 12 people. They can be installed on a patio or deck outside of your home and can also be used to cook fun campfire treats all year long.
