A fire pit or outdoor fireplace are great additions to compliment anyone’s back yard landscape. Either can be easily incorporated into your existing landscaping or added to create an entirely new outdoor room that will extend your time outside when the evening becomes chilly.
A cozy fire in your new outdoor area will draw you outside time and time again. So many clients comment on how they spend so many evenings outside now that they have an outdoor living area. This is one of the best compliments any landscaper can receive!
Fire pits and fireplaces come in an endless variety of sizes, shapes and materials that will fit your budget, landscape design and lifestyle. Some fire pits are centered into an informal circular patio for large gatherings and others can be set into comfortable nooks for quiet evenings at home.
In my own back yard, an amazing thing happens whenever we start a fire in the fireplace. My teenage children willingly leave their rooms and come down to spend hours with me and my husband. It never ceases to amaze me how that simple fire can get my children to voluntarily put down their phones, iPod’s and computers to spend real quality time with us.
Surprisingly we even use the fireplace in the winter. Nothing is more fun than cocoa by the fire after playing in the freshly fallen snow. Our outdoor fireplace has become a great way to get more “family time” into our busy days and create great memories that will last a lifetime.
It’s remarkable how something as simple as having a fire pit can change your every day patio into a genuine destination place. A destination place right in your own back yard. Let Century Landscaping help you with a design concept for your own fire pit or fireplace patio.
