The Hottest Addition to Your Yard in 2016: Fire Pits and Outdoor Fireplaces

Summer nights can get chilly, why not huddle up by the fire?

Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are the number one addition to outdoor living spaces for 2016! Take full advantage of your yard on those chilly August and September nights no matter your budget.

A sleek outdoor fire place can be a luxurious addition to a formal style landscape. Outdoor fireplaces can be as elaborate and custom as you wish. For a contemporary look, try a glass fireplace with clean lines and simplicity allowing the fire to be the focal point. These types of fire places can be built into a stone wall to create a private outdoor space.

For those who are more budget conscious, store bought fire pits are a great compromise and they come in all shapes, sizes and prices. For a small space like on a deck or for a small patio, try a fire table to save space and money.

For those do-it-yourself-ers, natural stone fire pits are easy and affordable to throw together. Purchase or gather rocks, stone, or brick to be the structure for your fire pit. This is a great option especially for those who prefer a wood burning fire instead of the gas or propane alternative.
