Adding an outdoor fireplace or fire pit to your backyard landscaping can extend
the usable hours of your outdoor spaces by creating a warm outdoor living room.
Backyard landscaping with campfires and gas burning features
Most of us have fond memories of sitting around a campfire at some point in our
lives. Something sparks our primal instincts and we find ourselves staring into
glowing embers. Recent trends have many homeowners spending their free time at home
rather than vacationing.
Backyard landscaping is all about transforming a yard into a peaceful environment
and comfortable living space. What better way to create an enjoyable area
for family and social gatherings than to include an attractive fire pit or outdoor
Whether you are interested in the comfort of a wood burning fire or the convenience
of gas, we can find a solution that works best for you. Our team of designers and
craftsmen can build a fireplace to compliment the style of your home and garden.
The function of fire pits and fireplaces is to safely contain burning materials.
The forms, however, are endless - from simple portable metal fire pots to elaborate
masonry structures and sculptural fire features. Depending on your lifestyle, lot
size, and location we can customize a wood burning or gas fire feature to your desires.
Portable fire features such as a Chimenea or metal fire pots work well in small
locations and can easily be covered in inclement weather or moved into storage during
winter. Many outdoor furniture suppliers offer patio tables with integrated propane
burning fire elements.
Fire rings are typically used in wood burning applications. They can be as simple
as a hole in the ground with a few stones placed around the perimeter or a concrete
well tile with a stucco finish. Some of our installations have stone veneer and
caps on the exterior and fire-brick interiors. Others have custom fabricated grilling
grates or spark screens.
Custom Fire Features:
Our custom fire-rock installations are quite amazing. We select a naturally dished
boulder with you from local stone quarries and core drill a hole to allow a custom
burner and gas piping to be installed. You can decide whether you want the feature
to look like a camp fire with faux logs and glowing embers or more sculptural with
volcanic stone and river rock.
If you prefer a cleaner, more contemporary look, we can create a fire element to
your style as well. Burners are available in geometric shapes as well as curves
and concentric circles. Covered with recycled colored glass, the combined result
can be quite stunning.
When designing an outdoor fire pit, we will pay close attention to the surrounding
area. Bushes and trees should be positioned at a safe distance away from the structure.
We use a variety of hardscapes to enhance your fire-burning area.

Many clients consider installing an outdoor kitchen near their fire pit. This allows for easy access to food preparation spaces. Whatever
design you choose, we have the experience necessary to provide an elegant outdoor landscaping plan.
