Fire Pit

Are you interested in an outdoor fireplace?

We are officially at the beginning of November, which means winter will be here before you know it.  Even though the temperatures will be dropping and there is the potential for snow, that doesn’t mean you should stop taking advantage of your landscape.  Right now is a great time to install a fireplace in your backyard to add some well-need warmth to the space.  Discover a few of the benefits of investing in an outdoor fireplace for you and your family to enjoy.


One of the major benefits of an outdoor fireplace is the entertainment value it adds to an event you are hosting.  An outdoor fireplace is the perfect addition to any cookout or event you decide to throw at your home. The addition of a fireplace or fire pit allows you to extend your living space.  If you are putting together a holiday party at your home, your guests can go outside and get warm around the fire. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit extends your home and adds space from the interior to the exterior of your home.

Warmth and Ambiance

One of the most obvious advantages of an outdoor fireplace is that it adds warmth to your landscape, especially during the winter.  Lighting up a fireplace in your backyard allows you to use the space all year around. An outdoor fireplace also enhances the beauty and overall ambiance of your home.  Nothing is better than cozying up to a warm fire and talking with a friend or having a romantic night with a significant other. Always remember to tend to your outdoor fire pit or fireplace, never leave unattended.  There are options to lighting your outdoor fire feature using the traditional wood, of gas ignition. The use of gas ignition allows you to turn the fire off at will while the traditional wood needs to be managed and cleaned up when put out.

Variety of Options

When it comes to installing a fireplace in your backyard, you have a wide range of design options to choose from.  TDH Landscaping offers several materials for fireplaces such as natural stone and brick. Natural stone is a popular choice among homeowners due to its durability and appearance.  A natural stone fireplace will stand up well to all of the elements, especially potential snowstorms that will occur in the winter. If your patio or other hardscaping feature is made out of natural stone or brick, your fireplace can blend in with the rest of your landscape seamlessly.  There are other options for fire pits that are pre-fab with the use of fire rocks or stones.
