Today’s Fire Features are for More than Just Marshmallow Toasting
There’s nothing quite like gathering family and friends around a crackling, popping flame on a long summer night (or a cool autumn evening). From marshmallow toasting, to joining party guests in a rousing group-sing, to simply staying out late and watching the stars appear in the night sky, an outdoor fireplace or fire pit can help to spark new favorite memories. Dragonfly Landscape Design can help you choose a design that fits your home perfectly. And for safety, we always suggest a little landscape lighting for the pathways you travel on the way to the fire pit!
There’s No Better Way To Kindle New Memories or Add Value
Custom outdoor fire features have exploded in popularity in recent years, and it’s easy to see why they are such an important part of our backyard landscaping. With a classic fireplace or fire pit (or modern propane fire feature), you can enjoy the warmth and beauty of fire in style and safety when the weather turns cold. Wood- or propane-burning, custom fire features can be constructed from any natural or engineered stone, brick, or concrete paver product to match any aesthetic style and to complement any outdoor kitchen, adding noticeable value to your home and outdoor living space!
Explore your Fire Options
While we may all be familiar with outdoor fireplaces and fire pits, there are an almost unlimited number of outdoor wood-burning and propane-burning fire features to consider, including (but not limited to) the following:
- Fire Pits
- Fire Bowls
- Fire Columns
- Fire Tables
And Don’t Forget to Accessorize
Fire accessories can improve the style, function, and safety of your outdoor fire feature. The best items to use include:
- Tools – Pokers, cooking grates, marshmallow skewers, wood handlers, and tongs are all tools that help you enjoy your backyard fire
- Screens – A metal screen is key for any wood-burning fire feature, preventing embers and ashes from exiting the feature.
- Racks/Carriers – Place logs in a rack or carrier so you can easily add them to your wood-burning fire feature
- Covers – Cover your propane-burning fire feature with a heavy-duty weather-resistant cover when it’s not in use
And, a fire feature on its own isn’t much fun if you have to stand around it. Be sure to invest in a fireproof rug and some fire resistance patio furniture too!
