There is nothing quite like curling up by a fire under the starry sky, and an outdoor fireplace for your Weston, MA, landscape can allow you to do that whenever you wish. Here are some excellent reasons to include an outdoor fireplace in your fall landscape.
Advantages of an Outdoor Fireplace
While an outdoor fireplace is clearly beautiful, it is also an asset to your home. Any guest who visits you will delight to sit by the warm fire, day or night, to chat and catch up on life. With comfortable furniture filled with soft pillows and snuggly throws nearby, you won’t ever want to leave your cozy spot.
If you love to entertain or have friends over for the big game, an outdoor fireplace is a natural gathering spot. People love to stand by the fire to warm themselves or just to enjoy the ambiance of the flames. During parties, guests naturally gravitate outdoors, especially if your fireplace is attached to the patio. This makes it easy to move from inside to outside, and back again.
Holidays are more fun when you have a fireplace in your landscape. No one turns down an invitation to linger by the fire with a warm drink and roasting marshmallows—it is fun for all ages. And, if you love to decorate, the fireplace offers a perfect spot for decorative seasonal touches. An outdoor fireplace is one of the landscape features that adds true value to your home.
Types of Fireplaces
With the gorgeous, durable landscape stones that are available today, there is a fireplace to complement any home’s architecture and landscape.
If your home is traditional, a brick outdoor fireplace could be a natural fit. You could elevate the look of the brick with some contrasting banding and a beautiful slate topped hearth—then you’ll have a true focal point for your backyard.
When modern is what you seek, there are stones in monochromatic hues of gray, tan, and white that can bring you the urban fireplace that you want. And, because a fireplace can be constructed in virtually any design, you can incorporate the clean, geometric lines of your home in your fireplace.
Cottages are a special New England look, and your fireplace can echo that aesthetic, too. Choose rustic landscape stones that blend seamlessly with your natural landscape and your fireplace can look like it has been there for a long time.
Gas or Wood
With today’s modern technology, your fireplace can be turned on and off with the use of an app on your phone. If you love the convenience and no mess of a gas-powered fireplace, you can have this for your outdoor fireplace as well as the indoor fireplace.
But if the smell of burning wood takes you back to fond memories from your childhood when you camped with your family and roasted marshmallows, then a wood burning fireplace might be just the thing for your landscape.
Your local landscape professional has the quality designs and comprehensive solutions to your outdoor fireplace needs. When you walk outside to your Weston, MA, backyard to a roaring fire and total relaxation, you’ll be glad you called them.
