A fireplace is the definition of comfort, coziness, and warmth combined with luxury and elegance. Investing in an outdoor fireplace will not only increase the value of your Seekonk, MA, property, but also boost your outdoor living experience. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your fireplace:
A Natural Gas Fireplace
Choosing the right type of fueling method for your fireplace will ensure that you end up with a feature that suits your lifestyle. Homeowners typically choose between wood-burning and natural gas fueling methods. Both of these types of fireplaces have their own pros and cons. A natural gas fireplace is easy to clean. It doesn’t produce any smoke or ash, and can be started at the flick of a switch. The two disadvantages of this type of fireplace are its higher price and more intricate installation process. To have a gas outdoor fireplace installed on your patio, a gas line will need to be fitted. However, this can be easily taken care of by a Premier Landscape professional.
A Wood-Burning Fireplace
A wood-burning fireplace is a long-lasting structure that will add an impeccable atmosphere to your backyard. With a wood-burning fireplace, you’ll be able to enjoy the crackling sounds of burning wood and its pleasant aroma while roasting marshmallows during your evening gatherings. A wood-burning fireplace can be built out of concrete blocks, natural stone or a combination of concrete and stone veneer. The main drawback for homeowners who prefer this type of fireplace is maintenance and the longer start-up time. This type of fireplace also needs proper ventilation as it produces smoke. Wood supply and storage are also things to be taken into consideration. But with some planning and the help of Premier Landscape, a wood-burning fireplace is perfect for creating stunning backyard ambience.
Stunning Focal Points
There is no doubt that a fireplace will beautify your backyard, adding class and elegance to your overall outdoor design. Depending on the style of your backyard and the architecture of your home, your landscape contractor can add a modern-looking or traditional fireplace in order to create harmony. Concrete blocks are a popular material for building fireplaces. They offer an abundance of vibrant colors, interesting surface textures and the authentic look of natural stone. Because of its heat resistance and stunning decorative value, stone veneer is also a highly requested material for building unique fireplaces.
Warmth and Ambience for Entertaining
Fireplaces are great for larger gatherings and will have guests naturally gravitating towards this cozy gathering spot. An outdoor fireplace will allow you to use your outdoor living area all year round, providing warmth and creating the most incredible ambience, especially when combined with subtle outdoor lighting. By illuminating the fireplace area, you can add safety and create interesting shadows and lighting patterns that will enhance the gorgeous glow of the fire. Let a Premier Landscape professional take care of the design and installation of your outdoor fireplace to ensure the best possible atmosphere for you, your guests, and your family.
