With the cooler months approaching, homeowners are thinking about how to prepare their homes and landscape for the fall and winter. The crisp fall air, colorful fallen leaves, and dark evenings offer a great opportunity to break out the s’mores, get cozy, and make memories with family and friends. And what better way to do that than by sitting by a bright, roaring fire in an outdoor fireplace? This is the perfect fall addition, and there are many reasons why you need an outdoor fireplace in your backyard.
As we move toward fall, your new fireplace will play a pivotal role in keeping your backyard usable through the colder evenings. Installing the fireplace close to the sitting areas is important to keep them warm and cozy. You can also consider installing a double-sided fireplace that can warm up more people. A gas fireplace is generally more viable than a wood-burning fireplace if you plan to use it throughout winter due to the clean-burning flame and minimal smoke emission.
Perfect For Socializing
Are you feeling down because the weather is growing colder? Having a fireplace in your backyard automatically makes your outdoor space appear more welcoming, and spending time outdoors more comfortably can make it feel like you’re extending the pleasant weather. This is an absolute must if you like to throw parties and spend time with friends. In addition to social gatherings, few things are as romantic as spending time on a relaxing night by a warm fire.
Adds Value to Your Home
Fireplaces are a highly sought after landscape feature that offers a great return on investment. They can not only raise your home’s curb appeal but also help raise the property value. However, to maximize the benefits, a great deal of attention must go into the fireplace’s design and installation. In particular, the choice of materials, the placement of the fireplace, and attention to safety are vitally important to get the best return on investment from your outdoor fireplace. Positioning your fireplace to be visible from the inside is also a great way to draw attention to it.
