Landscaping Ideas

Are you dealing with limited space in your backyard? Whether you have a massive pool occupying most of the functional space or you live in the city and only have a couple hundred square feet of useable yard, there is a solution to your problem. At Hearthside Fireplace, we know that standing or aboveground fire pits will fit just about anywhere without compromising the look and feel of a more traditional pit. Some models are designed around bars or circular dining areas with the pit in the middle. Others are simply aboveground pits that can easily be moved or placed in narrow locations. Regardless of the space you have, an aboveground pit will work for you.

Are you looking create a full kitchen and dining area in your backyard? If so, consider incorporating your pit into the paths and counter tops. Pits can be installed in the center of your dining area, behind your outdoor cooking space, or even near gardens and walkways. Best of all, the pits can be covered or surrounded by the same materials your outdoor dining area is finished in.

Do you want a pit that you can use to roast marshmallows, sing songs, or tell stories around? If so, a sunken pit located in a large garden or in your backyard itself will recreate the feeling of being on a campout in the woods. If you surround the pit with gravel, cobblestones, or dirt and then have a path leading to it, you can further enhance the look and feel of the great outdoors.

No matter the reason you want to install a fire pit, there is a way to incorporate it into your yard and landscaping. Be sure to speak to a design expert if you are having trouble coming up with great ideas.
