Choosing the Right Fireplace or Fire Pit for Your Landscape

We hate to bring this up, but summer is already almost halfway over. That means fall is on the way. So, is your landscape ready for the change of season? With a new outdoor fireplace or fire pit, your friends and family can enjoy the outdoors all year long, even during the colder months. Team Keane, your Rockwall landscaping company, can walk you through everything you need to know about installing a new outdoor fireplace or fire pit.


Installing Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits: What You Need to Know

If you are thinking of upgrading your landscape with an outdoor fireplace or fire pit, there are a few questions you should ask yourself before you dive into this new project.


  1. What kind of fireplace or fire pit do you want?

Depending on your needs, a fireplace or fire pit may better suit your landscape. You can choose between custom built-in fireplaces and fire pits, prefab fireplaces and fire pits, or portable fire pits. Fireplaces and fire pits can come in any number of shapes and sizes as well, so remember to think out of the box.


  1. How many guests will you entertain?

This question is extremely important. You need to consider how large the fire pit will be, the amount of seating you’ll need, and where in your landscape the fireplace or fire pit will fit, along with you and your guests.


  1. What will you use for fuel?

Before making a decision, weigh the pros and cons of burning gas, propane, wood, and ethanol.


  1. With what material will the fire pit or fireplace be constructed?

You want the stone to match the rest of your landscape’s design, complement your home’s exterior, and fit into your budget.
