Landscaping Service Fire Pits

A fire pit is the common term for an outdoor fireplace. As the name implies it is a a place for building fires outside of the home. Construction is somewhat similar to an indoor fireplace, though outdoor fireplaces are usually added stone, brick, or concrete patios.

While indoor fireplaces are traditionally designed for heating, cooking tends to be the primary purpose of the outdoor fireplace. Many are designed to double as wood-fired ovens that allow homeowners to create meals such as pizzas and casseroles. Entire outdoor kitchens can evolve from the fireplace.

An outdoor fireplace can simply be a decorative element, which allows homeowners to enjoy a crackling fire while entertaining in the backyard.
