The Rising Popularity of Fireplaces and Fire Pits

Why You Should Include One in Your Backyard

Fireplaces and fire pits are some of the most popular outdoor renovation projects, and it’s not easy to see why. What could be more enjoyable than stepping outside to enjoy the comfort of your own backyard?

Imagine coming home from a long day of work and relaxing with your family outside a warm and welcoming fire. The best part is, it doesn’t take long to design and build one.

If you’re interested in adding an outdoor fireplace or fire pit to your home, here are some options to consider:

A Defined Place to Gather

As the warm summer nights make way for cooler fall temps, custom fireplaces and fire pits significantly extend your time outside. Fire warms the air and keeps bugs away, helping make the area more enjoyable for hosting guests and family members. They also create a gathering spot for parties and events.

Hardscaping Options

From simple wood-burning fire pits to natural gas or propane with natural stone accents, the design of each project can be adapted to fit every yard. Esposito Masonry team members have been building elegant, inspiring outdoor fireplaces that last for decades. They carry a wide range of stone colors, shapes, and styles to accentuate your home. 

Outdoor Cooking

Not only do outdoor fire pits allow guests to enjoy outdoor entertaining well into colder months, but they’re also just as useful in the summer season too. And they’re not just for roasting marshmallows. Outdoor fireplaces can double as outdoor barbecues in a pinch as well.

Safety Measures

Whether you’d adding a fire pit to an outdoor patio or building a fireplace as a focal point for your yard, make sure to consult with a professional landscape firm to ensure safety measures are maintained. You want to make sure the fire is in a safe, localized area.
