Looking for that perfect finishing touch (or perhaps statement piece) for your backyard? If you envision leisurely family nights, romantic evenings, awesome laid-back parties, lazy summer barbeques, or formal gatherings, there’s one addition that does it all: a fire feature.
To most common folk, a standard prefab fire pit or, to take it up a notch, fireplace will do it. For others, a full-fledged fire feature is often the defining characteristic of a backyard.
A fireplace or other flaming feature is perfect for virtually every season: a gathering place for roasting marshmallows on hot summer nights and a cozy spot for crisp fall and spring evenings (and even winters, for the brave or the warm-climate residents). It’s like having a living room outside!
