Outdoor fireplaces and firepits

'The most tangible of all visible mysteries.'
Leigh Hunt

Outdoor Fireplaces and Firepits

How fortunate are we to live in San Diego with a year round outdoor climate? We can build great outdoor rooms and entertaining areas within our gardens that allow us to get the maximium use of our personal spaces. What we find about outdoor fireplaces is that they have a tendency to extend the use of these outdoor living spaces into the cooler months. With a nice big open hearth fire roaring, we are invited outside into a campfire like experience even in the middle of our mild winter. Fire features can really vary in price and style. We can build somethig as simple as a free standing fire pit to a pretty elaborate fire and water feature.

Don't shy away from a single large dramatic statement. One big element, such as an outdoor fireplace can create a focal point for a garden area, drawing attention and prompting people to gather there.
