Outdoor fire pits and fireplaces also offer an opportunity to make food together. Although not as dialed as a grill or barbecue, fire pits and fireplaces provide a flame over which you can toast marshmallows, or roast hot dogs or kabobs.


Fire pits provide a wonderful ambiance to your outdoor living area. Imagine how nice it is to gaze at the stars with a loved one while sitting next to a warm, crackling fire pit. Many memorable family moments have been made while sitting outside around a crackling fire. Fireplaces and fire pits may serve as the focal point in your backyard design scheme. Because of their size and natural attraction, they easily can become the centerpiece of your backyard.  Fireplaces and fire pits are a pleasant addition to your home that can add retail value if you decide to put your house on the market.
