Custom Outdoor Fireplace Design Tips
A custom-designed outdoor fireplace or fire pit will serve as one of the main anchor points of your outdoor living space. However, it alone is not enough to transform your backyard. Although your remodeling expert will make sure you end up with a beautiful and functional custom outdoor fireplace, these backyard landscape design tips will help you formulate an early version in your head.
- To determine the appropriate size, first determine the number of people expected to use the outdoor fire pit at any given time
- Keep the size of the fireplace in scale with the rest of the outdoor living space to make it a natural-looking part of the yard
- Try to incorporate architectural elements from your home into the fireplace design to create flow between your indoor and outdoor living spaces
- Areas adjacent to the backyard fireplace or fire pit should be large enough to accommodate outdoor patio furniture in order to create a functional sitting and entertaining area
- Fireplace or fire pit? Fireplaces have the benefits of structural magnificence, wind protection, and intimacy, while firepits are ideal for larger groups or areas with a view. Think critically about the advantages of your space, and seek the guidance of a professional for added tips and inspiration.
Popular Outdoor Water Features in Arizona
So, you’ve got fire taken care of; what about water? The addition of a few well-placed custom water features can give your outdoor living space a new level of tranquility and relaxation (especially in an area as hot as Phoenix). You’re free to design any water features you like, but you may want to consider one of these popular design choices:
Also called “pond-less waterfalls,” cascading waterfalls disappear into a bed of gravel, where the water is re-circulated to the top of the waterfall.
Water gardens are among the oldest and most popular design in America. A small pond full of aquatic plants, koi, and goldfish will quickly become one of your favorite places to relax.
Sheet waterfalls are typically found in outdoor living spaces that make use of a more contemporary design, particularly those that incorporate lots of blocks and bricks.
