01 Dec Adding Some Fire to Your Backyard Retreat
Here in Kansas City, we experience all temperatures. Our summers are hot and humid, but our winter can be very cold. One of the best ways to create a backyard retreat that will serve your family year-round is adding a fire pit to your design.
Fire pits can serve many purposes in your backyard. These beautiful hardscape creations make time outside with your guests even more enjoyable by adding the comfort of warmth to your patio. Fire pits create an inviting atmosphere, inviting guests to gather close and share stories or socialize. The addition of a fire pit to your backyard retreat also gives you the option to cook outside, roasting hot dogs or toasting marshmallows for s’mores.
Fire pits are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes. With the help of our design team at Kansas City Hardscapes, you can literally dream up whatever fire pit you feel will fit best in your outdoor space.
A custom block fire pits is probably what you imagined when you first read the title of this blog post. These fire pits are encased by a wall of stone blocks or bricks, and are most commonly designed as a circle or or a square. These are great because they are simple, affordable, and create the perfect space for family and friends to huddle around.
These hardscape features are often central to the design of the entire backyard retreat. Built to resemble a traditional fireplace, these can be created from a wide variety of stones or bricks. The outdoor fireplace is really for those homeowners who want the warmth of the fire, but they also would like a statement piece to their outdoor living area. A fireplace is the easiest way to make a statement for sure!
Natural or Liquid Propane Gas
When looking at a fire pit or fireplace you can choose either wood burning or gas. Some people love the smell of an open fire, but some love the convenience of gas more. If you would prefer to skip to hassle of using wood to fuel the fires in your fire pit or fireplace, we can arrange for a gas line to be installed instead.
Nothing completes an outdoor kitchen quite like a beautifully built pizza oven. Cook outside with family and friends, impressing your guests with amazing, gourmet pizzas prepared in your backyard retreat. These start as low as $1895 for a countertop unit and go up from there. Pizza ovens are a fun way to entertain!
