Fire Pits

Illuminate The Ambiance Of Your Alabama Backyard With

Outdoor Fire Pits and Fireplaces

Fire: it adds a nice warm glow to even the chilliest of fall evenings, but it also acts as a gathering spot around which friends and neighbors can huddle on a summer night, especially here in our social city of Huntsville. From roasting marshmallows to enjoying a cold drink, there are a countless variety of memory-making activities to enjoy around a fire feature. Getting warm is just one of the benefits!

Whatever fits your fancy, you’ll need a professional landscape construction and design firm behind you when determining which kind of fire feature is best for your yard. Here at Twelve Oaks Landscape Co., we can provide advice, take measurements, come up with a design and construct it — all under one roof for one affordable price. But determining what you want: outdoor fire pit or fireplace? That is the question. We’re here to help you find the answer that’s right for you and the landscape of your Alabama property.

Differences Between Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits

There are many differences between fire pits and fireplaces. The one you choose will depend on how interactive you want to get and the purpose of your fire feature overall.

Whether you use your fire feature for grilling food in the warm months or you just want to create some ambiance, the type of fire feature you choose says a lot about your lifestyle. Recessed fire pits are great for modern patios, preferably with no children running about. A stacked stone fireplace is a rustic, kid-friendly addition to any patio, or perhaps even a table-top four-unit pit that shows off your contemporary image.

If you intend to use a fire feature for functional purposes, such as cooking outdoors, then a fireplace may be the best bet. Conversely, if you intend to use it socially, say, to gather around for recounting tales and roasting marshmallows, then a backyard fire pit is probably the best choice for such activities.

Fire Pits

  • More interactive, easier to gather around, suited for social get-togethers and outdoor parties
  • Allows seating around perimeter, so people can comfortably sit as they would around a campfire
  • Makes for a great cooking feature, as well as a fun area to entertain and host friends and guests
  • Space-saving, because it doesn’t take up as much space as a custom-made fireplace
  • Doesn’t require a chimney, can be constructed so that smoke is directed away from the seating area
  • Less expensive on average than a fireplace (both indoor and outdoor!)

Fire Places

  • Seating in front of feature, rather than around its perimeter
  • Makes an elegant architectural statement on any residential or commercial property
  • Chimney directs smoke upwards and outwards from seating area
  • Accommodates all sizes of yards — for example, can be built on the edge of a patio to save room
  • Can be constructed as part of a pavilion, where you can mount a television and more
  • Can be used in rainy weather when built with a cover or a pavilion structure
  • Adds greater privacy to neighborhood properties, acting as a buffer between you and your neighbors
  • Limits amount of people who can get near the fireplace, and decreases chance of kids getting hurt
  • Less hazardous than a fire pit, flames may be contained, even in windy conditions
