Outdoor Fireplaces and Firepits
Adding any one of these or even both, to your property is an excellent way to make these open spaces more usable. These could be installed in the outdoor kitchen, on the patio, deck or anywhere in the garden or yard. In many instances, these installations become the focal point of the outdoor space. We at Thies Custom Walls and Landscaping have installed several outdoor stone fireplaces as well as fire pits on properties across Saint Charles, Creve Coeur, Lake Saint Louis, Bridgeton and Chesterfield.
These features are custom designed and installed using the best materials and workmanship. We work very closely with our clients to ensure that we understand what their specific ideas are and that these are incorporated into the design of the concrete fire pit. Take a look at some aspects we take into consideration while constructing fireplaces and firepits:
About Fireplace InstallationsAs mentioned earlier, these could be installed anywhere on the property. In some cases, they may be installed in a semi-enclosed space like an outdoor kitchen, while at others, they may be positioned under a pergola, near a pool house or they might be constructed out in the open, in one corner of the yard.
About Firepit InstallationsA fire pit can also be installed in any part of the garden or yard. It's different from having a fireplace in that it's a much smaller installation and that it allows for seating right around it, if that's what your requirement is. A fire pit is an ideal option for smaller yards or when you want a secondary fire element in the landscape apart from the fireplace that's already installed there
Aspects to Consider In Fireplace and Fireplace InstallationThe different factors we take into account while designing and constructing either an outdoor fireplace or a firepit are:
- The location for the installation
- Size of the available space
- Dimensions of the fireplace/firepit
- Your personal preference in terms of styling
- Materials to be used
- Choice of natural stone veneer in case you have opted for a concrete fireplace/firepit
- Fuel source- wood/natural gas/propane
- Plumbing installation planning in case we have to run a gas line from your house to the spot where the fireplace/firepit is to be installed a
- The firepit or fireplace installation cost
We are very detailed in our approach to our work and ensure that the installation is stunning in appearance and functional too.
