Adding Warmth and Style to Your Outdoor Living Space:

The Benefits and Options of Outdoor Fireplaces

Outdoor fireplaces are an increasingly popular addition to outdoor living spaces. Not only do they provide warmth and light, but they also offer a cozy and inviting atmosphere for entertaining guests, relaxing with family, or just enjoying a quiet evening outside. If you are considering adding an outdoor fireplace to your backyard, patio, or deck, it is important to understand the different types available, as well as their unique features and benefits.


Types of Outdoor Fireplaces

There are several different types of outdoor fireplaces to choose from, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of the most popular types include:

Wood-Burning Fireplaces

Wood-burning fireplaces are traditional and classic, and they offer the warmth and aroma of a real fire. They can be constructed from a variety of materials, including brick, stone, or metal, and they typically feature chimneys or flues to vent smoke and ash.

Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces offer the convenience of turning on and off with a switch, and they do not produce smoke or ash, making them a popular option for homeowners who want a low-maintenance fireplace. They come in a variety of styles and sizes, and can be fueled by either natural gas or propane.

Bioethanol Fireplaces

Bioethanol fireplaces are a modern and eco-friendly alternative to traditional wood-burning or gas fireplaces. They burn a bio-alcohol fuel, which produces a clean, odorless flame, and they do not require a chimney or flue.

Benefits of Outdoor Fireplaces

Whether you choose a wood-burning, gas, or bioethanol fireplace, there are several benefits to adding one to your outdoor living space. Some of the most significant benefits include:

  • Increased property value: Outdoor fireplaces can increase the value of your home, making them a wise investment for the long-term.
  • Year-round use: With a well-designed outdoor fireplace, you can enjoy your outdoor living space even on cooler nights.
  • Increased entertaining options: Outdoor fireplaces are perfect for entertaining guests, whether you are hosting a party or just enjoying a quiet evening with family.
  • Enhanced ambiance: The warmth, light, and cozy atmosphere of an outdoor fireplace can enhance the overall ambiance of your outdoor living space.

Choosing the Right Outdoor Fireplace

When choosing an outdoor fireplace, it is important to consider your budget, the size of your outdoor living space, and your overall style and design preferences. Additionally, you should consider the fuel source, maintenance requirements, and any local building codes or restrictions.
Adding an outdoor fireplace to your backyard, patio, or deck can enhance your outdoor living space and provide you with a cozy and inviting atmosphere for entertaining guests, relaxing with family, or just enjoying a quiet evening outside. With the different types available, including wood-burning, gas, and bioethanol fireplaces, there is sure to be an option that fits your budget, style, and needs.

Amazing work from the guys at Dakine Landscape Contractors. They fully understood what we wanted to achieve and were able to bring our project to life in such a short time

Jane Donnelly

These guys were brilliant. They cleaned up after themselves, arrived on time every day and were very polite. Really happy with the work we've had done. Thanks

After contacting multiple landscaping companies and not receiving any callbacks my husband and I came across Dakine on Facebook. They were able to get us on schedule for an estimate and then scheduled to do work. Our front yard had been destroyed by the previous owner but Dakine took our requests and gave us our dream front yard. We will be working with them again for the back yard.

We would like to thank Donovan, Dave, and the entire crew of Dakine Landscape Contractors. They were simply wonderful, professional, courteous, hardworking, and followed through on everything they promised. They actually went above and beyond our expectations by far!

Hans & Leslie Lagasse

It was less than two weeks from the time I signed the quote to the time my concrete patio was finished. Everyone involved was professional, and the work done looks fantastic. Highly recommended.

Jessica Soucy

Dakine took our non-existent yard to a gorgeous and homey landscape. I was so impressed straight out the gate with the walkthrough and design - somehow he could see my vision and bring it to life! We were also very happy with the fair pricing. When our week finally came, the team was quick and extremely professional. My husband and I are blown away by our yard!

This review is long overdue as I owe a HUGE thank you Robert Scarola and his team at Dakine!! I couldn't be happier with the end results!! The communication from Robert was above and beyond! I was included/involved in every aspect and the results were absolutely amazing! I have already begun referring friends & neighbors to Dakine and I will continue to use them for other projects in the future!

Adrian Adame

Dakine did an awesome job with our backyard landscaping! Robert was prompt in getting to me to set up an estimate. Super professional and efficient. I liked that Robert provided a draw up and itemized details in our quote. He was willing to work with us to make sure we got everything that we wanted. The workers were on time and professional when they showed up to work. Always friendly and happy to answer any questions that we had. We had rocks, dry river bed, concrete walkway and firepit area installed, and plants. I would definitely use Dakine for any future projects!

I contacted Dakine with a front and rear landscaping project for my new build. They were able to work with a specific look that I wanted and got me in earlier than expected! Their team is phenomenal and the work is fast and looks extremely high end. I even added in some concrete work the day of and they got it in and taken care of without delays. Robert is extremely responsive and will make sure your requests are taken care of. Will definitely be using them for more landscaping projects. Robert and Donovan will definitely get you taken care of!
