Fire Pits & Outdoor Fireplaces
Adding a fire element to your outdoor living space creates a cozy atmosphere that can entertain long into the evening hours. The space you have available on your property will play a role in the size of the fire element you desire.
Smaller sized fire elements, around 3-feet in diameter, create an intimate space. Larger elements, closer to 6-feet or more in diameter, create a sizable space for entertaining larger groups of people.
Also, the fire features we install can be either gas burning or wood burning.
Fire pits are generally built out of brick or stacked stone and are generally stand-alone features meant for open gatherings. Fireplaces, on the other hand, are a feature that offer a more intimate setting. Also, they can be incorporated into a retaining wall or seating wall.
A well-built retaining wall can expand usable space on your property. Sloped properties benefit greatly from using retaining walls because they create more exterior space. Retaining walls also help prevent erosion and flooding.
Seating walls are generally built on the outside of a patio, around a fire pit, or near other areas. These freatures are aesthetically pleasing and highly functional.
Decorative Driveways & Walkways
Walkways can connect your driveway to your home, or be placed throughout your landscaping to connect to other hardscape features.
