BACKYARD FIRE PITS FOR A COLORADO LANDSCAPE

LID Landscapes has years of experience working with our clients, listening to their goals and desires, and partnering with them to create the outdoor space of their dreams. Our landscape designers will work with you every step of the way to choose the outdoor fire pit or outdoor fireplace that fits your personal style and needs.
Whether you want to sip a glass of wine with friends, cook marshmallows over the fire, or grill your favorite foods, you’ll discover that an outdoor fire pit or outdoor fireplace makes every season enjoyable.
DESIGNING YOUR STONE FIRE PIT
Another important element to consider when designing an outdoor fire pit includes what material to use.
Whether it’s flagstone, granite, brick, or concrete, there are quite a few options to make a unique outdoor living space perfect for your style, needs and functionality. Our team of landscape design experts will help you select the perfect material for your fire pit or outdoor fireplace, taking into account the harsh Colorado winters we can experience.
BACKYARD FIRE PIT IDEAS
Stone fire pits and outdoor fireplaces create a stunning focal point in any landscape design, while extending the usability of your outdoor space as you cozy up outside throughout Colorado’s chilly nights.
Both an outdoor fireplace and an outdoor firepit are great for entertaining and they’re perfect for gathering with your family and friends. If you have the space for an outdoor grill and an outdoor firepit, we’d encourage you to add both as the outdoor grill is more functional for cooking dinner or barbecuing. The outdoor fire pit is more of a leisure space to have a glass of wine, roast marshmallows and relax with family and friends.
Your new outdoor fireplace will create the perfect focal point for your patio. Let the team at LID Landscapes work with you to create a space that’s cozy and inviting – no matter your style, whether contemporary, modern, traditional, or country chic.
CHOOSING AN OUTDOOR FIREPLACE OR OUTDOOR FIRE PIT
You may wonder, what is the difference between an outdoor fire pit and an outdoor fireplace? A fire pit is a smaller structure that you can have a fire within. The fire pit can be fueled by either wood or gas depending on your preference. An outdoor fireplace is a larger structure, usually built with surrounding walls, ledges and sometimes seating or other appliances around it, such as a sink, or grill. It’s a larger structure and typically isn’t removable as a fire pit is.
The outdoor fireplace usually has a design aesthetic similar to the architecture of the home. This creates a complimentary design feature from the inside of your home carrying outside to your landscape design.
BENEFITS OF AN OUTDOOR FIREPIT
There are a number of benefits when it comes to adding an outdoor fire pit to your backyard or patio.
- A firepit is less of a financial commitment and expense than a built-in fireplace so for clients not quite ready to commit to an outdoor fireplace, we suggest considering a custom-built fire pit.
- Firepits are made of non-combustible materials making them safe and enjoyable for the whole family.
- Firepits offer the functionality for outdoor gatherings and also added fun for sitting by the fire with family or friends enjoying a glass of wine or making smores.
- Firepits provide additional light and warmth to an outdoor space.
