How To Decide Between An Outdoor Fireplace & Fire Pit

An outdoor living space just isn’t complete without some sort of fire feature, whether for cooking, entertaining or a bit of heat on those chilly fall or spring evenings.

At Scenic Specialties, we often see people have a hard time choosing between a fireplace and fire pit, so let’s take a look at a few reasons you might choose one or the other.

Why Your Outdoor Living Space Would Benefit From A:


A fireplace from Scenic Specialties’ landscaping services can transform your backyard into the outdoor living space you and your guests will love! They add warmth and ambiance like no other landscape feature, and we can help create one which meets your needs.

Fireplaces serve as focal points for cozy, outdoor living rooms where people can gather and relax even when there is a chill in the air. They are often an anchor for a patio and tend to be where furniture and other elements of your outdoor space are centered. Tucked into a wall, usually made of the same material as your patio, it truly creates a focus for conversation and gathering.

While not ideal for cooking, a fireplace is a great choice for more relaxed, reserved evenings.

Fire Pit

A fire pit from Scenic Specialties landscaping services can make a huge impact in the usefulness and amount of fun had in your backyard. There are many styles of fire pit which can match your home and landscaping, and there is a difference as well between a fire pit used for cooking and one used just for ambiance. We can help create one which meets your outdoor living needs.

Fire pits can serve as a natural gathering spot for your family and friends for socializing, entertaining and relaxing. People are drawn to the campfire-like atmosphere.
