Extending the Seasonal Use of Your Outdoor Spaces

Written By: Alan R. Blalack, RLA

Fall is in full swing and, for many homeowners, the arrival of cold weather brings with it a myriad of tasks associated with the change in season. Among them, sadly, is the chore of packing up your outdoor spaces and patio furniture, further signaling a period of hibernation that will last all winter.

But, why not prolong your outdoor enjoyment? By introducing heating elements such as a wood-burning fire pit or outdoor fireplace, you can keep warm into the colder days of autumn, adding an enchanting attraction and extending the use of your outdoor spaces.

Don’t want to bother hauling wood and dealing with smoke? You can still introduce the design element of fire by adding a fire trough or fire ring to your landscape. These gas-powered features offer even greater convenience, summoning fire in an instant with the push of button or use of a remote. Usually elevated off the ground about 18 to 24 inches, they are the perfect height for proper fireside enjoyment.
