An outdoor fireplace can be used and enjoyed year round. Whether it be during a cool spring evening or the chill of winter, grab a mug of hot cocoa or warm apple cider, don a hat and some warm mittens, and enjoy the glow and warmth of an outdoor fireplace. You will find that the memories you make while gathered outdoors around your outdoor fireplace are ones that last a lifetime.
Limestone fireplace: Limestone is a very durable and very attractive stone that is often used in the construction of fireplaces. It holds up well to heat and can also withstand cold, wind and rain.
Sandstone fireplace: Similar to limestone, sandstone is a durable and attractive material that works well in the construction of outdoor fireplaces.
Stacked stone fireplace: These are more natural and rugged in looks and can be a beautiful addition to any backyard space. They are constructed by stacking individual stones in a pattern to create a stone fireplace surround that is unique and beautiful.
Stone veneer fireplace: When you want the look of stone, without the expense of solid natural stone, you can build a stone veneer fireplace. The cost of these outdoor fireplaces is lower than other models because there is only a layer of stone which faces along the outside edges of the fireplace; the interior of the fireplace is constructed from a less expensive and easily molded material, such as concrete.
Cast stone fireplace: Cast stone fireplaces are a great option for the outdoors because you do not have to worry about individual stones chipping, falling off or becoming loose. In a cast stone fireplace, the material used is similar to a poured concrete that is carved, finished and designed to look like natural stone. Since it is all one solid piece, it is a very durable option for locations that are subject to extreme weather.
Faux stone fireplace: Faux stone fireplaces can be used outdoors in some climates, but in more extreme climates they may not hold up as well as some other outdoor fireplace designs because they are not made from natural stone.
