Great Outdoor Living Spaces
Outdoor Fireplaces & Fire Pits
Before you decide which feature is best for your backyard, you should understand the basic differences between outdoor fireplaces and fire pits to make the right choice for your home.
An outdoor fireplace will look much like the fireplace in your home—complete with a hearth and a chimney. Grand and stunning in appearance, fireplaces make a more dramatic statement in your yard. A fire pit is usually an open structure that can be round, square, or any other shape you prefer. The top of a fire pit is open to the air, making it perfect for gathering around and roasting marshmallows.
Though a fireplace or fire pit is great along with an outdoor kitchen, you don’t need a full kitchen to have a large outdoor fireplace.
An outdoor fireplace is a perfect addition to your patio if you simply enjoy sitting outside year-round. Whatever your preferred look may be, your new outdoor fireplace or fire pit will bring your backyard to the next level!

Planning a Retaining Wall Installation
There are many reasons to install a retaining wall, including:
- Preventing erosion: Retaining walls are designed to support changes in elevation on your property and to prevent soil from slipping.
- Landscape stability: Sometimes builders and landscapers will use retaining walls to help build infrastructural stability around your home.
- Aesthetic reasons: Retaining walls can also be installed for purely aesthetic reasons such as accentuating tiered landscaping.
- Preserving the functionality of an outdoor space: Retaining walls can provide extra usable space where you can set up an outdoor table and chair set, a swing or even an additional small garden.
