Rondeau Ontario Landscape Design Special Features

Outdoor fire pit or fireplace?

The warmth and ambiance of a fire is unmatchable. There’s nothing like a roasting a marshmallow over an open fire pit, or sipping a glass of wine in front of an elegant fireplace. Want to add some fun to your outdoor space? Just light up a fire…


A fireplace can be the perfect centerpiece for a quiet evening, or a small gathering of close friends. A fireplace creates an intimate and relaxing atmosphere, perfect for sipping a glass of Merlot while enjoying the warmth of the fire. For a more open Rondeau Ontario landscape design, the fire in a fireplace is protected from wind, keeping smoke, embers and ash away from you and your guests. So, you can enjoy an evening by your fireplace, even if it is a little windy!

Fire pit

A fire pit will help create the fun and relaxing atmosphere of a campfire. An open fire pit will provide access to your friends and family from all angles, perfect for gathering around the fire for group sing-a-longs, roasting marshmallows and hotdogs! A fire pit can be built-in or moveable, depending on your needs. Fire pits typically burn wood, but higher-end models can be purchased that use natural gas or propane.

So, which do I choose for my Rondeau Ontario landscape design?

Your choice will come down to which option works better for you and your Rondeau Ontario landscape design. For a higher-end look that will coordinate well with the rest of your outdoor design, choose an elegant fireplace. You can typically build your fireplace out of the same materials you used for the rest of your outdoor space, such as brick or natural stone. And depending on your indoor heating solution, you can hook your outdoor fireplace into your home’s natural gas line or you can opt for a traditional wood-burning fireplace.

To recreate that classic campfire feel, choose a fire pit. If your design tastes change daily, you can opt for a standalone fire pit which you can move around at will to experiment with your unique Rondeau Ontario landscape design. Fire pits come in many different sizes and styles, making it easy to find one that fits with your outdoor living space.
