While outdoor living has grown in popularity, homeowners focus on the basics in a cool economy, according to an American Society of Landscape Architects survey of residential landscape architects. Overall, 94.4 percent of residential landscape architects rate outdoor living spaces, as somewhat or very popular for 2010.
The most popular outdoor entertainment features favor the essentials while avoiding expensive, elaborate items. Trends note the continued interest in seating and dining areas, the use of weatherized outdoor furniture, installing seating like benches and seatwalls, along with the ever-popular fire pit or outdoor fireplace.
One way to include the luxury of an outdoor fireplace is to avoid hiring a contractor or having tradesman on site, and choose a outdoor fireplace kit. A do-it-yourself custom application gives the Perfect Outdoor Fireplace an expensive look. These outdoor fireplaces come with interlocking pieces that can be completely installed without mortar nor glue within a days time. Another unheard of benefit is the outdoor fireplace gives the possibility of being disassembled and moved. Landscaping is sometimes done over time with an additional outdoor living space added in stages in another section of the property.
The Perfect Outdoor Fireplaces are also available in both gas and wood burning versions. Preferences for propane or natural gas may be met by these outdoor patio fireplaces. Having the versatility to warm both seating and dining areas and possibility to provide a grill surface, outdoor living trends will continue to include outdoor fireplaces.
