It's finally fall, which means it's time to get ready for falling leaves and cool, crisp evenings. But just because it's autumn doesn't mean you can't enjoy being outdoors -- in fact, this is one of the most beautiful seasons, so you should spend time outside and enjoy it! However, if you don't feel your backyard is made for backyard entertaining in the cooler weather, there is one fantastic solution that will add value, space, and aesthetics: custom firepits. Let's take a closer look at how a great outdoor fireplace design can help you make the most of your property this season.
Outdoor fireplaces add more usable space
You probably spend a fair amount of time on your patio, porch, or backyard in the spring and summer. But once temperatures cool down, you probably do everything indoors. Adding a firepit to your backyard can make that space more attractive throughout the year. Regardless of season, you can spend time outside with friends and family around the fire.
A fire pit adds value
Landscaping projects can bring a recovery value of 100-200% at selling time, which is why so many realtors recommend taking on such a project before you list your home on the market. But something as simple as adding an outdoor fireplace with built-in seating can make a big difference. Buyers will be able to picture themselves hanging out with friends and family, which is often the first step to selling a home. A high-quality fire feature will attract offers and will add to the overall beauty of your property.
Firepits make entertaining a breeze
If you love playing host, your firepit can serve as the main focal point of your get-together. Whether you want to have neighborhood families over for some fall festivities or enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with your kids while watching the setting sun, you can simply head outdoors and gather around the dancing flames.
Whether you're looking to add ambiance, function, or a little bit of both, a custom firepit can allow you to use your backyard throughout the year. To find out more about having a custom fireplace designed with your needs in mind, contact Borsello Landscaping today.
