Integrating a fire structure can be as simple as adding a portable firepit to your existing patio or by having a firepit built to work with your existing design. To create a truly custom look, full-scale fireplaces are a wonderful addition to your backyard landscape. There are pre-manufactured fireplaces that can be installed or they can be custom built.
