Is your backyard looking a little bare? Are you enjoying it as much as you could be? Adding an outdoor fireplace to your property is not only a great way to utilize the space but also to enjoy many other additional perks.
Here are 3 benefits to an outdoor fireplace you may have never thought of:
1. Keep the Bugs Away – Bugs are always a nuisance during the warmer summer months. While citronella candles can help keep them at bay, a fire can be a great way to enjoy the outdoors without swatting at pests all night. Wood-burning units are superb for keeping mosquitoes, gnats, and other annoying insects away.
2. Up Your Resale Value – No matter which part of the country you live in, everyone loves a warming fire on cooler nights. In fact, creating outdoor living spaces is one of the hottest trends for sellers looking to set their home apart from the competition. Especially for homes without an indoor fireplace, an outdoor unit can be a welcomed benefit for prospective buyers.
3. Outdoor Cooking – People love to cook outdoors especially over an open fire. Using just a few accessories over an open fire can turn your fireplace into an outdoor kitchen. Also try flavored smoking wood chips to take your meal from ordinary to amazing.
