Extend your outdoor living space well into the fall with fire pits, bowls, tables or outdoor fireplaces that are perfect for keeping warm.

When it comes to enhancing your yard with a fire pit, bowl, table or outdoor fireplace, the only limits are creativity and budget. Fire features range in price from $100 to $25,000 or more. “We love our fire pit,” says Coatesville’s Maria Nika. “We use it for relaxing and bonding. We have our best conversations around the fire. S’mores are just a bonus.”

Whether it’s propane or wood-burning, pit or table, circular or rectangular, a skilled landscape architect can accommodate just about anything. “Because of the diversity of materials in the market and the need for our work to blend seamlessly at our clients’ homes, features like this help to anchor our design and elevate the space to a curated level,” says Nathan Tuno of Roots Landscape, which is based in Wayne. “Fire features create an intimate custom space in any outdoor room.”
