20 Stunning Outdoor Fieldstone Fireplace For Beautiful Lancape

Outdoor stone fireplaces can create a dramatic focal point and gathering place in any outdoor living space. Following the right tips and suggestions will have you warming up next to your new outdoor gathering place in no time.

If you’re planning on installing an outdoor stone fireplace, you’ll first want to choose a location. Many people choose to build directly adjacent to their home, on a patio or deck. Others prefer a more distinct location, like a separate gathering area in another portion of the backyard. One thing to keep in mind is that wherever you locate your fireplace, you want to ensure that all bushes and overhanging branches are clear, and that there isn’t an abundance of dry grass nearby.
Once you’ve chosen a location, it’s time to think about a design style for your stone outdoor fireplace. There are many options, from a traditional brick façade to more elaborate stonework. Think about whether you want the style to be unique to the fireplace, or if it should match the overall aesthetic of your home and outdoor space.
Once you’ve decided on the style, it’s time to build—or purchase—your outdoor stone fireplace. You can construct one yourself if you have the masonry experience, or you can hire a contractor. Another option is to buy a prefabricated outdoor stone fireplace from a home improvement store. All of these options have pros and cons based on time, cost and customizability of the fireplace, so you’ll just need to explore them all and choose which one works best for you.
