If you want to transform the outdoor area of your home into a warm and friendly gathering place, then consider adding an outdoor stone fireplace. The beauty and elegance that this kind of fireplace gives is simply incredible.

Stone fireplaces made from natural stone or a number of other outdoor materials, make for the perfect area to entertain family or friends.

Stone is also the perfect material for an outdoor fireplace. It’s fire retardant, strong, and extremely long lasting.

Other types of stone used with these types of fireplaces include marble, sandstone, granite, stucco, and cast coral. You can even mix several of these materials together and use different sizes in designing your own one of a kind fireplace for your home.

Another aspect of an outdoor stone fireplace is its ability to withstand all types of weather conditions. From summer heat to the freezing winter temperatures these fireplaces stand strong, making them the perfect compliment to a backyard pool or patio area.

You can find these outdoor fireplaces in gas, electric or of course, wood burning. Is there anything better than tossing another log onto the fire while sitting around with friends? While wood burning fireplaces are the least expensive, gas fireplaces also make for good choices.

You can find all types of outdoor fireplaces, from prefabricated to masonry, among many others as well. But nothing can compare to the durability and beauty that comes with an outdoor stone fireplace.
