Current Northville Backyard Landscaping: 6-12-12

Posted at June 12, 2012 | By : | Categories : Landscape Design | 0 Comment

Here are a few backyard landscaping construction photos that we took in Northville, MI.  An efficient and safe fireplace for a backyard landscape must be able to withstand extremes from fire, heat, and smoke.  Although the designs may differ with infinite possibilities, the main aspects must be stable in order to provide a solid product for our Northville, Novi, and Plymouth clients.  The inner shell of the fireplace must be built out of fireproof materials that are correctly pieced together and bonded with specific materials.  The outer shell is the “veneer”, this is where our landscape designers minds can start creating the magnificent.  All backyard fireplaces will need these aspects: a foundation, ash pit, fireplace butt walls, fireplace firebox, smoke shelf, (sometimes) lintel, smoke chamber, flue, chimney system.  With those aspects correctly applied in a creative and appealing way, you will have a fireplace that will help accent your backyard landscape.

The steps and part of the new patio are complete and the brick fireplace is beginning to take shape.
