Current Northville Backyard Landscaping: 6-14-12
The fireplace and brick paved patio are coming together nicely here 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.
Here are some photos of some of the detail work on this backyard landscape. Outdoor living spaces at its finest.
