Fireplaces aren’t just for indoors anymore. Outdoor fireplaces are growing in popularity, especially in Wisconsin. They provide warmth, light, and value to the outdoor areas of your home. Loomis Landscaping designs and installs outdoor fireplaces at homes across southeastern Wisconsin.
The designers of Loomis Landscaping have created many custom patio fireplaces. Outdoor fireplace styles include brick and stone to best match your patio area.

While you might not be able to cook a full meal, a fireplace is perfect for roasting marshmallows or roast chestnuts. Gather around the flames with friends and family as you enjoy a BBQ or grilled meal.
Outdoor fireplaces must be placed a certain distance away from your house and your neighboring property lines. Our landscapers will help you determine a safe and convenient location for your fireplace.
If your yard requires a retaining wall, adding an outdoor fireplace will help disguise the wall as part of the fireplace. A low retaining wall can create stone seating around the fireplace. A tall fireplace can also add privacy to a pool or hot tub by blocking the view from neighbors.
Many stores are now offering DIY outdoor fireplace kits. In reality, most of these are nothing more than small chiminea fire pits. They don’t provide much warmth or light. Larger DIY kits might be more effective, but they still have problems. Placing one stone incorrectly can result in a lopsided façade or weak foundation.
