There’s no doubt that the evenings are starting to get shorter and you can feel that the end of summer, sadly, isn’t too far off.
If you’ve been trying to spend as much time as possible in your garden and aren’t quite ready to give up the joy of sitting outside, you may want to consider installing a fire pit – or for something a bit more quirky, how about a stone fireplace?
In larger gardens where you have the room for something this extravagant, this can be a great way to introduce a statement feature that’s functional too. Fire pits are still incredibly popular, but imagine the atmosphere you could create if you had a fireplace as a focal point.
A recent article in Sioux City Journal highlighted the fact that introducing a fire pit to a garden can lengthen a space’s usability, giving you the option of snuggling up outside even when it’s starting to get chillier as we move into autumn.
Owner of Bloomers Lawn and Garden Center in South Sioux City Renee Palmersheim said that having an outdoor living space can allow you to really express yourself.
“Inside you’re so confined to the way your house was built. Your outside can be an extension of who you are,” she stated.
Given that house prices are creeping up in many parts of the country, you may decide you’d like to extend your living space into the garden rather than looking to move somewhere bigger.
Property Wire recently reported that North London is a particular hotspot for property renovation in the UK at the moment, with homes in Barking and Dagenham the ones most likely to be refurbished, according to research from Plentific.
