Some decks quickly become seldom-used expansions of the home, accommodating a couple of chairs whose cushions collect dust and a table that serves as a good base for collecting cobwebs.

Here at Rhine Landscaping, however, we want your space to be as functional as possible, and we think fireplaces are the perfect backyard accessory to make your deck the vogue place to be. Installing a fireplace, however, is an investment piece, and we also want to make sure you’re happy with your decision and do the job properly. That’s why we’re here to offer you a few tips on putting in a grate and hearth that will leave you, your family, and friends feelin’ hot, hot, hot.

Size is everything: Make sure your fireplace is to scale before having one installed. It should be large enough to heat your space, but small enough that it doesn’t turn into an overwhelming furnace that everyone seeks to dodge.

Make a Match: Your fireplace shouldn’t be completely inconsistent with the overall design of your home and deck: choose a style that is complimentary, if not a perfect match. Don’t forget to check with your local zoning codes to determine how far a fireplace has to be away from your house, and to find a location that doesn’t impede views.
