Outdoor Fireplace vs. Firepit - which one is your best option?

Fire PitYou undoubtedly built your outdoor patio to extend the enjoyment of your home from the inside to the outside and create an enjoyable living space beyond the walls of your home. You may have constructed an entire room or two with furniture that withstands the elements and maybe even an outdoor kitchen or grill area to really take outdoor living to the next level, and without a doubt you have some great plants or trees.

With the seasons changing and the colder winter months coming in, there is not a better time to get rolling on the best aspect of your outdoor living space - an outdoor fireplace or a firepit. So which one is best for you?

If you’re looking for a campfire feel with mobility and flexibility in location, a portable firepit is your best option. While it doesn’t offer the anchored and homey benefit of the built in fireplace option, it still carries its own elegance in that it can be found in a number of different styles, including industrial style metal, copper, iron, or even stone. Also, the ability to move it anywhere allows you to change up your outdoor decor to suit your mood or design at any time.

If you’re more into the idea of a permanent design with options in brick, tile, marble or stone that’s protected from the elements (even wind that kicks up a lot of smoke) a built in fireplace is your best bet. As far as design goes, let your imagination run wild. Built in fireplaces can be wood fueled or fueled by natural gas and work much like your indoor fireplace would work.

Whether it’s with a fireplace or a firepit, the aesthetic appeal and mood that a backyard fire brings can’t be beat and the professionals at Mansfield Landscaping are here to help you choose the right option for your existing or future landscape design.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

Just had Mansfield landscape do our yard and am very happy with not only the work done, but with the large size and healthy quality of the plants and palms. The crew was wonderful and completed a major job in a half day. Extra plants were added and all the beds received extra mulching at no extra charge. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a good, reliable landscape company.

We hired Mansfield Landscaping recently and were pleased with the results. Steve,Ron and their crews showed up when they said they would and finished when they said they would. The selection of plants, shrubs and trees were numerous and all were very healthy. They assisted with the design and wanted to make sure we were pleased with the final product, which we were. I would use them again and highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone who is considering an upcoming landscaping project.

George Harrington

The Mansfield crew did a terrific job talking with us about what we wanted, and where we wanted the plantings. They brought out a big selection of plants to chose from. The Mansfield folks were very polite and willing to help us in anyway as we determined what we wanted installed. What we wanted moved from existing plants. And care and feeding of the newly installed plants and palms. Ron in particular was very helpful as well as the regular crew foreman. Scott the lighting and irrigation guy was very through. We would highly recommend Steve Mansfield and his company for landscaping work in The Villages.

Used Manfield and I am satisfied. Called him on Monday and he came the same day and gave an estimate and the work was completed on Thursday. I like that.

We have just completed a large landscaping job with Steve Mansfield and are totally pleased and impressed with the quality of the work, the overall appearance and the end product. The job was completed within a week of the estimate and far below other estimates. With those estimates the jobs could not have been started for over a month, at a much higher cost. We went to the nursery with our outside pictures and chose the specific trees we wanted in our yard. This was a long process, but well worth the effort. Steve likes to talk, but he estimated the job that we wanted with the exact trees we wanted to our total satisfaction.

My wife and I presented our landscape ideas to several landscapers in The Villages but no one quite made an impression until we contacted Mansfield Landscaping. We viewed several of their job sites and were fascinated by what we saw and in talking to the homeowners, knew we were headed in the right direction. Ron and his crew took our thoughts and within two days turned them into reality. Their talent and experience is reflected in the work they do and the end result was beyond our expectations. Once again, thanks Mansfield Landscaping for a job well done.

Ed & Janet Ott

My husband & I are very pleased with both the staff and the work done by Mansfield Landscaping. They are very hard working and knowledgeable people who have given us a wonderful, relaxing new water feature and yard. Their work ethic is second to none and our job was completed in a very timely fashion - from our first visit to the nursery to the estimate and the eventually completion of the job! We want to thank Steve, Ron, John and all of their employees for creating our new look! We love it!
