How great are outdoor fireplaces? My friend who lived on a farm when I was growing up had one in their backyard - they really weren't as much of a city thing back then, but I love the idea of something like this in an urban setting. Some of them can get pretty luxurious, others more relaxed and casual. It's such a great way to spend a summer evening outdoors, roasting up some marshmallows without having to be at a campsite or summer cabin. Here's a little round-up of outdoor fireplaces and firepits, some for inspiration, some to buy and some you can do yourself! Check them out below.
