Convenient and Safe Ambience
You may ask what is stopping you from simply building a big bonfire in your backyard when you want to enjoy a fire. Well, first of all, you can’t build a bonfire in the middle of your deck and relax in your comfortable patio furniture. With a fireplace, you can. Secondly, it may not be very safe, or legal for that matter. Finally, for a bonfire to be safe, it must be built away from everything and much of the heat it creates is easily lost. An outdoor fireplace, however, can be installed in a semi-enclosed space and create a much cozier ambiance to enjoy.
