Stone or Paver Fire Pits & Fire Features add enjoyment, value

Besides providing warmth and entertainment, a fire pit or fireplace can add to the value of the home. When asked why a fire pit or fireplace was an important addition to the landscape, homeowner responses went right to the basics:

“A warm fire on a cool Minnesota evening, with family and friends, roasting marshmallows and having fun."
“Watching a fire is a peaceful way to end the day.”
