‘Pre-made fire pits are the most common form of fire pits and can be purchased from a store.[1] These are commonly made of pre cast concrete or metal and/or a combination of metal table and stone. They are usually natural gas, propane (LP) or bio ethanol. Wood burning fire pits made of metal are also quite common but under increasing scrutiny due to fire bans and air particulate emissions. Natural gas and propane burners in these sort of pre fabricated vessels are certified under ANSI (American), CSA (Canadian) and CE (European) standards. Unregulated and uncertified fire pit burners are increasingly being scrutinized by regulatory authorities and being denied permits. Fire pits have recommended clearance to combustibles and require at least 5 feet above the flame and 16″ circumference from the exterior perimeter of the vessel.

Essentially, to make a fire pit only a hole is required in order to safely contain a fire. This can be as simple as digging a hole in the ground, or as complex as hollowing out a brick or rock pillar. A wood-burning fire pit should be located at least ten feet (three metres) away from structures for safety. Use of a fire pit in adverse conditions should be avoided, and basic fire safety precautions apply.’

5 BENEFITS OF DESIGNING FIRE WITHIN YOUR LANDSCAPE

1) Warmth

Sitting outdoors in your beautifully renovated landscape can be cold at times. Adding the heat from a fire feature offers a more comfortable setting for relaxing outdoors, reading, enjoying a glass of wine, or socializing. The warmth of a fire also allows us to use our outdoor living areas earlier in the spring season, and later into the fall months. 

2) Beauty & Ambiance

Adding a fire feature to your landscape design creates a space that is beautiful and compelling. Having a fire pit or fire table, offers a great place to sit and watch the fire burn. Whatever fire feature you choose would be a beautiful addition to your creative landscape design, and may possibly be the most valuable part of your landscape investment.

3) Entertaining

Nothing adds to a summer patio party like a cozy outdoor fireplace or pit. When integrated into thoughtful landscaping designs, outdoor fireplaces extend your home and available party space from inside to outside. A fire pit is a natural gathering place, where you and your friends can sip some wine while conversing and laughing on a warm spring, summer, or fall night.

4) Cooking

While they may not be as accurate as a gas grill, a fire pit or fireplace is still a valuable asset for cooking. If you’re planning to put a fire pit in your yard in the future, ask our CREATIVE team, or be sure to discuss it with a CREATIVEpro to include a fire unit that can be used for cooking. Lets not ever forget the art of simply throwing a few marshmallows on a stick, or cooking a hotdog over an open flame!

5) A Great Investment

“A well-managed landscape can add up to 28 per cent to the overall value of your home,” says landscaper Ed Hansen, who owns Hansen Lawn & Garden. “The key is that you need to have a well-designed, well-executed, low-maintenance (plan).”

The CREATIVE Benefits of Outdoor Lighting

Kitchener-Waterloo & Surrounding Areas in Southern Ontario are participating in the Landscape Lighting trend!

Landscape lighting or garden lighting refers to the use of outdoor illumination of private gardens and public landscapes; for the enhancement and purposes of safety, nighttime aestheticsaccessibility, security, recreation and sports, and social and event uses.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landscape_lighting

Want to add a dramatic effect to your landscape project?  It is simple with the right lighting! We supply top quality landscape lighting to suit every size of project and application. We have lighting specialists on hand to make sure you have everything you need to light up your clients properties.

Accent your water feature, pool, and other focal points at night!
Accent your water feature, pool, and other focal points at night!

There are many reasons and to consider outdoor lighting as a way to accent your landscape.  From years of experience servicing the outdoor lighting needs within the landscape sector, we have helped many clients experience the benefits of residential and commercial lighting systems. Whether you want to increase the security of your property or spend more time enjoying the warm weather during the spring and summer months when the weather is nice, there are many year round benefits provided by outdoor lighting after the sun goes down.

Landscape lighting is not a new concept or product category, yet it is certainly trending fast these past couple of years. 

It is forecasted to witness a growth 8.0% during 2018–2023. Growing adoption of energy-saving and cost-efficient lighting products and increased government focus on energy conservation are the major factors driving the market growth.

Lets Review the 5 key Benefits Of Landscape & Garden Lighting

1) Appearance

The obvious advantage to landscape lighting is the enhancement to your home’s appearance. The lights make your home and landscaping visible even after dark. When positioned properly, landscape lights make architectural features of the home pop out. Lights pointed at your favourite plants make the most of your landscaping at all times of night and day. Outdoor lights add a sense of drama to your landscaping. The illumination makes your house stand out by boosting the curb appeal at night. Have you ever turned onto a street and noticed that one home stand out at night beyond all of the other neighbouring properties? Well it was probably the attractive and professional appeal of a properly lit landscape and home. At night a home can be even more attractive then in the day. By highlighting not only the accents of the landscape or home, but projecting shadows by design throughout the driveway, living space, or planting areas, a home can really draw a new character in the evening or during the night.

The warmth and ambiance of night lighting is invaluable!

2) Functionality

Landscape lighting increases the functionality of your outdoor spaces. With proper lighting, you can use your front and backyard long after the sun goes down. Flood lights attached to the house provide a large amount of general light to brighten a patio area or a portion of the yard. Lights attached to deck posts illuminate the area for late-night dining or conversations. For additional lighting around a patio tables, under railings, stone copings, steps, and any other area please contact us or visit our CREATIVE showroom.

With appropriate landscape lighting, you will be able to enjoy all areas of your property, and finished landscapes zones. Your comfort level for using the hardscape walkways, or sheds and other storage areas will be enhanced, as the space will just be more inviting than it may have been prior.

3) Enhance Security and Safety

Illuminating your property after dark can also be an effective way of dissuading unwanted guests from poking around on your property. Lighting systems can help to keep your invited guests safe after dark. Illuminating entrance points, like doors and windows, with lights makes it difficult for a potential burglar to break in unnoticed. When choosing where to place landscape lighting for security, consider the darkest areas of the yard and the places near the home where a burglar could enter. If you have a security camera system be sure to consider the placement of lighting for best visual results of each camera location.

Place lights around the swimming pool, along walkways and near the terrace or patio areas that get frequent traffic so as to reduce the risk of falls or other injuries.

Properly illuminated steps and pathways is much safer at night.

4) Accentuate Landscaping and Improve Property Value

CREATIVE outdoor lighting highlights the beauty of your building as well as increases the value of your property.   Lighting your exterior is considered an added amenity by prospective buyers and appraisers, as it represents a lifetime investment back into the properties.  Commercial applications, with well-done landscape lighting design are often considered to be more appealing to customers, and attract more business than unlit dark business.  

Installing exterior light systems is an excellent way to accentuate your commercial or residential property’s landscaping, improving both aesthetics and visibility.  Our light design experts will provide you with options to customize your installation, whether you wish to accent a fountain or simply light up the walkways or your company logo.  CREATIVE has the product knowledge to help you highlight the best aspects of a property and its surroundings, or our installation network can help!

5) Corporate Presence, Image, and Awareness

We understand the need for corporate logos, signage, operations, office, and image to be highlighted 24-7. You want your business to be well presented to the marketplace at all times, and landscape lighting offers the ability to do so in the evening and night hours. Illuminate your corporate landscape around the office, the wonderful trees around the perimeter, the display areas you may have, and of course your road-side signage. For corporate lighting, we recommend you work direct with our team for proper advise on lighting fixtures, placement, and for a list of CREATIVEpro’s who can assist in the quoting and installation process.
