Outdoor Fireplaces: Options and Costs

Do you enjoy cooking outdoors? If so, then you’ll love outdoor fireplaces! Outdoor fireplaces are a great way to enjoy the summer weather and cook delicious meals. 

In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of outdoor fireplaces and their costs. We will also provide tips on how to choose the right outdoor fireplace for your needs. So, whether you are looking for a DIY project or a premade kit, we have you covered!

What are Your Options?

With outdoor fireplaces, your options are not limited. Here at Round Grove, we want to make sure that you find the right one for you. So, let’s take a look at some of the options you have for your own outdoor fireplace.

Hearth or No Hearth

An important decision is whether you want your outdoor fireplace to have a hearth. A hearth is the platform in front of the fireplace where you can rest wood or kindling. Some people prefer to have a hearth because it makes adding wood to the fire easier. Others find that a hearth gets in the way and prefer not to have one.


When it comes to outdoor fireplaces, size does matter. The size of your outdoor fireplace will be determined by the amount of space you have in your backyard and how often you plan on using it. If you have a large backyard and entertain often, you may want to consider a larger outdoor fireplace.

Prebuilt or Assemble Yourself

At Round Grove, we only sell pre built outdoor fireplaces. However, there are some companies that allow you to assemble the fireplace yourself. If you are handy and enjoy DIY projects, this may be a great option for you. However, if you prefer to leave the construction to the professionals, then a pre built outdoor fireplace is the way to go.

Stone or Metal

When it comes to outdoor fireplaces, you also have the choice of stone or metal. Stone outdoor fireplaces are more durable and provide a more natural look. Metal outdoor fireplaces are less expensive but require more maintenance.

Fire Brick

Another important consideration is whether you want your outdoor fireplace to be made of fire brick. Fire brick is a type of clay that can withstand high temperatures without breaking down. It is also resistant to moisture, so it will not crack or crumble in the rain.

What Does an Outdoor Fireplace Cost?

Now that we have gone over some of the options for outdoor fireplaces, let’s discuss cost. The average price for a premade outdoor fireplace kit is $1,500-$9,000. The cost of your outdoor fireplace will be determined by the size, materials, and features you choose.

Larger outdoor fireplaces will cost more than smaller ones. If you want a custom outdoor fireplace, that will also cost more. Some features that can add to the cost of your outdoor fireplace include a pizza oven combo, lighting, and built-in storage.
