Roasting Marshmallows and Making the Most of Beautiful Fall Weather

If you are a fan of fall, do you have a custom patio and fire pit at your home? For many of us, fall is the very best time of year—and the time we most enjoy being outdoors on a deck or patio.

Family making s'mores

As soon as temperatures begin to drop, signaling summer is in the rear-view mirror, we pull out the sweaters and start thinking about bonfires. At the grocery, we find it impossible to walk past the marshmallows … the chocolate bars … the graham crackers … S’MORES!

Patios and Fire Pits – Bringing Generations Together

Spending time outdoors around the fire pit is a great way to bring the generations together. If you have a young family with small children, you get the joy of showing them how to cook the perfect toasted marshmallow. Or is it the grandparents teaching the little ones how to turn the stick slowly to reach just the right golden hue without catching fire? With teenagers, it’s got to be a marshmallow-flaming contest! Meanwhile, empty nesters can relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of a bright fire and gooey sweetness and chocolate pressed between two graham crackers.

Custom patio with fire pit

Whether it’s with child-centered excitement or quiet nostalgia, can there be a better place to enjoy fall than a custom patio with a fire pit?

Archadeck of Columbus is the area’s premier patio and hardscapes builder, and our new patios are very popular this time of year! We custom-design patios and vertical hardscapes like fire pits, fireplaces, seating walls, steps and walkways to create the perfect outdoor setting for your enjoyment. We love designing and building patios! Unilock pavers and blocks are among our favorite hardscape materials for their durability, beauty and wide range of styles. If you think of a patio as a rectangular slab of concrete, you are in for a wonderful surprise. Taking a stroll through our patio and hardscapes gallery is a great way to start seeing the possibilities for your home!

Would adding a beautiful patio to your home give you the perfect excuse to add a fire pit as well? Or are you thinking, who needs an excuse to have a fire pit?! Whichever way you look at it, you can’t go wrong with a patio and fire pit combination by Archadeck of Columbus. Our custom hardscape designs balance artistry and function to achieve the look and feel you want in your outdoor living area.

What is a Deck, Patio and Fire Pit Combination?

For many Columbus-area homeowners, a patio—no matter how spacious or elaborate—is simply not enough. For some, the perfect outdoor living space pairs a wood or low-maintenance deck with a paver patio and perhaps other hardscape elements as well. Don’t forget the fire pit or fireplace!

Patio 3D design

A deck, patio and fire pit combination increases the functionality of your outdoor living space. If you enjoy entertaining, you’ll appreciate the expansiveness of combining two outdoor areas. We like to say that a deck and patio combination is more than the sum of its parts. It’s true! We will design your deck and patio combination with an eye for balance and harmony. The use of contrasting materials—wood or composite decking beside a curving paver patio, for example—helps achieve that harmony. Our goal is to create a soothing outdoor space you’ll enjoy throughout the year, but especially during the bright, cool days of fall!
