Amy Matthews: Landscaping can add instant interest to front or backyard. And can actually increase your homes' equity. Here's what you need to know, if you are having an outdoor fireplace built in your backyard.
First, the location for the fireplace is mapped out. Then a trench is dug for the foundation. Next, the cement is poured and allowed to cure for at least 24 hours. Then cinder blocks are used to build the fireplace. For larger structures, it's best to hire a stone mason. Next, a stone veneer is added. The fireplace is finished off with a cap rock and a log burner is installed. Your new fireplace add style and equity to your home. I am Amy Matthews from DIY network, sweat equity.
