We can prebuild you one to fit over the garage door. We buil our pergolas out of Cypress and can prestain them. Check out our pegolas on www.myoutdoorrooms.com Look at the pergola over the kitchen. We can do this same style over the garage.

COASTROAD Hearth & Patio
Beautiful work, Aven Williamson, and excellent answer!

Wood burning fireplaces produce a pretty incredible amount of RADIANT heat once an ember bed is established. The "Grate Wall of Fire" maximizes that effect. Gas fireplaces . . . not so much.

The other unique thing about a single-sided fireplace is that the trapezoidal shape of the firebox reflects the heat in that one direction. Without anything to reflect against, the 360 degree effect of a firepit tends to seem like a lot less heat.

Unfortunately, as sub-visible light, it only heats one side of you, so you might have to move around a little on an especially cold evening to keep your other side from going numb.

Brilliant! Lighting & Design
The uplighting effect can be achieved with a variety of fixtures and lamps.
Lumiere by Cooper Lighting is one high quality source... http://www.cooperindustries.com/content/public/en/lighting/brands/lumiere.html
Hadco is another good one... http://www.hadco.com/Hadco/Public/ProductsLandscape.aspx
Look at the Accent and InGround lines with a Lighting Designer or your Landscape Designer to get your desired effect. Good luck!

I would agree with the Lumiere product and the Hadco as a budget alternative. The real key is the lamp selection based upon the trees you are trying to light (size, type, etc).

Most manufactures of fire place kits will have info on their websites. Many offer "how to" videos. The most important thing to do when installing a fire place or pit is the base. Make sure you do your research regarding the ground / base preparation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to 3 Unexpected Reasons to Have an Outdoor Fireplace
3. Light and warmth. In addition to physical warmth, fireplaces add a dramatic light and a welcoming invitation to a space. In this garden, the visual warmth of the fireplace is enhanced by applying strategic lighting to the fiery leaves of the trees that flank its chimney. I would happily put on a sweater to enjoy the cozy warmth of this patio.
