Our Review Of La Hacienda Outdoor Heating

Although evenings are becoming cooler, there's no reason why you can't still enjoy your garden to the full. Nathan James Dodd has been looking at the La Hacienda range of outdoor heating that makes this possible.

Especially when the clocks go back, the evening temperature usually drops fairly quickly until it's 'I'll get my fleece' time again.

But, with a patio heater, you can relax in a warm convivial environment whatever the thermometer says. And the best way to add warmth to an evening is a Mexican inspired chimenea. 

Chimeneas are reputed to have originated hundreds, if not thousands, of years ago as a vessel for cooking and baking as well as heating. They've become very popular in the States and now over here, attractive garden ornaments as well as practical patio additions.

La Hacienda manufacture a range of chimeneas, sturdily constructed with either a traditional or eye-catching contemporary design.

Authentic Chimenea Design

Displaying complete authenticity are the rustic copper effect Circles with Grill Small Clay Chimenea and the larger Banded Large Copper Chimenea, both of which sit on a steel stand. 

For something as genuinely Mexican as a Tequila Sunrise or a battered sombrero, our inclement winter may come as a shock but the Mexican clay will reliably withstand harsh weather.

Of similar appearance but constructed from bronze effect cast iron/steel or pewter steel, there are two squat chimeneas that can be fired by charcoal or wood and are perfect focal points.

Leon, Murcia, Mega, Arriba, Aspen and the Alamo chimeneas complete the traditional collection. Different sizes and designs to suit your particular requirements, they are all extremely durable, easily cleaned and maintained.

Contemporary Chimenea Style

Colorado chimeneas come in various sizes, a striking looking design resembling a rocket taking off from the Nevada desert, with steel that has been powder coated in a matt black high temperature plate. 

Resembling ancient aztec obelisks are the magnificently angular Cuba, Malmo, Manoa, and Skyline steel chimeneas, the latter three also contain a log store so that fuel is always on hand to add to the flaming stove.

Contemporary and colourful, La Hacienda's Moda and Globe firepits are made from enamelled steel with a matt black powder coated base and protective mesh lid. There are several vibrant versions but, if you desire something a little less extrovert but beautifully styled, the Boston, San Diego, Denver, Stamford and Wildfire firepits won't disappoint.

Increasingly as we embrace outdoor living and entertainment, with such a fantastic range the La Hacienda chimenea will be a practical and authentic addition to your garden, a warm focal point that encourages you to fully enjoy autumn evenings.
