Choosing the Right Outdoor Fire Features

Fire features add ambiance, warmth, and light to your backyard activities. Whether you’re gathered with friends and family, warming yourself on cool nights, or stargazing, modern fire elements are safe, beautiful and easy to operate. Depending on space and budget, here are 3 good options:


Typical inside many homes, the fireplace is a classic choice. Perfect for multiple people, this popular option creates a romantic, cozy setting for intimate gatherings with friends and family. These fireplaces are enclosed and easy to use even on windy nights. You can choose between natural gas, propane, or wood burning fireplaces with a variety of styles and functions. An outdoor fireplace is sure to become a rustic focal point in your backyard.

Fire Pit

This option is ideal for entertaining large groups and evokes the feeling of sitting around a campfire. It can be low to the ground or set into a foundation to provide elevation. It can be made from a variety of materials including brick, stone, or concrete. A built-in firepit provides a more upscale appearance than a portable one. If you host a lot of parties or are looking for a place to gather, this may be a good option for you.

Fire Bowl

Another great option for entertaining, a fire bowl adds a dash of modern flair. They’re usually made of copper, concrete, steel, cast iron, or bronze and often come with legs and a mesh cover. Fueled by natural gas, propane, wood, or clean-burning gel, you can choose based on the type of flame and smell you’d prefer. Some are even designed to accommodate grilling. They come in a variety of sizes and designs, from very basic to downright opulent. Opt for one that’s filled with colored fiberglass, lava rock, and other fire-retardant decorative fillers, or go for a rustic design with a copper bowl and iron details.
