Now more than ever, we need our backyards as tranquil space to relax and recharge. Here are a few ideas for creating a relaxing and joyful space in your backyard.
Whether it is a fire pit, fire place, fire bowl, any fire feature is sure to become a focal point and central gathering place of your landscape design.
Outdoor fire features are generally divided into two categories based on the type of fuel that they use: natural gas and wood. We have also included propane fire tables as an another choice to consider.
Authentic wood burning backyard campfire.
A backyard classic, without question wood-burning fire pits and fireplaces are unmatched in rustic ambiance.
Gas fireplace with glass on two sides merges indoor and outdoor spaces.
The initial installation require a gas line but natural gas fire features are without a doubt the simplest option. There is no wood to buy or tanks of propane to refill. Just turn it on and enjoy.
This propane fire table can be moved around the patio as needed, adding flexibility to the space.
These are specially designed tables that contain a small fire powered by the same propane as your grill. Look for models with larger table tops for more space for setting down food or drinks. A hexagonal or round design will accommodate more people than a square design without taking up more space on your deck or patio.
Natural gas fireplace with a modern style.
Wood, natural gas, or propane? Make your choice based on your personal preferences and situation. Does anyone in your family have asthma? Are you in a dense urban area or country lot with no neighbors but the birds? Do you like the challenge of building a fire, or the instant gratification of simply turning on the heat?
