Roasting marshmallows with the kids. Enjoying an evening warmed by an outdoor fire. These are all things people enjoy, which is is why Outdoor Fire features have become so popular across backyards in America. An outdoor fire feature can dramatically change your outdoor living space for the better. But what's right for you? Let us guide you to what will be the best option for your backyard.

Here are a few tips that will help you decide on the look and feel you want to achieve.

Choosing an Outdoor Fireplace or Fire pit?

1. Cost - The main reason why people chose between a fire pit or outdoor fireplace, is the cost. This is due to the difference in the amount of skill, and materials needed.

2. Space Needed - Although an outdoor fireplace is typically bigger, you may need more space for a fire pit.  This is due to the fact that it is nice to create of an outdoor living space around the firepit with chairs and other outdoor entertaining features.

3. Heat - An outdoor fireplace does not radiate a ton of heat, it is usually a showpiece or focal point of a landscape.

Wood burning or gas burning?

Why gas burning?

1. Ease of use - after a long day of work, it is nice to be able to start a fire simply by hitting a switch.

2. Clean up - there is none (except when Marshmallow drips on the glass or lava rock)!

Why wood burning?

People usually go with wood burning for two reasons:

1. They love burning wood!  The sound, the smell, the warm feeling, and the price! Some gas pits can increase the price.

Once you decide on wood or gas, the next step is designing the look you want to achieve. In addition to money, the main thing people consider is how the fire pit will fit into their current backyard . On a 'formal patio', using an outdoor fire pit kit, with thin veneer might be perfect.  Whereas if you'd like something more natural, surrounded by grass, simply using the earth as a base, and lining with stone might be more ideal.  Check out additional design ideas on our fire pit page

2.  In many parts of the country, natural gas might not be available, or too expensive to pipe to your fire feature. Some firepits will run on a propane tank, but if there is nowhere to hide it, it might take away from the look you want.
