Fire Pit and Fire Logs 

A fire pit can be built into the ground or part of your patio. You can customize features, such as the color and shape of the pavers and the size and shape of the fire pit. Use a self-contained fire log for safety by lighting a fire starter and dropping it inside a pre-drilled hole in the log itself. Simply remove the paper, light included start stick, drop in the pre-drilled hole, and enjoy for an hour and a half.

Portable Fireplaces 

Low-cost portable fireplaces have become a popular option, allowing you to move the fireplace to different locations. It is traditionally designed to be situated low to the ground, making them an ideal feature to center seating around. Available in various shapes, sizes, and materials, great for keeping warm and even roasting marshmallows. Make sure to situate your fireplace in a safe location- keep in mind that they should be completely free and clear of all low-hanging branches, bushes or shrubbery, or any other elements that might be flammable, like dry grass. 

Custom Outdoor Fireplaces

If you prefer a custom-built outdoor fireplace, you have more options to design and create exactly what you are looking for. Materials for outdoor fireplaces can range from brick to stone to concrete or metal, and you can choose to fuel it with either gas or wood. Unlike fire pits, outdoor fireplaces are constructed with a flue to direct smoke up the chimney rather than out into the seating area or yard.
