Imagine walking out your backdoor and relaxing in front of a beautiful roaring fire just minutes later. Outdoor fireplaces are a quick fix for those days and nights when you want to relax in front of the fire in the privacy of your own yard without fighting the wind or other elements that sometimes make igniting a fire difficult. These outdoor landscape features enhance the ambiance of your outdoor living space and light-up instantly. They add a cozy, inviting look and feel to your overall outdoor living space and contain many benefits over traditional wood-burning fire-pits.
How many times have you thought relaxing in front of the fire, toasting marshmallows and engaging in thoughtful conversation with family and friends would be great, only to decide having a fire is just too much mess and too much trouble? If so, an Outdoor Gas Fireplace may be the solution you've been looking for. These beautiful outdoor fixtures are convenient, start-up instantly and – unlike a traditional fire pit – there’s no fussing and waiting to get the fire started. Gas fire-pits are also safer than their wood burning counterparts; they are less of a mess and do not emit embers. You’ll also enjoy the fact that gas fireplaces are less smoky and, therefore, produce less of a smell.
As far as safety is concerned, there are no smoldering ashes, wind-related fire-spread or flying sparks to worry about. That’s a huge plus over traditional fire pits, and an investment you can feel comfortable about.
You’ll also find that outdoor gas fireplaces are an incredible source of warmth with several options to choose from (range or BTUs). You can also pick a design to suit your style; there are many looks and varieties to choose from– traditional fireplace, fire pit, and fire ring. Finally, you’ll be pleased to know that outdoor fireplaces run on liquid propane or can be hooked up to your home’s natural gas output making installation and operation that much simpler.
