Adding a firepit or fireplace to your backyard can be a great way to make the space more versatile and help to ensure that it is usable year round. The ambience provided by the flickering flames and soft glow will make your backyard a great place to relax on the patio and converse with your friends, family, or neighbors. Chilly nights will not be a problem after you install one of these great fire features from Armand’s Discount.
Types of Backyard Firepits
Check out all the great backyard firepits on our website. We stock products from three outstanding companies: American Fyre Designs, Regency, and Camp Chef.
All of the products from American Fyre Design are constructed from glass fiber reinforced concrete. This innovative building material can easily withstand constant exposure to the elements without any visible aging or weathering. Camp Chef’s products, on the other hand, focus on function. All of their outdoor designs are crafted with the chef in mind. Cooking outside will be a snap with their outdoor ovens and fireplaces.
Backyard Firepit #1: Firefalls
Firefalls combine the relaxation of a trickling fountain or waterfall with the warmth and light of a traditional fireplace. These outdoor fire features include a backdrop of flowing water – usually trickling down a tile mosaic or a wall of stone or brick – and a small gas fireplace in the front. This unique installation can be used with just the water feature, the fireplace alone, or the two simultaneously. Use your backyard firefall to provide an unbeatable ambience year round.
Backyard Firepit #2: Fire Tables
Fire tables encourage friendly conversation while your group is gathered around the flickering flames. These amazing tables include a small gas fireplace in the center surrounded by a stone or tile mosaic tabletop. Your family will be able to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or a home cooked meal gathered around your fire table, making your backyard a multipurpose space that will appeal to kids and adults alike.
Backyard Firepit #3: Fire Bowls
Fire bowls are one of the most popular backyard fire features due to their simple, modern silhouette. They are available in a variety of colors and sizes, making it easy to find one that will fit in with your existing outdoor decorations. If you have a limited amount of space available for your fire feature, consider a 32” fire bowl. Those with larger backyards might opt for a larger model – up to 48” in diameter.
Some fire bowls come with the option to include a water feature, giving you the best of fire bowls and firefalls all in one. The natural stone bowl comes in a variety of neutral colors, but the stones inside your fire bowl can range in color from a dark charcoal grey to a bright blue, depending on your style preference. Most fire bowls use propane or natural gas, making them extremely easy to clean and maintain.
Backyard Firepit #4: Fire Urns
The basic design of a fire urn is similar to that of the fire bowl. The main difference between the two is that fire bowls tend to be shorter and wider while fire urns tend to be tall and narrow. One popular use of the fire urn is to line a path or walkway. A series of fire urns can be an easy way to dress up a garden path and keep the area lit during late night gatherings.
Types of Backyard Fireplaces
We stock a wide selection of outdoor fireplaces from a range of suppliers. Our partners include Heatilator, Heat-N-Glo, Napoleon, and Regency. Their selection includes a range of wood burning, gas, and electric fireplaces that are versatile enough that anyone will be able to find the perfect fireplace for their outdoor space.
Backyard Fireplace #1: Wood Stoves
One major benefit of having a wood burning outdoor fireplace is that the maintenance and cleanup is much easier than that of an indoor wood-burning fireplace. It is hard to beat the smell of a wood burning fire, and if you are planning to use your new fireplace for cooking, having the option to include hickory chips in your fireplace can be a huge selling point.
Backyard Fireplace #2: Electric Fireplaces
On the other end of the spectrum are electric fireplaces. They are by far the most low maintenance option. You will never have to sweep ashes, chop wood, or replace propane tanks. If you are looking for an easy to use and maintain option, install an electric fireplace in your backyard.
