A Guide to Outdoor
Gas Fireplaces -
|Imagine that you
are sitting in your backyard on a cool, breezy night. You’re
sipping hot tea and looking at the stars. The sound of crickets
chirping and frogs croaking is nature’s symphony. The scent of
jasmine is in the air. It’s the perfect night—almost. It is a
tad cold, the air a bit too nippy. If only there was a way to
heat your outdoor space the way you do your home. Thanks to
outdoor gas fireplaces, you can.
Outdoor gas fireplaces can range from rustic simplicity to elegant
extravagance. They can be free-standing or built-in structures.
A built-in fireplace can be the centerpiece of an elaborate
outdoor living area. These fireplaces are designed by landscape
architects or designers. Some are built by pool and spa
professionals. Made of bricks and mortar, they can feature any
design elements you might desire. They can be a part of an
outdoor kitchen or near the pool. Many people are using outdoor
gas fireplaces to make their pools and hot tubs more useful
year-round. In cool months, they can sit on the deck and enjoy
hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows by the fire. Others
create an elaborate backyard oasis, complete with palm trees and
veranda—with the fireplace an intricate part of the design.
On the flip side are the smaller, less expensive portable models. Pacific
Products, for example, offers a portable outdoor gas fireplace.
This lightweight fireplace can be easily transported on camping
trips, to tailgate parties, or simply to your backyard deck.
Chimineas are another form of outdoor fireplaces. While these are not
technically gas fireplaces, some can use natural gas inserts.
Target and Sears both offer a selection of low-cost outdoor fireplaces.
These are small, portable models. You might also want to check
your local retail, department, and garden supplies stores.
Montigo is another source for outdoor gas fireplaces. An internet search for
“outdoor gas fireplace” will uncover even more resources.
