Enjoy the Beauty and Ease of a Gas Fire Pit

Written by Expert Contributor Scott Magness, Scott’s Fireplace Products

It’s that time of year when warmer weather makes us want to spend as much time as possible outside. What a great time to bring the indoors out, and think about adding a gas fire pit to your outdoor space!

These days you’ll find outdoor fire pits in many yards, but some municipalities have ordinances against burning wood fires outside. The perfect solution is to add a stylish, gas fire pit that offers beauty, ease of use and warmth (but only when you want heat), and becomes the focal point of the back yard!

Some Things You May Not Know About Gas Fire Pits

Gas burns cleaner than wood, which makes it easier on everyone’s lungs. You won’t have those clouds of smoke choking you or your neighbors, and there’s no waiting for the embers to burn down before you can leave the area or go inside. Plus, there won’t be any unsafe flying embers or unpredictable flames that can make a wood fire a disaster waiting to happen.

Automatic ignition makes starting and stopping your gas fire pit a breeze. Whether your unit is natural gas or propane, there’s no unpleasant smell.

You can safely place your gas fire pit just about anywhere, including under an overhang or canopy or even in a gazebo.

You get more value for your hard-earned money because you can enjoy your gas fire pit more often, even for brief periods of time, because there’s no wood to burn down.

Multiple uses, you have the flexibility to convert your gas fire pit into a standard table. It’s a great way to enjoy that extra surface where you can eat a meal or play card games. Then you can switch it back to a gas fire pit with the snap of a finger.

A gas fire pit in your yard creates an oasis that everyone can enjoy, even older children because they’re that safe.

You can find gas fire pits in literally any shape, style or size you can imagine, so it’s one of the fastest ways to add ambiance to your yard or any outdoor area. For a uniquely beautiful custom look, you can place glass beads inside the burner, like they show on all the home makeover shows. And you can even alternate the styles and colors of the beads, depending on what look you want to achieve.
