Enjoy the cooler, crisp fall evenings with a stylish and durable fire pit, fireplace insert, or chiminea.
Fire pits have been around for hundreds of years and are growing in popularity. Fire pits can be permanent or portable and are offered in a variety of sizes and styles. Most fire pits are fueled one of two ways – wood burning or gas/propane. Generally, gas/propane fire pits have lava rocks or ceramic logs. Portable outdoor fire pits are the perfect investment for people who want an affordable outdoor, low maintenance fire without the expense or space requirement of a custom built outdoor fire pit or solid stone outdoor fireplace structure.

A chiminea is perhaps the original outdoor fireplace. Traditional versions are manufactured from clay, like a pot, and can be very fragile; newer types are made from metal or iron. The chiminea's recognizable shape, with its rounded body and cylindrical, flaring stovepipe is an ageless design. Chimeneas should be placed on a brick, stone or concrete surface for safety.
Outdoor Fireplace Tips
Chase away the chill in the coming months with the addition of a fire pit, chiminea, or outdoor fireplace to your backyard. These options allow you to spend more time outdoors with your family as cooler weather arrives. Our team of experts has put together a few tips to enjoy the changing season:
- Place a portable fire pit away from the house, tree branches, fences, or anything else that might be flammable.
- Just like indoors, never burn chemically treated wood.
- Metal fire pits and clay chimineas can produce a lot of heat; so don't try to move them for at least a day after the fire is out.
- Never use gasoline or other flammable liquid to start a fire. Use kindling, newspaper, and dry logs instead.
- Don't leave any type of fire unattended.
