Written by: Abby Weingarten

Take a look at the various qualities, both advantages and disadvantages, that outdoor fireplaces and fire pits offer and find the one that best fits your lifestyle.

One important tip to keep in mind while browsing this selection: many communities have established burn bans, which eliminate the ability to burn wood. This has led to more manufacturers offering fire features that utilize natural gas or propane and include lava rock, gas logs or crushed glass. Check with your neighborhood, township or county officials to learn about any fire restrictions in your area.
