These four fall fire features are a great way to compliment your Phoenix backyard living environment!

It doesn’t matter who you are or where you came from, one thing’s for certain: we’re all fascinated with fire. Scintillating and tempting our more wild and dangerous side, fire has captivated audiences for the past several thousand years.  You can capture the attention of your friends and family in your own backyard by incorporating any one of these fiery patio and garden features:


Fire Pits

The fire pit is the easiest way to add a budget-friendly fire feature to your Arizona backyard.  Many fire pits are sold with a propane hose and the pit itself, while others come already installed in a table, a bowl, or another features.  These pits are often crafted while incorporating a variety of natural materials, such as wood and charcoal.


Creating an “indoor” space outdoors is all the rage right now, so if you’re looking to jump in on a trend that’s sure to be appreciated for the next several years to come, consider building an outdoor fireplace.  Outdoor fireplaces can come in virtually any shape and design, and can be propane, wood, or charcoal-powered.


Looking for something with a bit more old-school personality?  Then consider adding a chimeneas to your landscape.  These fire features are taller and more ornate then most other fire features, and can come in a variety of different designs that are sure to suit most patio and garden areas.

Fire Bowls

Fire bowls are definitely for those who want to add a touch of “drama” to their landscape.  Fire bowls can be placed flat on the ground or they can be featured on a towering column, or they can even be found right in the center of a pool.  They can contain any number of materials, such as ceramic logs, lava rock, or they can even feature water.  Attractive and always a favorite, homeowners can easily find the right fire bowl that suits their budget and tastes.
