When the sun stays out longer, it’s normal to want to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. One of the best ways to make your backyard more inviting is with a new feature. If you want the fun to continue past dinner and into the evening, you really can’t go wrong with a well-contained fire.


Set the Scene with Fire Features


There are a variety of different fire features to help you enjoy your space even more. Backyards transform into great outdoor living areas when you have a fire pit or an outdoor fireplace. These features help you get outside and enjoy your backyard more—beyond just mowing the lawn!


You can also think about your grill. There are different options for your outdoor kitchen area. You don’t have to stay inside. You can choose from propane or natural gas for your grill setup. When you know a little more about the differences, you can figure out how you want to fuel your fires with every feature on your property.


Wood, Propane, or Natural Gas


Obviously, the traditional outdoor fire starts with wood, but burning wood can sometimes be restricted by certain municipalities. There are better options for the modern family. You don’t have to mess with kindling and keeping a stockpile of wood handy when you turn to propane or natural gas.


Portable propane tanks can be easy to use for your grill. It burns clean and replacing the tanks requires minimal effort. You can get a fire blazing in no time. Some homes even have a large propane tank onsite. This might be a good way to run fuel to other outdoor fire features like fire pits and fireplaces, but it means making sure you have tanks full of fuel. You aren’t going to want to plan an evening with friends and then run out! Don’t worry, you still have another option.


Natural gas is actually better for the environment and your air quality. It also tends to be a lot cheaper than propane. Natural gas burns clean, and with a permanent installation, you can start up a fire in your fire pit or fireplace whenever you want. You don’t have to refill a propane tank because the natural gas can come to you just through a secure gas line. Hire a professional to install your system, and you’ll be saving time and money compare to propane.
