Outdoor Fire Features Brazos Valley, Bryan, College Station & Surrounding Areas

Fall is a glorious time of year that allows Brazos Valley homeowners a chance to really enjoy their backyard spaces. With the cooler evenings and nights, fall is the perfect time to sit out on the patio, make a nice fire, and just enjoy the presence of your family. We must be honest and admit that we have a few favorites when it comes to fire features. We understand that every home is different and not all of our favorites will be yours, but here are two of the fire features that we absolutely love.

Gas Fire Pits

If you are a bit more adventurous, a gas fire pit might be a great option for you. They are plumbed with gas lines which provide fuel for the fire, and usually have a top layer of stone, ceramic “logs”, or even special glass pebbles that glow as the fire flames up through them. This is a great fire feature that will have all of your friends and family talking. While gas fire pits are usually more expensive than simpler wood-burning options, once you experience their beauty and ease of use, you will likely find them to be worth every penny!

Outdoor Fireplaces

The second and most involved option is the outdoor fireplace. Built to resemble a traditional indoor fireplace complete with hearth and chimney, outdoor fireplaces are permanent structures usually constructed from stone or brick. They can be built into a covered patio or free-standing, and either gas powered or wood-burning. An outdoor fireplace perfectly merges the charm of gathering fireside with the excitement of a natural outdoor setting. Trust us, there is nothing like curling up before an outdoor fireplace with a mug of something hot and tasty!

The great thing about a fire feature is that it can be custom-tailored to fit your needs as well as your home. Whether you picture a solitary spot to sip your favorite beverage while staring into the flames, or plan to host fun-filled evenings of sing-alongs and marshmallow roasts with friends and family, there is a perfect fire feature for you! Which is your favorite?
