This post is all about garden fire pit ideas.
How to Choose the Right Type of Fire Pit for You
Before we get into the cute garden fire pit inspo pics, we’ll need to cover the different types of fire pits and which one may be best for your and your outdoor space.
Wood Burning Fire Pit
Wood burning fire pits are classic and add a rustic, cozy look to any garden space.
Plus, wood burning fire pits tend to be bigger (more people you gather around to make s’mores) and burn hotter (a plus if you want to use when it’s actually chilly outside).
On the other hand, wood burning fire pits of course use wood as fuel, which can produce a lot of smoke and leave a lingering scent on your clothes and hair. (Although, I personally like that smell.)
Luckily, many modern wood burning fire pit models are designed so that the airflow minimizes smoke.
To combat the smoke, make sure you use dry firewood.
Seasoned wood bundles can be purchased at most hardware stores. However, because firewood burns so quickly, it can be expensive, even compared to refilling a propane tank for a propane fire pit.
For these reasons, you may want to look into sourcing your own firewood.
Propane Fire Pit
Propane fire pits tend to be lighter, and add a sleek modern feel to your outdoor space.
A propane fire pit may be a good option for you if you want to be able to transport your fire pit easily, perhaps to another backyard party or tailgating event.
Propane fire pits are also easier to start, maintain and extinguish. Simply turn a knob to get it started, and turn it off when you’re done.
Propane fire pits also don’t put off any smoke.
However, the down side is that they also don’t put off as much heat. Propane fire pits rely on lava rocks to cover the heating element and distribute heat. To give your propane fire a little extra oomph, you can buy extra lava rocks to help disperse the heat.
