Garden fireplaces are statement features that when incorporated into a space successfully, can improve the value of your home.


Choosing the Right Type of Outdoor Fireplace

Are you ready to transform your back garden? There are a few things you need to consider when it comes to selecting the right outdoor fireplace for you. These include portability, preferred type of fuel, style, safety, and intended use (cooking, heating, entertaining).


Fire Pits

This is by far the most popular choice when it comes to outdoor fireplaces. They come in so many different types of styles, shapes, and sizes that you are bound to find one that matches your taste and budget. While fire pits can be permanently installed in one area, most of them are portable. Wood is traditionally used to fuel fire pits, however there are plenty of options available including gas, propane, charcoal and electricity.


Fire bowls

Fire bowls are similar to fire pits, however, they offer more portability as they tend to be smaller and considerably more lightweight. This makes fire bowls a great option if you would like to move your outdoor fireplace to various areas of your garden or patio. They also come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.


Fire columns

Fire columns offer a stylish option and slim design that is perfect for smaller outdoor spaces. They are fuelled by natural gas or propane, and are mainly designed for heating (not cooking).


Fire tables

Fire tables are highly distinctive and an excellent option if your main goal is to entertain guests. The small fire at the centre of the table is typically powered by gas or electricity, and the ledges around the fire allow you to lay out food and drink. Fire tables come in various shapes as you can choose between bar fire tables, coffee fire tables, and dining fire tables.



Chimineas are mainly designed to provide heat, and are an excellent, safe addition to both large and small outdoor areas. The fire within a chiminea is covered, giving you all the warmth you require, without a naked flame.
