Custom features are always an option – fire features can run the length of the pool or can be coupled with water fountains. Custom fire features are limited only by the budget and the imagination, but there are plenty of DIY options for budget-conscious homeowners as well. Fire pits are a great weekend project for an ambitious DIYer and can be created from re-purposed barrels, landscaping pavers, or concrete blocks.

Fire features can cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on the materials and how much of the work you do yourself – and on the labor involved with piping and completing the hookup for any gas source. Fire features are fueled by wood, propane, gel fuel, or natural gas. Wood is an affordable option, but requires a source and dry, sizable storage areas. Natural gas is also fairly inexpensive, but can require the labor involved with installing lines. Propane is also readily available and convenient, but can have an odor some people find objectionable, while gel fuel is growing in popularity and allows for a fire feature to be portable, but can be difficult to find and does not put off as much heat as other fuel sources.
Last but not least, you’ll want to consider accessories for your fire feature and should consider safety first! Safety covers and fire pit covers, for instance, protect not only your guests, but also your investment. Faux log sets for gas-burning features offer an authentic look, while ceramic rocks are durable and cost-effective. You may also want to consider splurging for remote operation, allowing you to control the fire from anywhere in your backyard. Then grab your favorite beverage and head outside to enjoy relaxing by a roaring fire, knowing that you can escape to your luxury backyard even more often than before!
