A fire feature creates a natural focal point in your yard and brings together your entire outdoor living area.

Plus, a fire pit can warm up those chilly fall nights in the Chicago area, extend summer evenings with longer light, and create an activity to bring together your family, friends, and neighbors. A fire feature is a simple, yet luxurious feature to add to your yard to up your entertainment game.

You might be surprised how much difference a small fire feature can make to your outdoor living space. If you want to create a warm and cozy outdoor oasis, a fire feature might be the right choice for you.


What are Fire Features?

Many homeowners in the Chicagoland area want to maximize their time spent outdoors at their homes after coming home from a long day of work.

A fire feature helps you enjoy your outdoor area at all hours of the day and night, and nearly year-round, despite the chilliness of Chicago evenings in the fall.

If you want to create a gathering space for friends and family in your outdoor living area, consider adding a fire feature and enjoy watching the fire dance in your brand-new fire feature in your very own backyard.

Fire Feature Options

When you choose Arbeen Landscaping to add a fire feature to your yard, we handle every aspect of the design, installation, and maintenance for you. There are several different kinds of fire features you might consider for your own outdoor living space. Some examples of fire features include:

  • Outdoor fire pits
  • Patio fire pits
  • Gas fire pits
  • Outdoor propane fireplaces
We will explain some of the different types of fire features we offer at Arbeen Landscaping and how they can benefit your home and your family.

Outdoor Fire Pit

Outdoor fire pits are a great way to pull together your deck, patio, or backyard décor. An outdoor fire pit is a freestanding structure that is typically smaller than an outdoor fireplace.

Since it is freestanding, it won’t have to be connected to a gas line. It is a self-contained feature that we can place anywhere you’d like throughout your outdoor living space.


Options for Fire Features for Your Backyard or Patio

There are several different kinds of fire features available to you. Whether you choose a patio fire pit, gas fire pit, or outdoor propane fireplace depends on your preferences and your home’s outdoor setup.

Patio Fire Pit

If you want to warm up your patio, you need a patio fire pit. Most patio fire pits are fueled by wood or gas. Keep in mind that it is not safe to put a fire pit on a covered patio.

Gas Fire Pits

gas fire pit is another option for a fire feature for your backyard. Gas fire pits are a low-maintenance alternative to a wood-burning fire pit. You will not have to gather wood or clean up ashes after your fire with a gas fire pit.

Plus, a gas fire pit is quick and easy to light and produces heat instantly. Gas fire pits are also smokeless, which makes them a safer option for those who are concerned about sparks and embers jumping from the fire, particularly if you have children or pets around.

When you’re done enjoying your gas fire pit, you can turn it off right away. However, they do produce less heat than wood-burning fire.

Outdoor Propane Fireplace

If you love the warmth and beauty of a traditional wood-burning fireplace, but not all the maintenance it requires, an outdoor propane fireplace is a great option. A propane outdoor fireplace burns propane gas, rather than wood. All it requires is a flick of a switch or a turn of a knob, and you have a beautiful roaring outdoor fire to gather around. As a result, they do not give off sparks or heavy smoke or produce ashes. This is a huge benefit for many homeowners.

Make Your Patio a Multi-Season Space

In the Chicago area, we only get to enjoy a certain portion of the year in our outdoor living spaces…unless we are lucky (and smart) enough to add a few fire features! Enjoy those first spring evenings and chilly fall nights in your yard when you have a toasty warm fire to cuddle up next to with your family.

Add a Cooking Tool to Your Outdoor Space
