Fire Features enhance your outdoor living spaces and extend the season
Since the dawn of time, outdoor fire has attracted and
entranced. From essentials like heating and cooking to the delights of sharing
and relaxing, nothing warms the heart like sitting around a crackling fire. In
today’s hectic, wired world, the simple pleasure of making memories gathered
around a fire will be treasured for a lifetime by you and your family and
friends. Share stories and songs, roast hot dogs and marshmallows and enjoy a
night under the moon and stars around a fire feature from Patio Town that fits perfectly within your outdoor living space.
Extend your gatherings long into the night and late into any
season with the warmth and beauty of a fire feature in your yard or on your
patio. Radiant heat from a fire takes the edge off a chilly spring day, summer evening
or fall morning. Even in winter’s cold you can gather at home with hot
chocolate around the fire just like at the ski area or skating rink.
Framing with fire
A fire feature can serve as a visual anchor for your outdoor
space or a dramatic focal point. Patio
Town’s fire features are
more affordable than custom-built fireplaces and look just as beautiful, with many
styles and options for every taste and budget. Create an eye-catching majestic
structure that is the heart of your patio, or frame a fire ring kit with seating
walls. Surround a movable firehouse with comfortable outdoor furniture, or select
a corner fire feature to create a cozy conversation nook.
Create an inviting gathering spot with pre-assembled fireplaces,
do-it-yourself kits, fire pots, fire tables, fire bowls, firehouses, firepits, fire
rings and tabletop or freestanding patio heaters. Grills and pizza ovens –
wood-fired and gas – complete any outdoor living, dining or kitchen design.

Fire Ring Kit or a series of fire pots to use as luminaries along a walkway, in

Consider the elements
Consider these elements when purchasing a fire feature for your
home, garden, patio or yard:
Do you prefer a permanent fireplace
or do you want use a fire feature in different spaces? Consider this when
deciding on a freestanding fireplace, a built-in fireplace kit, firepit/fire
ring, or a movable firehouse or chiminea. A fire bowl or fire table is a
movable option too. A patio heater might be the feature you need if you have
limited space like in a town home or apartment.
Do you want a focal point for your
outdoor space? Then our Willow Ridge Fireplace might be what you’re looking
for. For a smaller space or corner, consider the Pacific Living Mid-Size Fireplace.
The Ledgestone Fire Ring Kit is perfect for the yard or installed on a patio or
in a hardscape. A movable firehouse, chiminea, firepit or fire table is great
if you want to match your existing outdoor furnishing as these come in a
variety of styles.
A fire can be a source of warmth
and light at dawn, twilight, in the evening, and into the night. Gather around to
watch the warm glow light up the faces of your guests, or circle an electric
tabletop patio heater for an outdoor game of cards.
Do you have access to and storage areas
for wood? Do you prefer a propane fire table or an electric patio heater? These
choices depend on where and how you will use your fire feature. Electric
tabletop heaters can be used in screened-in porches or balconies, while some wood
fire tables can be converted to tables with inserts and used anywhere. Fire
pots with candles or oil wicks are a great choice for tabletops and walkways.
Different municipalities have various
codes about how close a built-in or permanent fire feature can be to a structure.
Covered fire features like fire bowls or gas fire tables might not be subject
to codes. Contact your local fire department or municipality for more information.

Chiminea: Chimineas are typically large rounded pots with tall chimneys
and an opening on one side. Patio
Town has a hybrid
firehouse/chiminea that is movable and has a removable ash receptacle.
Fire bowl: Movable and portable, fire bowls can be used on patios or
elsewhere to allow for additional seating. Some are light enough to travel to the
beach or cabin. Because the fire source is raised, the heat does not affect the
surface under the fire bowl, which is often made of porcelain-coated steel.
Fire pot: Small fire pots are perfect for tabletop lighting and
luminaries along walkways, paths or unexpected areas of your garden or yard. Many
include lanterns for tea lights or stone bowls with oil wicks. A fire pot is a
unique alternative to candle arrangements used anywhere you would like the
ambiance of flame without the smoke.
Firepit/fire ring kit: Recreate the cabin or cottage experience
right in your own backyard with a firepit or fire ring. Our Ledgestone Fire
Ring Kits come in six colors and are easy to install. They have an outside
diameter of 46” with a 30” metal fire ring insert and optional cooking grate. Ledgestone
Fire Rings work well in hardscapes, such as a paver patio.
Fire table: Popular and multi-functional, fire tables can be used
with colored pebbles or “fire glass” to create a stunning fire-and-ice effect.
Mantles include slate, granite, faux wood and other materials. Round, square or
hexagonal shapes and decorative metal work match any outdoor décor, plus some
have interchangeable side panels. Typically fire tables use propane and have on-off
and heat adjustment switches. Several come with inserts or ice buckets to use
as a table when fire is not desired.
Firehouse: A freestanding firehouse is a flexible option for a
fireplace. Easily movable, most firehouses have a 360-degree view that
surrounds you with warmth. Removable ash receivers make for easy tending and
cleaning, and ceramic tile and wrought iron make these firehouses durable and
Fireplace: Choose a freestanding fireplace with chimney that
diverts wood smoke from your seating or dining area or our easy-to-assemble
kits that look just like more expensive custom fireplaces. Options like cooking
inserts or pizza stones bring out your inner chef, and numerous materials and
designs will complement any outdoor décor.
Luminary: Fire pots and lanterns make great lighting along pathways and
walkways, on tabletops or in unexpected places within the landscape. Luminaries
add ambiance, romance and mood to your outdoor living spaces.
Patio heater: Electric heaters are both functional and stylish and
come in both tabletop and floor styles. As a heat and light source, an
electric, infrared heater is unaffected by breeze or wind. They are easy to
move and have automatic shut-off if tipped over. Tabletop heaters are also
available in LP gas models, without the lighting option. Many are suitable for
patios, porches, decks or balconies so outdoor spaces can be enjoyed later in
the day and longer into the season.
Pizza oven: Infuse a delectable hardwood flavor into your pizzas
right at home and prepare a wood-fired pizzeria-style pie right at home with a freestanding
pizza oven made of decorative iron. Several fireplace styles can have pizza
stone inserts for a similar cooking experience.
