A Backyard Makeover with a Natural Gas Fire Pit

09/20/2022|by Jason Klein

Is your backyard in need of a makeover? If you're looking for a way to revitalize your outdoor space, you should consider adding a natural gas fire pit. Not only will a fire pit add some extra flair to your backyard, but it will also provide you with a place to gather with friends and family. Here are some tips on how to pick the perfect fire pit for your backyard makeover.

Tips for Choosing the Right Fire Pit for Your Backyard

Outdoor living is all about making the most of your space. If you have a small backyard, then you'll want to choose a fire pit that is compact and easy to move around. On the other hand, if you have a large backyard, you can go for a more elaborate fire pit that will make a statement. 

In terms of material, you'll find that fire pits are made from various materials, including stone, metal, and even glass. Choose a material that will complement the overall look of your backyard.

Size and Shape

When choosing a size for your fire pit, you'll want to consider how many people you'll be entertaining. If you regularly host large parties or gatherings, then you'll want to choose a fire pit that is large enough to accommodate everyone. On the other hand, if you're looking for a more intimate setting, you can opt for a smaller fire pit. As far as shape goes, there are many options to choose from. Round pits are the most popular type, but square and rectangle pits are also available.

Firegear has a selection of fire furnishings that can turn your backyard into an oasis, including natural gas fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, and custom projects to perfect your vision for your home's exterior.


Another important consideration is where you will be placing your fire pit. You'll want to ensure that the location is easily accessible and has plenty of clear space around it. You should also avoid placing your fire pit too close to any trees or shrubs, as these can pose a danger if they catch fire. When in doubt, always err on the side of caution and consult with a professional before making any final decisions.

Fuel Type  

There are two main fuel types for fire pits: wood and gas. Wood-burning pits are the traditional option but require more upkeep than gas-powered pits. Gas-powered pits are available in both propane and natural gas models. Propane models require purchasing and storing propane tanks, while natural gas models must be connected directly to your home's existing gas line. Both options have pros and cons, so be sure to do your research before deciding.

If you love the idea of a wood-burning fire in your backyard but don't want to deal with the smoke and soot, Firegear LUME is the perfect solution . LUME is a clean-burning, smoke-less fire pit that uses innovation to re-burn more smoke and soot before it leaves the appliance, yielding a low-smoke output.

No matter what type of fire pit you choose, you're sure to enjoy spending time outdoors with friends and family. So go ahead and make your backyard dreams a reality with help from Firegear!
