Firepits have become a popular addition to outdoor spaces, offering warmth, ambiance, and a gathering point for friends and family. When choosing between wood-burning firepits and natural gas firepits, there are several factors to consider. We’d also recommend experiencing both wood burning firepits and gas powered firepits, as well as talking to the respective owners, so that you can make an informed decision.
While natural gas is typically the best option for gas fire features, propane tanks are conveniently hidden to enable gas features where natural gas plumbing is unavailable or difficult to reach.
Solid Structures incorporates firepits (and other fire features such as gas fire bowls and gas tiki torches) into custom backyard designs on a regular basis all over the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake areas of Coastal Virginia. Therefore, they will be able to properly advise you on the best location options for convenience, safety, and aesthetics. Solid Structures has custom designed and installed outdoor kitchens all over the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake areas of Coastal Virginia. We offer the highest quality types of firepit inserts and other fire feature components. Please check out our Fire Features Gallery and Hardscape Installation pages for more information. If you’d like a design consultation, please Contact Us to get your project started.
Choosing between a wood-burning fire pit and a natural gas fire pit ultimately depends on your preferences, budget, and the level of convenience you desire. Wood-burning fire pits offer a nostalgic and authentic experience but require more maintenance. Natural gas fire pits are more convenient and environmentally friendly but involve higher initial costs. Consider your priorities, space, and lifestyle before making your decision. Whichever option you choose, a well-designed fire pit will undoubtedly become a focal point of your outdoor living area, providing warmth and creating lasting memories.
