Propane Fire Pits: When someone thinks of using propane, what usually comes to mind is the ungainly sight of an exposed propane tank as in a gas grill. However, landscape designers have solved this issue with some clever innovations. In regard to the exposed tank, there are now fire pit and outdoor fireplace designs which enclose the tank at the base of the structure. The tank is easily accessible through a small door or drawer. The ease of access and the ease of starting the propane fire pit is as simple as turning a knob to ignite the flames. Like natural gas, this design uses fire rings as well, which can be hidden under lava rocks, glass, or imitation logs.

These propane powered fire pits can include wheels at the base for easy portability, a particularly useful feature for those who do not want to bother with the installation of a gas line, especially if it involves having to mess with or completely dismantle their current patio configuration.

Pros: Quick and easy to light, Cleaner than wood fuel, No smoke, sparks or flying embers, Low maintenance/ no ashes to clean,  Provides a clean, crisp flame,  Portable, doesn’t need a permanent foundation, Usually no restrictions, even during no burn days, Available at many home improvement and recreation stores, Less likely to have neighbors call and complain-no smoke issues.

Cons: Doesn’t put out as much heat as wood burning pits, Fire rings may clog, needs maintenance, Propane tank refill costs add up,  Fuel tank is unattractive unless fire pit has a hidden tank option. Again, this option is ideal for homeowners looking to add a fire pit to an existing patio or special area which includes an already installed stone work base.
