Here is a wide selection of outdoor firepits, and a majority of them have the capability of being gas powered.

There are a couple of ways you can find your local fireplace nerds (gas firepits like above a not generally D-I-Y projects, especially if you're working with propane)

Try the Hearth, Patio & BBQ Association's website and do a dealer search:

Or you can go to the National Fireplace Institute website and find a certified gas specialist:

No ocean or lake view? A pool or spa can create a similar aesthetic. While fire pits are long on charm, it's important to ensure they are also long on safety. Here are a few design tricks for keeping all the appeal while ensuring that your fire is safe and sustainable.

Safety --------- While fire pits are long on charm, it's important to ensure they are also long on safety. Here are a few design tricks for keeping all the appeal while ensuring that your fire is safe and sustainable. Surround with hardscape. As the fire in a pit is more likely to escape than fire contained in a fireplace, surrounding the feature with nonflammable materials like the brick of this patio is key. The decomposed granite and stone border that separates this fire pit from the greenery beyond is a smart safety precaution, particularly in drier climates. Likewise, this mix of concrete and gravel is a safe platform for flame. Can you just hear the fantastic crunch of gravel underfoot as we approach this fire? Dig a pit. The recessed nature of this pit will help keep dangerous stray sparks inbound. Maintain a distance from tall foliage. Placing the fire pit at a safe distance from tall foliage is also a smart preventative measure. Use structure. The shape and structure of the fire pit itself can also encourage appropriate respect.
