I wanted my own fire pit for years. And my new backyard had the perfect spot for a round gas fire pit and a set of chairs! In this article I share why I selected a round propane fire pit for my backyard.
Firepits provide a fun atmosphere to backyards and outdoor living spaces. The three main types of fire pits include propane, wood-burning, and natural gas. They are particularly popular to use in cooler months, but I also enjoy mine in the summertime in the evening.

My raised garden bed is doing well and producing a lot of peppers and strawberries. Link to the raised cedar planter here.
There are hundreds of affordable and nicely designed fire pit options. Initially I planned to order a smokeless wood burning fire pit like a Solo or Tiki fire pit. But as a single woman I wanted something easy to turn on and off without much maintenance.
I narrowed things down to propane based fire pits because of their ease of use. Within propane fire pits there are coffee table height designs and higher gas fire pit tables.
Ultimately I selected the Teamson Stone-Look Propane Gas Firepit. The color looks really natural in my backyard, has an adjustable flame height, and it has a wide stone area to rest feet. At the time of my purchase from Wal-Mart this fire pit was priced under $250. I recommend watching for sales!
I also purchased a metal side table designed to hide a propane tank. The lid opens easily for me to shut the propane on and off. Once I turn the propane on, I use the push button igniter to start the fire. It is very easy to use with minimal maintenance!
This fire pit includes a cover that I keep on it when cooled and not in use. After 8 months there is some peeling on the faux stone top, but the fire pit includes a paint touch up kit.
Ultimately I am so glad I purchased this round fire pit for my backyard! For under $300 it looks expensive, is easy to use, low maintenance, and a relaxing place to read and rest our feet.
Do you own a fire pit? Do you use it year round or seasonally? What is its fuel source, wood or gas?
