Imagine spending a cool night in front of the cozy fire, surrounded by loved ones and good conversation, the starlight twinkling overhead. You can't beat combining the look and feel of a campfire with all the creature comforts of home! Here at Fireside Expressions, we have the answers to expanding your living space into the great outdoors. Perhaps you prefer the charisma of fresh cut logs on the fire as they crackle and put forth an essence of apple or seasoned oak. Maybe you are partial to the instant heat that you can achieve by using a gas burning fireplace, with the ability to turn the flame off at the closing of your evening soiree. Of course, our electric fireplaces are positively enchanting with their LED color-changing light technology! Enjoy the panoramic view of these stunning outdoor-rated fireplaces that draw you in with their magnificent display.

What better way to fill the night air with the kind of fascination and atmosphere you would expect from Fireside Expressions? Whatever outdoor fireplace you choose, we can help you create the backyard living space of your dreams!

  • Wood-burning: regular or BBQ fireplaces. Beautiful stone styles to suit your decor.
  • Gas-burning: natural gas or propane options. We have the right fireplace for you!
  • Electric: top rated fireplaces with massive glass viewing area and LED light technology. Heater, fan, and remote control included.

Let our outdoor fireplace experts at Fireside Expressions help you choose the ultimate extension to your landscape domain. Our natural gas and electric fireplaces are safe to use with fire glass and lava rock - let us help you calculate the correct amount of fire media you will need.

PLEASE NOTE: Because propane is heavier than natural gas, it will sink to the bottom of your feature. Small pieces of fire glass will not allow propane to circulate, and this can lead to the explosion of this particular media. Even with larger fire glass pieces, there is still not enough room for the gas to dissipate from wind and other factors. Lava rock allows propane to dissipate and is the safest choice for your gas feature. (In addition, it is always a good idea to incorporate lava rock into the bottom portion of natural gas burning features.)

We would love to hear your design ideas, and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have. Give us a call at 1-888-986-1535, and let's get started on your outdoor fireplace project today! Please  visit our Info Center for a downloadable manual and answers to frequently asked questions.

We recommend covering the burner with a layer of cinders/lava rock. These should be 1" diameter or larger. Glass should then be used as a topping over cinders/lava rock to approximately 2” in depth. This helps save material, money, and allows for safer operation.
