Best of Both Worlds
In addition to style choices, there is also the decision of whether to go with a realistic looking gas-burning log or traditional wood-burning fireplace. Both choices have their pros and cons. Gas offers less to clean but lacks the crackle and pop of wood. A third option is a hybrid that allows the wood to be lit by a gas log starter which will make fire building a cinch. Never again will you struggle with kindling and to keep the logs going. Either way, the ambiance created by adding an outdoor fireplace will be a wonderful addition to your outdoor living experience.
