There are many different ways in which you can try to keep your immediate outdoor environment a warm and cosy one.

Here are some of the main methods by which you can heat up the great outdoors.
Wood Burning Grills and Fireplaces
This is something that is very similar to having your very own campfire in your very own backyard. The lovely and soothing cracking and spitting of wood combined with the warmth and the smoke while also letting the flames be contained is a great way to make sure that your winters are more memorable. There are a few different types of arrangements that belong in this category. One is a wood burning grill that can actually be very specifically used for cooking purposes as the name suggests. The other option is an outdoor fireplace that can either be portable or a design that is built in. it will make your patio both look and feel great at the same time. It will basically also look like its indoor counterpart. The other is an outdoor fireplace that is made of brick or stone. Using cinder blocks, bricks or stones, you can actually build yourself one of these as a fun and rewarding DIY project that will not burn a hole in your budget.
Propane fireplaces are one of the most convenient options that are available to home owners. It produces an aesthetically appealing and quality flame that will not require any wood or refills for the gel. They are usually rather big and will immediately draw the eye so if you have it outside on your patio, it will be the biggest eye catcher around. The designs today use substances like rocks, pebbles, fake wood or glass. One of the types of this is a portable propane fire pit which is a really good investment for any home. It will give you all the warmth, atmosphere and also space to grill but it also will give you the ability to move it around. They will either have wheels or will be lightweight so that you can carry it around conveniently. A copper bowl version of this is also available and tends to be the fancy cousin of the former model. It has very high longevity and can be used for a really long time. However it is certainly on the expensive side of things.
Gel Fuelled Fireplaces
