“I want to stay inside all of the time,” said no one ever.
You love being outside. We all do! In the summer you can grill out, let the smell of barbeque waft through the air, and as the warm temperatures give way to a crisp fall, you can get the fire pit up and going to warm your hands and your heart as you spend time making memories with loved ones.
When the weather is nice, you want to be outside making the most of it and that’s why it’s important that your outside be a place where you can do that. Because let’s face it, memories are better when they are made in a place we love to be.
Let us help you make your outdoor living space a place that you’ll want to be every day of the year! Click the categories above to see how we can help you transform your home, or keep reading to learn more about each one and see what’s right for you.
Before we jump into these breathtaking features, let’s go over how fire bowls work. They aren’t giant gaping bowls with every inch a blazing flame (though, we could probably do it for you if you’re into that .) No, the fire bowls we carry are made out of a durable concrete with the color you choose mixed right into it when you order any one of these beautiful fire bowls.
Next, there’s the burner setup. It goes in the bowl and is then surrounded by the fire media of your choice. Hook up the gas (make sure you’ve had it professionally installed) and then stand back to enjoy how the flames look in your brand new fire pit!
But, you’re here for the fire AND water bowls!
With these fire bowls for poolside, you can enjoy how these two elements seem to blend together with the fire reaching for the sky and water, just like any other scupper bowl, flowing into your pool or fountain. Thanks to the wide range of fire media we have as well as the custom colors you can choose for your unique fire and water bowl, your fire feature can be as one-of-a-kind and as unique as you are.
Aside from creating a feature that’ll enhance the ambiance of your patio and pool, these marvelous fire features can increase the value of your property. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a dancing flame while they relax poolside?
Fire pits are a favorite when it comes to outdoor living. They have the benefit of a bonfire where you can gather and socialize around it, but without the potential of it raging out of control and fire department crashing the party.
Unlike the fire bowls we talked about above, you can also have a wood-burning fire pit. There are some sweet advantages to using wood as your fuel, such as:
That last one may just be us. But if it’s you as well, it’s a big deal to stand back proudly as the fire curls up around burning logs! Another big advantage is that you don’t have to wait until the gas company comes out to do a refill.
On the other hand, it’s also really nice to just strike a match, light the burner, and watch as your gas fire pit is up and going, fuss-free.
The gas fire pits we carry are great if you want no mess and no clean up when it comes to enjoying your outdoor space. Gas fire pits for the patio are great choices because of that, and because you don’t have to worry about hunting down quality wood to burn (if you aren’t sure what makes firewood different from other woods, check out our blog on it! )
Do you know what’s better than a fire pit?
A fire pit in the middle of a table, that’s what.
And basically, that’s what a fire table is, just scaled down. Forget hibachi, your crew can surround a blazing fire right as you dig into a fruity dessert. Don’t expect a ton of talking—there’s something mesmerizing when flames jump, dance and curl as the center of attention.
In the words of one of the youngest members of #TeamFDO:
“I want fire!”
And so you should, dear child—but at 2, no way! But, we totally agree, fire is awesome. And if you’re looking at this page you must agree. Our patio living section covers all of the things that enrich your outdoor experience but that don’t fall in one of the above categories.
Water fountains and larger, custom water bowls are featured here, along with firewalls and even outdoor fireplaces! This section has it all!
This category features some familiar fire products, but also some stunning ones that’ll up your living space (or business) wow factor.
Sometimes fire bowls and fire pits are small beans, and you’re looking for something much bigger. And, you need it to be practical too. That’s where an outdoor fireplace comes in! Outdoor fireplaces are made to take the abuse that Mother Nature will put them through. From the design box to stainless steel fireplace accessories, outdoor fireplaces are the best choice if you want something big, impressive, but also that’ll keep you warm.
It’s easy to think that pool scuppers are only good for creating a nice ambiance with the sound of trickling water. And yes, they definitely do that, but do you know that they also help with overflow?
When one body of water is overfull, a spillway is necessary so that the excess water doesn’t go places it shouldn’t. A hot tub, for example, could overflow when more people decide to soak. With a pool scupper, that overflow water could go right into your pool! A scupper is also essential to keeping the water oxygenated and moving in whatever body of water it is connected to.
When we discovered fire, we realized that we could not only cook our food but also stay up late. Permanent tiki torches ensure that you’ll never have to be in the dark again (unless you just want to.) The best part about these tiki torches is that you don’t have to worry about oil or gel—they operate with gas!
And no, not what you had in public school! These water fountains look great in a garden, or perhaps your business’ outdoor space. It’s been scientifically proven that water has a calming effect on us. Maybe it’s because we’re mostly water, or maybe it’s the soft sound of moving water that soothes stress. Regardless of why it works, it does and it’d be a great addition to any home or workspace!
Several of our water fountains feature fire as well, creating a balance and a source of light for those evenings that you need to escape. With these garden fountains, you can listen to the quiet rumble of water and the pop of fire living harmoniously right in your outdoor space.
As far as ambiance and aesthetics go, pool scuppers are a lot like water fountains. Whether you’re swimming or snoozing on a float, you can listen to the gentle water pour into the pool. Serenity aside, pool scuppers also serve the very practical purpose of operating as a spillway.
Not everyone wants a fully assembled fire bowl or fire pit delivered to the door and there waiting for the gas man to come to install it. No, you’re a DIYer.
Where others see a finished project, you see the parts of it and how you’d like to change it.
We see you, and we’re here to help you up to your awesome game. Check out our fire pit inserts and ignition systems! And, our fire shapes will help you make your fire bowl exactly what you imagine.

All you need is the right supplies (hey, we’ve got those), a can-do attitude (you’ve got that), and a certified gas professional to come out and inspect it when you’re done (we can help you get one of those).
When you have a gas product and it isn’t your kitchen stove, you’ll probably want to hide the burner! Fire media lets you do that and you can make it look as natural as you like or as over the top as your heart desires. Check out our different types of fire media in this graphic!
