With spring weather upon us, it’s finally time to redecorate your backyard. Whether that’s by adding a new patio chair or grill, no backyard is truly complete without a fire pit. Fire pits can be expensive, hard to assemble or even difficult to clean. Below, we’ve rounded up the best fire pits that are portable, durable and aesthetically pleasing.

Features we looked out for in the best fire pits:

Safety: Check with your homeowner’s association or local city rules to see if you’re allowed to have a fire pit. You’ll want to consider where you place your fire pit depending on the rules in your region.

Type of fire pit: There are both gas and wood-burning fire pits. Wood-burning fire pits require firewood or sometimes charcoal. Gas burning usually works with a propane tank. Wood-burning fire pits generally produce better-quality flames, although gas-burning fire pits may be easier to operate. We’ve included options for both below.

Size and weight: Fire pits can weigh as much as 40 pounds or be as light as 2 pounds. If you’re looking for something more portable, choose a lighter fire pit. If you’re looking for something more stationary to keep in your backyard, you can choose a heavier fire pit – we’ve included options for both.
