A very popular source of patio heating is the chiminea. A chiminea is simply a pear-shaped oven with a chimney that sits on a metal-legged stand. A door is fitted in the front of the chiminea into which you place seasoned firewood for fuel.


Chimineas come in different sizes and are available in cast iron, steel or clay. The cosy glow of a real fire adds a great ambience to your patio in the evenings, but they do require some maintenance and you do need to clean them out after use.

Fire bowls can make an extremely attractive heating option for your patio. A fire bowl is basically a wide, metal or clay bowl seated on short legs. You simply build a small log or charcoal fire in the bowl to provide a heat source. Fire bowls can also be bought with a barbeque grill attachment, and they usually come with an attractive lid for when the fire bowl is not in use.


One drawback of a fire bowl is that you’ll have to clean it out between uses.


Braziers

Braziers are perhaps the most primitive of heating methods for your patio. A brazier is simply a robust metal basket, set on short legs and standing above a metal ash plate. Some braziers also come with a barbeque grill. To heat your patio, simply build a small log or coal fire in the brazier. You can use a large brazier for burning garden rubbish, as well as for heating your patio.


Although fully portable, a brazier can be a messy way of providing heating for your patio, as ash is readily scattered, especially on breezy days.
