Small Lava Rock
Small lava rock may be the perfect size material for your gas fire pit. These half and quarter-inch sized pieces provide even coverage that will serve as a bed for other materials, such as fire glass or fire beads, spread over the top of the lava rock.
You will discover that lava rock is an inexpensive fill material for your fire pit. A ten-pound bag of lava rock will fill as much area as twenty pounds of fire glass.
Because lava rock is economical, it is the perfect choice as the first filler that goes into your fire feature to cover up the gas piping and tubes. Once the lava rock is spread the way you want it, add a layer of fire glass to create a truly spectacular look that will instantly become the focal point of your home.
If ceramic logs are your choice of gas fireplace accessory, consider scattering some of the lava rock around the edges of the area to create a realistic. The rock mimics pieces of charcoal and ash. Because it is a natural material, you can expect your lava rock to be in shades of brown and black rather than in one consistently opaque color.
Of course, some people prefer the look of lava rock all by itself, and that remains a decorating option as well.
