A fire pit can be a great addition to any backyard and provide you with some soft, ambient lighting throughout the night. Fires are great on summer and winter nights; it is a place for family and friends to gather. Whether you want to make s’mores or simply relax and sip a great glass of wine, you have a few options when it comes to your fire pit.
You can choose from a built-in fire pit. These pits are perfect because they remain in place and you do not have to worry about moving them around, tipping over, or being directly on t ground. You can place beautiful outdoor lounge seating around the fire pit without worry that the flames will become too hot.
A traditional outdoor fire pit is a great way to celebrate any occasion and you can even create a private setting for you and your family. Simply plant some bushes and flowers around the fire pit for a living wall of privacy in your backyard.
3. In the Ground
You can add an in the ground fire pit to your backyard. These types of pits are perfect for those who have a pool in their backyard or those who have a decking area they like to sit on. Of course, you need to be careful with this design as it is sunken into the ground. The flames rise up from the ground to provide an ample amount of warmth and you never have to worry about the flames getting too high or out of control.
Stone fire pits have an elegant beauty to them and they are an attractive feature to any home. When it comes to the fire pit, you can choose from marble, traditional stone, blue stones, and more. The stones are typically stacked in a square or circle figure and the fire and fire materials are inside of the stone wall.
If you are thinking of adding a fire pit to your backyard, you are in for a treat. Your family, friends, and loved ones will enjoy coming over and gathering around the fire for warmth and a good conversation.
