Outdoor Fire Pits
If you love the look and feel of a bonfire, but don’t necessarily appreciate the mess and danger, fire pits are likely your solution. These are also perfect if you live in a community where fires are not permitted unless they are controlled. A free fire can spread very quickly with one gust of wind. Not to mention, pets and children can stumble into them in the blink of an eye. A fire pit gives you all the benefits you love from a natural fire, while offering an enhanced level of safety.
What is a Fire Pit?
Although years ago, there wasn’t too much of a selection when it came to fire pits, there certainly is now! These are basically a stand that holds your fire in a contained space. The vast majority even have covers to abide by rules enforced by many cities and counties. Fire pits allow you to add your firewood, have a traditional fire and then clean it up when you’re ready because all the ash and soot is kept in the container, rather than blowing all over your lawn. You will also find that some of the styles here at Outdoor Fireplace Pros have a grate that you can cook on, so you can have a real, authentic barbeque!
Choosing the Right One
When shopping for fire pits, the first thing you want to find out is if there are any laws in your area requiring covers. This way, you know which style you should be looking for.
- Budget – If you assume that all fire pits are expensive and out of your budget, think again! Outdoor Fireplace Pros has something for everyone. Determine a price you are comfortable with and go from there. You will likely be very surprised at how reasonably priced they are.
- Purpose – Do you want a fire pit to simply to add a little ambiance to your outdoor living space, or do you need a larger one that all your guests can gather around and keep warm on those cool evenings? Do you intend on using it to cook? Is it going to stay in one place or do you need one you can easily move?
- Style – It doesn’t matter if your outdoor living space is simplistic, contemporary, spa-inspired or country, we are sure to have the perfect fire pit for you. They come in an array of shapes and materials. Some will even have cutouts on the side so you can see the fire from every angle.
Every deck, patio, pool area or budget will become much more enjoyable when you have a warm dancing flame to gather around.
