A fire pit is a fantastic addition to a yard, making it possible to use the outdoor living areas longer into the fall and earlier in the spring, thanks to the light and warmth they produce. If you’re planning a backyard renovation to add a fire pit to your landscape this year, there are many things you need to take into consideration first. Below is a great list of important factors to get you started so that you can enjoy your fire pit safely.
Depending on where you live, there may be legal considerations that you have to be aware of before you commit to a fire pit. Check with your local government as well as your home owners’ association, apartment complex, or landlord. Different places have different rules pertaining to almost any aspect of owning a fire pit, including where it can be placed (especially in relation to other things like trees or buildings) and what you can burn in them.
There are fire pits available in almost any size, from very small and portable to large built-in hardscape features. When you’re thinking about the size of your future fire pit, consider the diameter of the bowl, the height of the bowl, and the full diameter of the space, including any seating.
There are so many fire pits to choose from these days that you are sure to find one that matches your backyard’s style. The material of the fire pit (usually stone, metal, concrete, or some combination) should match your aesthetic, and the features should complement how you live. For instance, if you want to be able to make changes to your layout, a portable fire pit is best. If you know you don’t have the time or attention to have a wood fire safely, opt for natural gas or propane.
Like every other aspect of fire pits, there is a wide range of costs. You can fit a fire pit into almost any budget since there are many cheap options, but you could also blow almost any budget by going all out on a huge, intricate one. Set your budget, then decide on the qualities of your fire pit that you want.
