One Night Around a Fire Pit...

Jul 4, 2008
Sitting around a fire pit is an unforgettable experience that conjures up feelings of days gone by. Try it just once and you'll be hooked.

The Night

Not too long ago I was visiting some friends I hadn't seen in a while. After a nice dinner they invited us out into the backyard to sit around the fire pit for a while. I immediately thought "Wait a minute, this is the city and this guy is planning to set up a campfire in his backyard. The local fire department will be here hosing us down before more than 2 sparks shoot skyward."

I somewhat reluctantly followed our hosts out into their backyard, mumbling something about heading out soon and an early rise in the morning. When our friends led us to where they would set the fire, I was struck by what a lovely backyard they had. Everything was landscaped nicely and pavers made a pathway from the house. Not what I was expecting at all. Then I saw the fire pit and wow!

The Fire Pit

There was a beautiful, sleek metal fire pit taking the place of honor in a sophisticated seating area, perfectly set out for friends to sit around and enjoy. As I watched my buddy lighting the fire I was struck by how easy it was and how, even though they'd used the fire pit the night before, it looked as good as new. In no time the flames were going, safely ensconced in a strong, trustworthy container. You could enjoy the fire and the warmth, without worrying about sparks and embers.

I loved the experience so much that I started asking my friend questions about fire pits. He had experienced one first at a friend's home, during a party. At the party there were kids around toasting marshmallows over the fire pit, someone had brought along a guitar and there was a sing along. It reminded him so much of his youth that the next day he started looking into buying one.

Easy and Affordable

When he started to look around, he said that he was amazed at how affordable firepits were and how easy it was to set up and use. He said there are numerous sites, like www.premierefirepits.com, that make it easy to browse and buy from home. It was then simple to make it the focal point of his backyard and add some nice landscaping touches around it. The fact that he was adding something that was a bonus for entertaining just thrilled his wife.

Since they've added the fire pit to their back yard, they've spent more time outside, more time talking together, with their family and with friends. They've also spent less time in front of the television and less gas and money on going out for entertainment. They use the fire pit at least once a week, usually more.

After spending such a fun, relaxing evening around the firepit with our friends, I was convinced. The glowing testimonial was what tipped the scale for me. The next day I ordered a firepit and started to plan the new design of my improved backyard. The firepit has changed how we use our backyard and how we spend our evenings.
