Outdoor Fire Pits

Aug 17, 2007
There is nothing like the relaxing heat and the ambiance of an outdoor fire pit for your patio or backyard. No one wants to spend winter or cool summer nights shivering in the outdoors so a fire pit is the perfect solution to avoid the chills.

What to buy though?

The first thing you should consider when buying your fire pit is the size of the unit that you require. The size will of course depend on the expansion of your garden or patio. No point in roasting the family by putting a massive stove in a relatively small patio. On the other hand if you buy a fire pit and it turns out to be too small then it will not do the job it was meant to do, ie. provide heat in the area it is placed.

So, make sure to buy the right size. The easiest thing to do would be to ask the salesperson at the store you buy your fire pit from. He or she will have experience in this area.

Fire pits come in many different ornate designs. They are also made from different metals including copper, steel and cast iron. Some even come with a slide grill for turning your appliance into a barbecue. Most also come with an ash removal can which easily slides out to dispose of the waste from the fire.

For safety reason check to see if the fire pit comes with a spark guard. This is to prevent sparks jumping out of the fire and damaging your patio or charring the grass.

Keep in mind also when buying your fire pit, which type of fuel you are going to burn in it. not all fire pits are suited to the types of fuel designed to burn in them. For instance, some will burn ordinary wood only, while other will burn firelogs. some will burn both. Firelogs will tend to burn much longer than wood and are much better for burning in that respect but as stated above are not always suitable.

Fire pits can be ordered safely online as long as you search for a reputable company. Always make sure to check shipping rates.

If you prefer to have the hands on approach and order from your local gardening department store do not be afraid to ask all the questions you need to ask to make an informed choice of your appliance, taking into consideration some or all of the points above.

Whatever you decide to go for, fire pits provide a fantastic, warm atmosphere and are a practical and sometimes beautiful addition to any garden.
