Why retreat indoors on these cool spring evenings when you can stay warm on your deck or patio with one of our many styles of beautiful and affordable Outdoor Fire Pits and fireplaces? Stay cozy and warm in the crisp air of winter and spring, and enjoy BBQ grilled meals all year round.
Many outdoor fire pits do not have a rim, or mantel, to rest your feet close to the fire or set down your drink when tending the fire. In addition, when you are cooking on your fire pit grill, you do not have a place to set your grilling utensils and condiments.
Outdoor fire pits are great if you are looking for that feel of a campfire but you want it in the comfort of your own back yard. Now days though, it seems that so many people are just so busy with the family, community activities, and work that they just don't want to loose the time it takes to start a wood burning fire pit.
An afternoon or evening relaxing in the backyard is a great way to spend some time with the family and friends, or even alone after the day at work. For many though, enjoying the outdoors is limited to the summer months because on many days in the other seasons it is just a little too cool to enjoy sitting around talking and relaxing outside.
If you are thinking about a backyard fire pit you need to be concerned about safety. Outdoor fire pits are popular as a centerpiece for entertaining in the backyard these days and to keep everything safe you need to consider two things before selecting yours; safe design and safe use.
Wood fires create sparks, if you are considering a wood burning fire pit make sure it comes with a spark screen. Many popular fire pits have designs cut into their sides; animals, trees, college and professional sports logos, family names, and the like.
Why a stand alone fire pit -
Built in or in the ground fire pits are big, a little bit expensive, and umm…. permanent. You can’t take them with you to the beach or the next time you are tailgating before the game. Another choice is a portable stand alone fire pit. They are usually less expensive than a built in and there is a wide variety of beautiful styles and designs to choose from. You can take them with you to the park and many fire pits come with a cooking grill included so that you can grill up some steaks or burgers or leave it off to roast weenies or marshmallows.
