As a landscaping company, we love being outdoors. We are so excited that the weather is warming and it's more pleasant to spend time outside. If you're like us, there is nothing better than spending time with friends and family in the fresh air or just drinking in the beauty of nature. One of our favorite ways to do this is hanging out around a fire pit. Good conversation, taking in the glow of the fire, and roasting marshmallows are activities for any time of the year. If you are looking for a new or improved fire 'space', here are some styles to consider:
Built-in fire pits are exactly what they sound like: stone styles built right into the patio. Many of our clients have chosen a type of this option. It has a very traditional look that can be installed in a variety of unique colors and a range of interesting shapes. These can be wood burning or gas fed.
If you want more of a classy, modern look, a contemporary fire pit is the one for you. They can be a sleek metal, stone or even wood. These types are very uniform and usually burn natural gas.
These can act as a dual-purpose feature providing both a fire feature and table to enjoy. Typically these will not give off as much heat as normal fire pits, but the convenience of these fire features is becoming more and more popular.
Self-contained fire pits are convenient if you don't want a permanent fixture in your backyard. If you don't have fires very often but still want the option to do so, a self-contained fire pit is a viable option. The most common are circular, but if you want to be a little different, you can also pick a square one. It can easily be stored in the garage or shed and brought out for bonfires with friends and family.
