Sitting around a fire is relaxing and brings back many fond memories of times spent with family and friends.

How much space do I need for a fire pit?

Fire pits can work in yard spaces that are large and small. In a small yard they can become the centerpiece of your entertaining area. In a larger yard, they can be a great area to entertain large crowds. One item to note, they should be 10 feet away from your house for fire safety.

How do you entertain?

Do you like to have a big group of people every time you have a get together or do you prefer just your family or significant other? This will determine how much seating and space you need for your fire pit. Lighting up a fire is a natural way to create a focal point at an outdoor gathering. Whether it’s the dancing flames or some sort of memory, the fact is that people love to gather around fire. And if you’re looking for an excuse to invite people, all you need to say is “We’re lighting up the fire pit tonight. Want to come over?” Fire pit creates a cozy atmosphere for two. Fire pits aren’t just good for parties; they are equally suited to romantic nights for two. You may be tempted to skip the night out when you can sip wine beside the fire in your own backyard as stars twinkle overhead.

Do you want permanent seating around the fire pit or not?

Some customers prefer permanent seating or they want to provide their own chairs or a combination of both. Seating around the fire pit is essential and some ideas include more permanent seating such as seat walls, as well as sofas chairs which allow for flexible casual seating.

Do you prefer wood, gas or propane?

Wood Burning-
Pros:  The smell and sounds of real wood burning. Less costly than gas. No maintenance or nothing to go wrong.
Cons: Less spontaneous. You have to carry the wood, build it and have lighting material. Sparks flying out of the fire pit can also increase fire dangers. You need a place to store and keep dry wood.

Natural Gas Fire Pit-
Pros: Lighting the fire in a gas fire pit is as easy as flipping a switch, which may mean you use it more often. Gas fire pits can often be installed where wood fire pits cannot, such as on decks.
Cons: Installation is more expensive and is dependent on being able to connect to an underground natural gas line. Once installed, you cannot move the fire pit.

Sitting around a fire is relaxing and brings back many fond memories of times spent with family and friends, but not many people have a relaxing fire feature on their own property. Creating your own private backyard fire feature can be more affordable than you may think and it comes with certain advantages.

How Does a Fire Feature Benefit Your Outdoor Entertainment Area?

Why not just go to the big box store and buy portable outdoor fire pits? You could, but it may not be your best or most cost effective option. One main advantage to having a permanent location for your fire features is that we can customize it to your specific needs. A customized fire feature is also more aesthetically pleasing to be around and is typically safer than most portable units.

These gas outdoor fire pits from Outdoor Innovations are a great way to add a fire feature to your property, and demonstrates how a permanent outdoor fire feature can be all the more appealing and beautiful than a cheaper, portable unit.
