A backyard fire pit allows you to enjoy your outdoor living area year round, even during winter. Fire pits continue to rise in popularity, and it’s no wonder. There’s just something about gathering around a fire that’s inherently human. A fire pit instantly becomes everyone’s favorite gathering spot. It’s the ideal place to relax, unwind, tell stories, and get to know one another on a deeper level. If you’re thinking of adding a fire pit to your backyard, there are a lot of options to consider before you begin.
Almost everyone loves hanging out by the fire pit while lounging in a yard. Here are a few fire pit ideas that might inspire you to build or buy one.
The Dakota fire pit is an efficient, simple fire design that produces little to no smoke. As depicted in the illustration, two small holes are dug in the ground: one for the firewood and the other to provide a draft of air. Small twigs are packed into the fire hole and readily combustible material is set on top and lit. The fire burns from the top downward, drawing a steady, laminar stream of fresh air from the air hole as it burns. Because the air passes freely around the fuel, near complete combustion is achieved, the result being a fire that burns strongly and brightly and with little or no seen smoke. The Dakota fire pit is a tactical fire used by the United States military as the flame produces a low light signature, reduced smoke, and is easier to ignite under strong wind conditions.
The choice of materials can make your fire pit feel as though it is a seamless extension of your existing landscape design. Although the larger paving stones on this elegant and Mediterranean-style patio gave way to smaller version in the fire pit, the color palette remains mostly the same, helping preserve cohesion.
