Many homeowners are using fire pits for warmth, entertainment and cooking or as focal points for an outdoor living space. Some recent trends have included the modification of compression tank ends to create a fire bowl that can be placed in the ground or on legs.
Many cultures, particularly nomadic ones would cut the turf above the fire-pit in a turf cutting ceremony, replacing the turf afterwards to hide any evidence of the fire. Elements of this ceremony remain in traditional youth organizations such as the Woodcraft Folk.
Determining the best location for your fire pit, considering factors such as convenience, space availability and safety. Determining the best size for your fire pit, depending on how many people you plan to accommodate and the room you will need for outdoor seating and unrestricted traffic flow.
Because of the vast array of fire pit designs available, and the importance of choosing the appropriate size and location for your fire pit, be sure to consult with a landscape designer for advice and guidance.
