Many people opt for a mobile fire pit that can be moved around to various locations. Movable fire pits are certainly less expensive than a built-in pit, come in a wide variety of designs, and have the added benefit of portability. The primary drawback, however, is that a movable fire pit tends to only last a season or two before the materials begin to deteriorate.
Pre-made fire pits are the most common form of fire pits and can be purchased from a store. These are commonly made of pre cast concrete or metal and/or a combination of metal table and stone. They are usually natural gas, propane ( LP ) or bio ethanol. Wood burning fire pits made of metal are also quite common but under increasing scrutiny due to fire bans and air particulate emissions. Natural gas and propane burners in these sort of pre fabricated vessels are certified under ANSI ( American ),CSA ( Canadian ) and CE ( European ) standards. Unregulated and uncertified fire pit burners are increasingly being scrutinized by regulatory authorities and being denied permits. Fire pits have recommended clearance to combustibles and require at least 5 feet above the flame and 16" circumference from the exterior perimeter of the vessel.
For very narrow landscape spaces, a full circle may not be feasible for a fire pit. That’s OK: Like so much else in our homes, fire pits very much adapt to our personalized style as well as our space restrictions. This half-circle fits neatly into a sloping space that’s not deep enough to accommodate any wider diameter.
Although fire pits are a common appearance in more traditionally influenced landscapes, with the right detailing they can fit perfectly in modern-leaning yards. That’s why the choice of material is particularly important if you’re adding a fire pit after the backyard gathering area has already been assembled. Here, an atypical fire pit design -- a sloped-in base -- as well as the neutral color and wide top shelf help give this portable fire pit a clean-line aesthetic.
