Essentially, to make a fire pit only a hole is required in order to safely contain a fire. This can be as simple as digging a hole in the ground, or as complex as hollowing out a brick or rock pillar. A wood burning fire pit should be located at least ten feet (three metres) away from structures for safety. Use of a fire pit in adverse conditions should be avoided, and basic fire safety precautions apply.
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.
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.

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.
There are few things more welcoming in an outdoor space than a fire pit. Fortunately, these amenities come in shapes and sizes to fit nearly every budget and landscape style.
