Can’t wait for warmer weather? Are you ready to get back to spending time outdoors? As soon as we see a hint of spring-like weather, many of us are ready to get back out there. Installing an outdoor fire pit is a great way to warm up your outdoor living space and get a head start on spring. Carroll Landscaping has years of building outdoor fireplaces and fire pits designed to marry safety with warmth and beauty.
Picking the Right Fire Pit
You can choose from different types and styles of outdoor fire pits to warm up your outdoor living space. Whether you want a manufactured or a custom fire pit, it’s best to consult a professional landscape designer with experience in building and installing them before making your final decision. A classic fire pit’s circular design provides 360 degrees of warmth and comfort for everyone to gather around. Custom fire pits can be built in any shape that complements the design of your existing outdoor living space.
The traditional choice has been wood-burning outdoor fire pits. They are simple to install and maintain, and the structure contains the wood for your fire. It can be constructed with natural stone or engineered products such as bricks or other hardscaping materials. They are easy to operate with no moving parts or gas lines to worry about.
On the other hand, some homeowners prefer to flip a switch once their fire pit is installed. For those, a gas-powered outdoor fire pit may be a better choice. A gas fire pit can be safer than a wood-burning pit as you have more control over the flame. It is also more convenient, as you don’t need to buy firewood.
Fire Pits Add Visual Appeal
Your fire pit will become a focal point of your space, drawing attention to impress guests instantly. A landscaping company can help you select materials and colors to match your house for a cohesive design. Additionally, consider how the surrounding area will look. Choose pavers to match your patio or perhaps some eye-catching stamped concrete. With so much opportunity for customization, fire pits are an easy way to extend your style to the backyard.
A Spot for Entertaining
Not only is a fire pit a visual focal point, but it can also become the central gathering spot. On chilly evenings, your family can warm up around a toasty fire. In the summertime, invite friends over for some s’mores and campfire stories. You can arrange some comfortable outdoor furniture around the fire pit to create a nice seating area. Either way, a fire pit is a cozy and welcoming feature to draw people in.
