Backyard fire pits are a natural gathering place for family and friends. There’s nothing quite like getting together around a crackling fire. Conversations are richer, songs sound sweeter and jokes call forth more laughter. A fire pit makes a dramatic entertainment focal point, and can extend your evening as well as your outdoor living season with its warmth and light. You can honor this most primal of human traditions with a custom designed fire pit for your back yard or patio.
Types and styles of backyard fire pits
Fire pits can be either gas or wood burning. When it comes to an evening of entertaining, both have their advantages. While a gas fire ignites with the flip of a switch, burns clean and is easily controlled, a wood fire has more crackle and pop, that campfire smell, and can host the occasional marshmallow or weenie roast. Though many pits are simple and round, there are exciting designs available and artistic ways of using custom burners in gas editions including cascading fountains of flame!
From backyard fire pits to outdoor ovens
Another popular fire feature is the outdoor wood oven. Used for centuries in Europe and popular among the Amish, outdoor ovens let the kitchen and house stay cool in summer while popping out aromatic pizzas, roast vegetables and the crustiest French bread in town. When the dinner is done, keep the fire going with the door open for warmth and glowing embers.
