Summertime is the perfect time for backyard barbecues, stargazing, family gatherings, and roasting marshmallows. With all these different ways to enjoy the nice summer nights, it’s no wonder that you might want to add a new fire pit to your backyard.
Here are three things to consider for your new outdoor fire pit:
- Consider the shape and size: One of the first things to consider about your outdoor fire pit is the shape and size you’ll need. It might be helpful to think about how many people might be gathered around it at a time and how many chairs you will want to fit comfortably around it. It will be important that each guest has enough space around the fire pit to enjoy the nice warmth and bright flames.
- Consider its use: Considering how you plan to use your outdoor fire pit will also help you decide on the size, shape, and design of your fire pit. Will you want to use it solely for a warming flame as you stargaze with your loved ones, or will you be using it more to roast hot dogs and marshmallows?
- Consider the location: Another important thing to consider about your outdoor fire pit is where you would like it to be located. You might choose to have it in the middle of the yard, or perhaps it could be a nice addition to your patio instead and with a cover overhead, so you can enjoy it year round, no matter the weather.
