Outdoor Fire Pit Or Fire Bowl
What Was My Backyard Missing? A Central Focal Point, A Fire Pit
Have you ever had a "hankering" (that kind of means "desire") to fix up your backyard and make it a place where you could have friends and neighbors over for a beer or glass of wine?
That was my situation a few months ago, my patio and yard were nice but lacked a place we could congregate around and enjoy some friendly conversation.
I tore up a large part of my yard and put paving stones down which made a very nice extension for my concrete patio.
BUT I still didn't have the spot that I really wanted for my socializing.
Then it hit me like a lightening bolt out of the blue. All I would have had to do was get myself a nice fire pit, put my chairs around it and BINGO, problem solved.

When I Wanted To Beautify My Backyard - I Could Have Avoided This And Got A Beautiful Fire PitClick thumbnail to view full-size
I Loved My Yard Until
I loved my back yard until the day I decided to tear it up to try and beautify it by building a large patio.
I spent many days working in the heat of the day to try and get it completed for a weekend gathering. Even though I knew it would look great I wanted to make it perfect. All my neighbors were eagerly awaiting the completion of my yard, so we could again have neighborhood get togethers.
I finally saw my best option, get a firepit that had all the features I wanted and one that would make the yard and patio even more beautiful.
I did complete the patio extension with time to spare and when I put the firepit on it, I just about screamed with joy. It looked wonderful and I have not regreted getting it for a moment.
A Firepit Was My Answer To A Blah Backyard
My Backyard Was A Drag With No Character, Until I Got My New Fire Pit
Research, Research, Research, That Was The Key - To Finding Just The Right Fire Pit
It seems so easy and almost a no-brainer.
Get out the Sunday paper, look at the ads and buy the fire pit that is on sale at the local store.
However---that isn't the case. there are a lot of things to consider before making your purchase.
There Are Many Criteria To Consider
- How big is the area where you will be sitting. A large area needs a large fire pit.
- Do you have other furniture that you would like to match in color or texture
- If you are burning wood, does it have a safety mesh covering, or don't you care if you burn down your house or your neighbors
- How much does it weigh? You don't want it flying away in a strong wind.
- Do you want a round fire pit or a square one
I found it a good idea to look at all the DIY on-line stores to see what was really out there. There are hundreds of sites that have beautiful firepits for your viewing. I was amazed at just how many varieties of firepits there actually were available to me.
You can actually order from some of these sites and get it shipped right to your door. If you don't like it you can ship it back. What a great option.
