Imagine further the romantic ambiance with the special person you love sitting close the dancing flames and watching them together from a garden bench or swing. Outdoor firepits are a very stylish and convenient way to create such an atmosphere for such an experience that can be repeated as many times as weather will permit. If you enjoy camping and roasting hotdogs and marshmallows over the camp fire, this doesnt have to replace such trips, but allows you to have many of the benefits you love from camping conveniently right in your own back yard with your outdoor firepit.
Once youve figured out just what to do with the hole, lets look at some decorative edging. Again you can opt to just leave the sides bare. Leaving a gaping hole in the ground probably isnt the greatest idea, someone could trip and fall into the pit. So here are some edging options going again from least to most expensive. Use the dirt that you excavated from the pit to build a berm around the edge of the pit. Like with leaving the hole unlined, youll have to worry about wash out. The next method is to place large rounded stones around the perimeter. The stones can get expensive but youll only need a couple dozen to finish off the edge.
There are other safety issues that you also need to consider when lighting a fire in a copper firepit. Never, ever leave a fire unattended, even for just a moment. Also make sure that any children that are with you keep a safe distance from the fire. Do not allow children to put anything into a burning fire, even if they claim that they know what they are doing. Dont allow children to stir the fire or to add wood or charcoal. Also keep a bucket of water handy in case you need to put the fire out quickly. With a few precautions, you can happily enjoy your new copper firepit for years to come. A little bit of common sense goes a long way. Remember that if something seems like a bad idea, it probably is. Fire can be dangerous, but it doesnt have to be. Use care and make sure that you dont get too close. Follow all directions that came with your firepit. Youll be glad that you did.
If you are the do it yourself type and have the yard space, you can dig your own permanent firepit, lined with brick or natural stones. Plans for these type of pits are readily available online. Of course, you may not want to deal with the extra work involved in finding and hauling wood to burn in your outdoor fire-pit. If so, you might want to consider a natural gas, or propane model. On final note. Fire is nothing to play with. Make sure you take proper safety precautions and obey all regulations. Some jurisdictions place restrictions and may even prohibit outdoor fires of any kind.
