Once the stone lining was completed we used an excavator to place the large stone seats. Depending on the size of the stones they may have to be dug into the ground or set higher on gravel to give them an approximately consistent height. Bearing in mind that a comfortable adult seat height should be 300 - 400mm the stones need to conform to this measurement. By the time the concrete is poured and the paving laid the finished ground height will be 150mm higher than existing ground level, meaning that the rocks should stand 450 - 550mm above the ground.
Fire lit areas are a welcome addition for any group, whether it is a casual group of friends, a reunion or even a business meeting. The dim lighting paired with the flickering light of a flame, encourages open communication and good spirits. For a commercial area, gas firepits will be the most obvious choice. They do not have to be maintained by staff, and will keep a flame up for as long as guests are there. Finding the Right Style Because you will be using a gas firepit, the styles you have to choose from are almost endless. For rustic settings, there are wood-look pits that are incredibly realistic. In settings that are modern or settings that you want to look more surreal, there are pits that have fire floating above blue surfaces or burning amidst a pile of smooth rocks. Any of these styles come in small to very large sizes.
The style is important too, as it should fit the style of the wedding. There are casual design pits as well as modern and more formal. If youre grilling, there are outdoor fireplaces that allow for cooking, and table style pits that give you space right beside the fire to keep drinks and utensils. Choose a design and size that works for your number of guests. Most pits allow access from any side, which is ideal in this type of large gathering. The number of guests will dictate the size or number you will need. Decide if you want one or two large pits, or several smaller pits. This will depend on the number of guests and the possibility of family members that may not get along. In the latter case, youll definitely want more pits in order to keep certain guests separate.
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.
