As spring starts coming around and you are anxious to get out and enjoy the outdoors, but the temperatures are still uncomfortably cool in the evenings, an outdoor firepit can take enough of the chill out of the air to enjoy your back yard earlier than without one. If you have a hard time giving up the summer as autumn comes around it can fill the same purpose. Backyard firepits allow you to have a fire in your back yard safely without concern from the fire chief. They are self contained and very safe. Some are quite permanent, being made of rocks in a hole or a large boulder rock with the pit carved in the top, but there are many varieties that are light and portable. You can take them with you when you move or even to another location for a party. Outdoor firepits are mostly quite simple to clean and maintain. They make your yard a popular gathering place for the kids and their friends, your own family and friends and neighbors. Your yard can be the envy of the neighborhood and a way to keep your family home and together more.
For smaller groups and personal settings, you can opt for tabletop fire bowls. These surpass the triviality of the candle and add a completely new dimension to your table settings. Large fire bowls create spectacular effects around water displays and on lakeside gathering areas. The reflection of flames against water and fountains, inspire imagination, and feelings of well being. No matter what the application, the variety of firepits available for commercial and group settings is amazing, and guarantees that youll find one, or several, that will work for you. They will keep people talking about your place, and those same people will return with friends and family.
It is fun to gather round a bonfire at night, roast marshmallows, and grill food with family and friends. An outdoor firepit serves as a multi-functional oven - giving warmth as well as to barbeque food. With the advent of the outdoor fire pit, having food outdoor has become fun. Fireplaces that can be put up outdoors can be made from various materials and come in different sizes. You can select the appropriate one for your use. Installing one of these is easy and is one of the best accessories to decorate your yard. You get to feel the warmth yet you do not have to confine yourself to a corner in the drawing room.
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.
