Depending on how the weather turns, you may find that you enjoy sitting in the backyard at specific times of the year. It is not uncommon to consider different ways to improve your back patio or deck - maybe youve considered a gazebo or garden, or even a firepit to keep yourself warm on cooler evenings. Do you need a firepit to enhance your backyard entertaining, however? It can be a solid investment or a folly, but if you consider the pros and cons you will find youve made the right decision for home improvement. Here are a few points to consider if you have thought about installing a fire shoppe in your backyard: 1) How often do you sit out in the backyard? Do you think the addition of a firepit will inspire you to spend more time outside? The good thing about firepits is that you can use them year round - for cozy conversations during the fall and winter and marshmallow toasting and hot dog roasting in the summer.
If youre less than confident about your fire making skills, check out gas firepits. Yes, they do exist, and look as good as their wood burning counterparts. Being able to flip a switch, and light a match will bring your date close to you in a matter of moments, and doesnt require maintenance to keep it going. As we noted above, being able to successfully ignite a pile of wood is impressive. Buying a pit to handle wood fires is a great way to go if this is your style. You can show off your manly side to your date. Not only is a wood fire exciting, you dont have to settle for a flame size limit. A wood fire can be brought to blazing heights. You and your date can sit close while it dies down to burning embers.
Also, if you live in a condo or other planned community there may be restrictions to what you can have installed in your yard area. Check with your insurance company and HOA or board to see if any regulations prevent you from setting up something. If nothing stands in the way of your plan to enhance your backyard relaxation, you next want to research what kind of pit you want. Do you have an existing deck or patio? You may be able to build onto it and install a gas line for it. If not, you may wish to landscape the backyard altogether with the firepit as the focus. A local contractor or backyard leisure store can offer you many ideas.
